Our generous donors

Since 2009, the Lise Watier Foundation is pleased to be able to count on the support of valuable donors who are committed to the professional development of women here.

 

Together we are making a difference… one woman at a time

Among our generous benefactors are well-known companies, both large and corporate citizens who are committed to our cause. Some of them are the official sponsors of our fundraising events, while others have supported us in a multitude of ways since the Foundation’s inception. 

We would like to acknowledge the extraordinary commitment of these companies to the Lise Watier Foundation. Thanks to their contributions, we can have a positive and tangible impact on the lives of the women we help. We thank each one of our benefactors for joining forces with us to make a difference… one woman at a time!

MARIE-ÈVE

Graduate of the Let’s Start Up Program

The Lise Watier Foundation offers the Let’s Start Up program in Montreal, Toronto, Quebec City, the Laurentians and Montérégie. More than 200 women a year are committed to taking action through the Let’s Start Up program. They graduate with a better understanding of their strengths and skills, as well as the knowledge and tools to implement their professional project. Women thus begin a new journey towards financial independence through entrepreneurship, a return to school or a more fulfilling job.
