Matching Gift Program 2024

The Cloutier-Riendeau Matching Gift Program

Philanthropie Estrie recently launched the Cloutier-Riendeau Matching Gift program. The announcement was made during the 20th anniversary celebration evening. The program seeks to encourage charitable organizations in the Eastern Townships as well as their donors to create an endowment fund (“fonds de dotation”), or contribute to one. Thanks to this generous offer from the family, when you create an endowment fund with Philanthropie Estrie (“fonds de dotation”), we will match each of your invested dollars up to $50,000 per fund. Your donation will therefore be doubled, creating a significant impact on your particular community, regardless of its mission. The donor selects an organization that he or she holds dearly and gives to its particular endowment fund, a gift that is permanent. This program was set-up in memory of the substantial gift made by the Cloutier-Riendeau family to Philanthropie Estrie in 2023.

This program is aimed at creating sustainable advantages for the community across a wide sector of activities.
