Centraide launches a new initiative: the Collective Impact Project (CIP)
On October 15, 2015, at a breakfast seminar organized by the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal, Lili-Anna Pereša, President and Executive Director of Centraide of Greater Montreal, announced the launch of the Collective Impact Project (CIP), aimed at supporting communities in their efforts of break the cycle of poverty in Montreal neighbourhoods.
The Lucie and André Chagnon Foundation, along with four other foundations-the Silver Dollar Foundation, the Foundation of Greater Montreal, the J.W. McConnell Foundation and the Mirella and Lino Saputo Foundation-is proud to participate in this project, which represents a new form of support for community development and ties in with the Foundation's mission to prevent poverty through educational success.
"Too many Montreal families live on very low incomes. This is inacceptable in a society such as ours, and it is our duty to act together to rectify this situation. The Collective Impact Project (CIP) is the perfect example of a concerted action by a philanthropic community."
Claude Chagnon, President
Lucie and André Chagnon Foundation
Thanks to its expertise and leadership, Centraide of Greater Montreal has always played a key role in the community. Now that role is more relevant than ever.
