Depending on grantees’ needs and capacities, the Chagnon Foundation’s total financial support could increase from its previously earmarked $350 million to $500 million during the upcoming five-year period.

The Lucie and André Chagnon Foundation contributes to the prevention of poverty by focusing on educational success—a priority reinforced by Quebec society. Because of our philanthropic status, our resources are there for the community: 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.
