Every dollar donated counts towards the continued well-being of our community. 
Your contribution is part of that lasting legacy.

Who receives grants?
We support the registered charities in our area, to allow them to do the work that is needed in the community

How does it work?

Very simply.  Donations made to the Foundation are invested in a professionally managed portfolio of fixed income and equities.  Then, the yearly earnings from these investments are returned to our community in the form of grants to qualifying recipients every year.  Almost all the capital from donations remains invested in perpetuity to keep generating earnings.

Why Donate?

To make a difference and give back to the community by enhancing the quality of life for people who live in the Deep River, Laurentian Hills, Head, Clara and Maria, and Rapides des Joachim area.

Who Donates?

People who care about our community: individuals, families, current and former residents, and organizations

Who volunteers?
