A $150,000 Donation for In-home Respite

15 January 2020

The Lighthouse Children and Families is extremely proud to be the grand winner of the iA Financial Group philanthropic contest and to receive a donation of $125,000! Also recipient of the Coup de cœur Award from iA Financial Group employees, along with an additional donation of $25,000, thus receiving a total donation of $150,000!

Having stood out among hundreds of organizations from across the country, The Lighthouse’s project Light in the Storm made it to the top ten finalists and won over the hearts of the public, who had to vote for the most inspiring initiative. This significant financial support will allow The Lighthouse to extend its services and provide respite at home to families living in remote areas of Montreal, including Outaouais, Eastern Townships, Mauricie, Abitibi-Témiscamingue and Gaspésie.

Thank you all for voting in such high numbers, The Lighthouse is infinitely grateful for the community’s support!
