About PGCF

We are a group of University of Calgary students, alumni and faculty members who are striving to contribute to community building and promotion of charitable and humanitarian activities in Calgary. The Persian Gulf Charity Foundation (PGCF) is a student based entity; however we would be glad and honored to accept the help of non-student patrons and volunteers. 

PGCF holds more than 10 events annually including Toranj Summer Festival which is the largest gathering of Iranian community in Calgary.

How We Raise Money

Bottle Drive

Bottle Recycling for Charity is our oldest and most continuous source of income with around 4 events per year since 2010.

Charity markets

Charity markets are a great opportunity to promote the culture of giving in the community. 


We accept donations through our Coin Bank Program as well as cheques, cash, and e-transfer.

Volunteer program

PGCF is run by volunteers. By volunteering, people can give something of themselves and make a valuable contribution to the community while perhaps learning new skills and improving their health and well-being. Please contact us at if you’d like to help us.
