Each donation makes it easier for women to succeed in their new professional project.

“I’ve always felt deeply concerned and involved with the cause of women. Believe in her, a solidarity movement launched by the Lise Watier Foundation, is committed to supporting women in their professional development and promoting their financial autonomy, to help them undertake their quest for change. By joining forces with them, we have the power to make a real impact on women’s lives, and in many cases, on their families.”

Write an encouraging message

The participants of the Let’s Start Up program of the Lise Watier Foundation have experienced situations of vulnerability. They are now working hard to find their way back to financial independence. Help them believe in themselves and spread their wings by writing them an encouraging message! 

$5 will be donated by our partner la Vie en Rose for each message written. 


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.
