The Inspiration Behind The Foundation

Sanjay's Legacy Has No Beginning & Will Have No End

The Sad and sudden demise of Sanjay Anand was, is and shall remain the motivating force behind The Sanjay Anand Charitable Foundation. Sanjay's extraordinary qualities as a leader, son, brother, friend, and gentleman continue to inspire us every day. His fusion of eastern values with a western lifestyle reflects the essence of the foundation's work. We honour Sanjay's legacy by providing medical treatment, surgery, and rehabilitative services to the underprivileged in India. Our goal is not only to save lives through these efforts but also to ensure free post-care for those in need. Established in 1995 by his parents, Sunil and Anu Anand, the foundation carries forward Sanjay's spirit of selflessness and generosity. Join us in transforming lives and inspiring hope.

You Do Not Know What You Have, Till It Is Gone

Ironically, Sanjay Anand's true legacy became evident only after his untimely demise on May 10th, 1995. Inspired by a higher calling, his parents Anu and Sunil Anand selflessly donated all of their son Sanjay’s organs, which left behind a profound impact on countless lives. Sanjay’s friends came forward immediately, testifying to his unwavering kindness, describing him as someone who would give the shirt off his back in times of need. His spirit lives on through the transformative efforts of The Sanjay Anand Charitable Foundation, reaching thousands with the bread of life. At The Sanjay Anand Charitable Foundation, we strive to honour his legacy by continuing to transform lives and inspire hope.

The Sanjay Anand Charitable Foundation: Providing Life-Changing Medical Care and Hope to the Underprivileged in India

At the heart of The Sanjay Anand Charitable Foundation (SACF) is a powerful mission – to provide essential medical treatment, surgery, and rehabilitative services to the poor of India. Our goal extends beyond saving lives through these critical interventions; we are committed to offering free post-care services to those in need. Established in 1995 by Mr. Sunil Anand and his wife, Mrs. Anu Anand, in memory of their beloved son Sanjay Anand, the foundation has become a beacon of hope and healing.

Sanjay's legacy is one of selflessness and generosity, borne out of a tragic car accident that claimed his life in Staten Island, New York. In the face of unimaginable grief, the Anand family made a remarkable decision – they offered their son's organs and tissues, saving the lives of many strangers.

  • Sanjay's gift of vital organs and tissues through the New York Regional Transplant Program benefited over three hundred individuals.
  • Disabled children were able to walk again with his bone donations to the greater Metropolitan Bone Bank.
  • Two people were given the gift of sight through the eye bank.
  • The New York Cornell Medical Centre used Sanjay's skin grafts to help a burn victim.

Sanjay's legacy lives on, not just in the memories of those he touched, but in the hearts and bodies of all those who benefited from his generous gift.

Inspired by the transformative power of organ and tissue donations, Sunil and Anu Anand established The Sanjay Anand Charitable Foundation Inc (SACF) in New York and The Sanjay Anand Charitable Trust in New Delhi, India. Through these organizations, the Anand family continues their life-changing work, empowering communities and changing lives.

When you choose to support The Sanjay Anand Charitable Foundation, you become part of a movement that upholds the belief that every life has equal value. Our approach to this work is rooted in humility, mindfulness, respect, and ethics. We believe that true change begins with a single step, and we are committed to this journey of transforming lives and inspiring hope.

Transform lives. Inspire hope.
