What we do not support

In order to offer an approach that complements the efforts of other philanthropic organizations without replacing the role of the government, the Foundation does not provide funding for the following:

  • Direct/clinical services offered by individual organizations to children, youth, parents or families 
  • Base funding for organizational operating costs or to supplement government funding
  • Individual grants
  • Emergency funds
  • Equipment
  • Food
  • Clothing
  • School supplies
  • Fundraising activities
  • Projects outside of the province of Quebec
  • For-profit projects
  • For-profit enterprises
  • Individual projects or projects on behalf of an individual


Note that although the Chagnon Foundation supports studies and communication activities related to public policy, it does not support partisan political activities.



We believe

"We believe" is a short video that uses images to illustrate our constantly renewed desire to prevent poverty for the good of future generations in Quebec.
