At GAIN Group we endeavour to share our successes with our local community on Vancouver Island by supporting the arts, sports, festivals, families and children in need, fundraisers, hospitals, foundations and more. One of our ways to give back to our community and help those in need is to become Life Legacy member of the David Foster Foundation since 2015. Most recently we have proudly extended our funding relationship by committing to a 10-year, $1 million mark funding agreement until 2024. Our ongoing financial assistance will allow the Foundation to support the non-medical expenses of dozens of Canadian families undergoing life-saving pediatric organ transplants so that families can focus first on looking after their child and not be burdened by the thought of losing their home or not being able to pay bills.
Supporting Our Communities
“We are very grateful to have the David Foster Foundation as a community partner of the GAIN Group and for allowing us to be a part of making a difference in the lives of Canadian families during some of the hardest times their families have to face. We are excited and honoured to be making this difference with you.”
“We strive every day to give our clients and guests the best service we are able to give. Being able to support our communities and helping people in their time of need is the most rewarding result of our teams’ hard work. We look forward to many years of partnership together.” Dr. Sylvester Chuang, CEO, GAIN Group.
Assisting Families in Need
The David Foster Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to providing financial support for non-medical expenses to Canadian families with children in need of life-saving organ transplants. Since 1987, the David Foster Foundation has assisted over 1,100 families with children in need of major organ transplants and provided much-needed dollars in direct family support. In 2006, the Foundation became a national organization, expanding to help families across Canada.
Through the David Foster Foundation, Canadian families receive financial support so they can be with their child during the entire life-saving organ transplant process. From the initial transplant, through to the postoperative care and annual checkups which can often go on for 7 or more years.
In addition to providing financial support to families, the foundation also strives to increase public awareness about the importance of becoming a registered organ donor and thus, they have established the “Be a Donor, Save a Life” Campaign.
