The La Capitale Foundation launches the ShineBEYOND prizes!
November 1, 2017 – The La Capitale Financial Group Foundation is launching the ShineBEYOND prizes, an initiative that aims to finance three projects related to one of the Foundation’s causes: autism, intellectual disability and vulnerable seniors.
“We are very pleased and proud to invite organizations to present a project related to one of our Foundation’s causes for a chance to earn one of three $15,000 prizes to help them make the project a reality and shine a light on their cause. With this initiative, we want to highlight the value of acceptance, support, respect and inclusion of these groups in our society,” said Jean St-Gelais, La Capitale's Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer.
Charmed by the Call to Project, the illusionist Luc Langevin accepted to support it. “It’s an honour for me to be associated with ShineBEYOND and salute the work of people who take care of what matters most: the well-being of people around them,” said Langevin.
The ShineBEYOND Call for Project is a La Capitale Financial Group Foundation initiative that aims to provide financial support for non-profit organizations dedicated to projects related to one of the Foundation’s three causes.
Organizations are invited to present their project related to autism, intellectual disability or vulnerable seniors by completing the application form available at lacapitale.com/RayonneDon, between November 1 and December 22, 2017. The selected projects will be announced in February 2018.
In line with La Capitale’s values of social commitment and responsibility and its people-first attitude, the company donated close to $1.3M to more than 200 organizations in Quebec and across Canada in 2016, through its La Capitale Financial Group Foundation. The Foundation’s objective is to improve the quality of life for individuals, in particular those with an ASD or an intellectual disability as well as vulnerable seniors.
