THE GIUSTRA FOUNDATION
Making a difference for two decades.
The Giustra Foundation was established in 1997 by Canadian businessman and philanthropist Frank Giustra. The Radcliffe Foundation supports a wide variety of international and local causes, focusing on women, children, education, and jobs.
Since 2005, the Giustra Foundation has been an active supporter of the International Crisis Group, a widely recognized independent, non-partisan source of analysis and advice to policymakers on the prevention and resolution of deadly conflict. In 2007, Mr. Giustra and former U.S. President Bill Clinton launched the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership, with the mandate of creating social and economic development programs through impact investing, in parts of the world where poverty is widespread.
Mr. Giustra is a founding patron of the Boys Club Network, an at-risk youth mentoring support group in Vancouver, Canada. The Radcliffe Foundation was also an inaugural supporter of Streetohome, the first broad community-based initiative to bring together stakeholders from business, nonprofits, and governments with citizens to address homelessness in Vancouver. Most recently, the Giustra Foundation has actively responded to the ongoing refugee crisis by providing humanitarian aid to refugees in Greece and Turkey. Eight hundred of the most vulnerable refugees in Idomeni will get new accommodations in Thessaloniki, thanks to an unprecedented private-public partnership between the Radcliffe Foundation and the Greek Ministry of Migration.
For two decades, the Giustra Foundation has been dedicated to enhancing the welfare, health, and education of children; supporting programs to enhance health generally; and financing and promoting education.
