Co-Chairs of the 2018 Centraide Campaign
Marie-Josée Lamothe from Google and Stephen Bronfman from Claridge will head up Centraide of Greater Montreal’s 2018 campaign
Marie-Josée Lamothe, Managing Director of Branding at Google Canada and Managing Director of Google Quebec, and Stephen Bronfman, Executive Chairman of Claridge, will serve as co-chairs of Centraide of Greater Montreal’s Campaign 2018. They will be supported by about 30 volunteers from businesses, institutions and trade unions. These invaluable partners will meet with the leaders of organizations to implement Centraide’s next workplace campaign.
Marie-Josée Lamothe is a member of the board of directors of several non-profit organizations. At Centraide, she helped launch TechAide, a group that organizes charitable events for the new technologies sector.
Committed philanthropist Stephen Bronfman has been involved in many major fundraising campaigns. He has actively supported a variety of causes, including Centraide, for many years.
“Montreal’s economy is getting better, but poverty is still very much with us. Many people, even if they have a job, just can’t rise above the low-income cut-off. The campaign will support the mission of community agencies that not only help people in difficulty meet basic needs but that also support these individuals so that they can fully contribute to society,” said Lili-Anna Pereša, President and Executive Director of Centraide of Greater Montreal.
Centraide's 2018 campaign will officially launch on October 4 during Centraide's March of 1,000 Umbrellas, which will follow a new route through downtown Montreal this year.
