The Christian Vachon Foundation recently announced its new partnership with the Caisse Desjardins. While the foundation has been supported by the Caisse Desjardins du Lac-Memphrémagog for over a decade, they were one of the foundation’s first partners, this new partnership includes the support of all the Caisse Desjardins in the Estrie. Founded 14 years ago by Christian Vachon, the foundation plays a significant role in our region by providing support to the community’s underprivileged youth. The foundation is now entering a new era with this major partnership that will help them to continue to carry out their work helping young people in need. For those who may not be familiar with the foundation, it is a private foundation that was created by Christian Vachon in 2006. He wanted to help children in the local community who came from vulnerable backgrounds by providing them with basic needs such as clothing and food and contributing towards their education and extracurricular activities in the form of school supplies, notebooks, and cultural and sports activities.
