About The Organization

The Fondation du Grand Montréal is a vital philanthropic organization in the Montreal community, offering opportunities for both individuals and organizations to engage in charitable activities. They enable the creation of new funds and contributions to existing ones, facilitating grants for initiatives aimed at supporting asylum seekers, refugees, and migrants with precarious or temporary status through initiatives like the Fonds Collectif pour l'équité sociale. What sets this foundation apart is its emphasis on fostering a deeper connection between donors and charitable causes, believing that philanthropy goes beyond monetary contributions—it involves actively engaging with and understanding the work of charitable organizations. By encouraging this level of engagement, they aim to amplify the impact of charitable efforts. This approach is exemplified through stories like Diana and Sam Scalia's fund creation to support scholarships, showcasing the meaningful impact donors can have when they align personally with charitable causes. With a strong focus on community engagement and support, the Fondation du Grand Montréal serves as a catalyst for positive change in the region, enabling individuals and organizations to make a significant impact on social and humanitarian causes.
