Funding Policy

Your initiative, our support: the partner approach of the Chagnon Foundation

Update: April 1, 2018

Are you trying to obtain funding for an initiative that mobilizes actors in your community? Does your project tie in with the objective of preventing poverty by fostering the educational success of the children and youth in your area or throughout Quebec?

Like thousands of organizations and partnership coalitions across the province, we share this crucial objective for our society with you. As a philanthropic organization, our goal is to provide long-term support for your capacity for action-and that of your collaborators-in order to create sustainable conditions for preventing poverty and promoting educational success.

The information provided in this section will help you determine if we could be a valuable partner in your endeavour, your vision and your projects, as well as in the development of your organization and those of your collaborators.

This content defines the different forms of support we offer and the type of relationship we hope to create with the groups we work with: mutually respectful, tailored to your needs, and sustainable.


Do you think we could be one of your partners? Tell us about your project!

But before you send us your application…

To avoid needless work on your part, first ensure that your project does not fall into the category of initiatives that the Chagnon Foundation does not support.

Then, send us a short document (max. 500 words) containing: 

  • A presentation of your objective or project, along with a brief explanation of who you are, your views on the causes of poverty and the conditions you would like to change (working with your partners) in order to improve the educational success of children and youth. 
  • An explanation of the type of support you are interested in, based on our new orientations. Do you intend to request funding for a community, network or resource?

Feel free to include any other existing document you feel is pertinent.


IMPORTANT: Your request will be carefully studied based on our orientations, and you should receive a response within 6-8 weeks. If we require additional information, or if you have asked for clarification, we will contact you in due course.
