La Fondation Véro & Louis

The goal of the La Fondation Véro & Louis is to create assisted living facilities for adults age 21 and over who are on the autism spectrum so that they can live up to their full potential. The Foundation offers families what is most precious: the confidence that their autistic child is in a caring, safe and supportive environment.

Little Brothers

Little Brothers can rely on the La Capitale Foundation’s support to help achieve its mission. Now that it has a multi-year agreement, Little Brothers can take advantage of its partnership with La Capitale in the service of a common cause that is dear to the hearts of both organizations: helping vulnerable and isolated seniors. The La Capitale Foundation is contributing to the ambitious project of raising six million dollars over five years to improve the living conditions of the elderly, who often find themselves separated from the active world and struggling with precarious finances.

Given the key social and economic role La Capitale plays, we are proud to contribute to the progress and well-being of the whole community through the La Capitale Foundation, formed a few years ago.

The Foundation's primary objective is to provide assistance to various organizations, recognize the work of public service employees and further the promotion and development of mutualism. The Foundation provides support mainly for efforts to improve the quality of life for vulnerable seniors and those with an autism spectrum disorder or an intellectual disability. Since it was formed, the Foundation has invested more than eight million dollars into the community, thereby contributing to the well-being of thousands of people in need.

The La Capitale Foundation is solely responsible for examining all requests for support that it receives, in order to determine whether or not they meet the eligibility criteria established by the Foundation and are in line with the Donations Policy.
