Major Donors since 2011

Co-Chair of the 2012 Centraide Campaign, organizing committee member of the first Centraide Cup held in collaboration with the Montreal Impact, and benefactor of the Marie-Clarac Hospital Palliative Care Pavilion, Lino A. Saputo, Jr. along with his wife Amelia and their children, are deeply committed to local community involvement. In fact, in 2011, this commitment was the driving force behind their creation of the Amelia and Lino Saputo Jr. Foundation, presided by Mrs. Saputo. She also sits on the Lower Canada College Board of Governors.

“Having witnessed firsthand how rigorous the allocation process is during board meetings, I came to the realization that Centraide had already identified the soundest community agencies and projects in which to invest. Because its strategic vision is perfectly aligned with our own, the donations we make through our Foundation can go further, as Centraide has identified the community’s true needs beforehand. Take Projet 80, for example: it is exactly the type of youth agency Amelia and I had in mind when we created our Foundation.”
