Mission

The mission of the LÉGER FOUNDATION is to support innovative community-based initiatives in Quebec and elsewhere to improve the well-being of vulnerable and marginalized persons, here at home and abroad.

The LÉGER FOUNDATION promotes initiatives aimed at making a real difference in the living conditions of vulnerable and marginalized populations. Without limiting the means of action or results that organizations attempt to achieve, the LÉGER FOUNDATION seeks two major outcomes:

  • reducing vulnerability in terms of food, and economic and physical security
  • fostering the social inclusion of marginalized populations

Because of its mission, the LÉGER FOUNDATION differs from other organizations active in Quebec and elsewhere in the world through the emphasis placed on:

  • organizational strengthening
  • documenting results and approaches
  • sharing of experiences and knowledge
  • sustainable action
