Although the Foundation intervenes in several sectors, four more specific philanthropic intentions transcend its traditional fields of action. These intentions, to some extent, represent the Foundation’s aims, the philanthropic impact we want to have within the organizations with which we work.

Beyond the area of intervention and the mode of support offered, the Foundation is more specifically interested in organizations whose mission or project is correlated to the following themes: 

 

DEVELOPMENT OF INNOVATIVE PRACTICES

  • New modes of intervention
  • Review of internal process to meet evolving needs
  • Adaptation/transformation of good practices to meet your stakeholders’ needs

 

CREATION AND SHARING OF KNOWLEDGE

  • Development of a community of practice
  • Deployment of tools allowing sharing of good practices
  • Transfer of methodologies from the academic (and research) communities to the intervention communities 

 

COMMUNITY MOBILIZATION 

  • Collaboration of several players on the same problem (in the context of a project)
  • Initiatives favouring citizen participation in a perspective of societal development/transformation 
  • Creation of multisector alliances to break down barriers

 

ORGANIZATIONAL OR PERSONAL CAPACITY BUILDING 

  • Development of an assessment and impact measurement strategy
  • Deployment of tools (e.g. data collection, analysis, project management, etc.)
  • Integration of new competencies to ensure greater organizational and individual autonomy
