About Us

When we founded the Godin Family Foundation in 2000, our goal was to focus on children and teens, and that remains our goal today. We believe that by supporting organizations working in the health and education sectors or fighting poverty, we can offer hope to children, teens and families in difficulty.

To date, the Godin Family Foundation has helped close to 450 different organizations. We are proud of what we have accomplished and are committed to fulfilling our mission with teens. We direct our efforts to all regions of Quebec and across Canada.

Everything we do is driven by concern for the future of today’s youth. That is why we feel it is important to support challenging projects which will bring young people together and motivate them to choose a life plan allowing them to develop their self-esteem and acquire independence.

We believe that by making a difference today in the life of these youngsters, tomorrow’s adults, our society will become better educated, healthier and more just.
