A new duo
In 2017, we took an important step forward in our history.
After many years of dedication, the Foundation’s founders gradually stepped down and passed the torch to their successors. It was a smooth transition made possible by deeply rooted human values shared by directors and employees alike.
The pride that comes with working to fulfill the Foundation’s mission is reflected in a strong sense of belonging and enduring passion. The wealth of our projects and activities speaks for itself. Naturally, we have our share of challenges, for example, the geographic remoteness from large urban centres of our institutions in Valcourt and financial pressures that affect our partner organizations. But our in-depth knowledge of the community and its needs, combined with the originality of our programs, allows us to occupy a key position on the philanthropic and cultural stage.
The results of our actions are reflected in strong and connected nonprofits, visitors and school groups inspired by ingenuity “the Bombardier Way” and a community that rallies around a dynamic cultural and artistic hub.
All of this is led by a team that channels its endless imagination into effective management!
Nicole Beaudoin, President and Sonia Labrecque, Executive Director
