Projects financing

The LÉGER FOUNDATION primarily supports initiatives which aim to improve conditions for those in need through the promotion of either food security or social inclusion.

Since the implementation of our Dignity For All action plan, the total number of initiatives we support has gradually decreased in favor of a strategy which emphasizes broader overall financial support for organizations, a condition which encourages initiatives to operate at their full potential for the greatest benefit to individuals and their communities.

Organizations wishing to partner with the LÉGER FOUNDATION must demonstrate a high level of innovation, be directly engaged with those whom their initiatives aim to help, and ensure initiatives are designed in such a way as to be durable and sustainable for communities in the long term.

All organizations must complete the financial request application form which best describes the nature of their initiatives: either food security or social inclusion.

To learn more about becoming a partner organization, read the Application guidelines.
