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 Financial Group 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 Financial Group 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.
