We are committed to using all the levers available to us—our investments, endowments and capacity for influence—to further the cause of social justice and the capacity for action of all those who are making a difference in the lives of all young people living in Québec.
Take the time to read through our guidelines and think about whether our collaborative approach is a good fit for your organization. If your project corresponds to the type of support we offer, we encourage you to send us a letter of intent.
The Lucie and André Chagnon Foundation contributes to the prevention of poverty by helping to create conditions that will enable all young people living in Québec to develop their full potential. In so doing, the Foundation is responding to priorities that have been continually reaffirmed by Québec society. Because we are a philanthropic organization, we recognize that our resources are for collective use, and that we are responsible and accountable for our actions and the consequences of those actions. We believe that our contribution should complement, not replace, the essential and legitimate role of government.
