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!

” I felt exhausted, so I questioned my future. The program changed my life!  It allowed me to refocus on my needs and visualize where I wanted to go. I met women who gave me confidence and shared their knowledge to help me start my own business.

“Go ahead, believe in your dreams because anything is possible, really, ANYTHING! Never, at 60, would I have thought it was possible… But thanks to the Let’s Start Up program, I have come out of my shell; I now realize how much potential I have, and I know I will make it.
