About the foundation

The CLSC Lac-Saint-Louis and Pierrefonds Foundation has existed for more than 18 years and has collected funds used to carry out projects linked to the health and the social services departments of the CLSC of Lac-Saint-Louis and Pierrefonds. These funds make it possible to assist with people who have lost autonomy and the families of children or teenagers who have particular needs: subsidies for a child or a teenager with a disability to take part in a day camp, to offer respite to an overloaded family, to buy specialized equipment, etc .

Requests for assistance are submitted by the front line professionals of the CLSC: doctors, nurses, social workers, psychologists, occupational therapists etc.

Since the Foundation is comprised of volunteers, 97% of your donations go directly to the beneficiaries.

Over the last two years, the Foundation has helped over 850 people in our community with more than $75,000.
