The Normand Brie Foundation provides financial support to individuals facing obstacles to success; students with disabilities residing in Quebec can apply.
Deadline: open at all times
The Foundation was created by Normand Brie, founder of Normandin Restaurants, to support people who are motivated to achieve their goals, but who are facing an obstacle. A personal initiative inspired by values of solidarity, the Foundation acts as a generous and well-informed member of the family. Thus, help is offered to contribute to a concrete solution.
The Normand Brie Foundation provides individuals who face an obstacle in their lives with the tools they need to overcome it, as part of a personal initiative already undertaken.
This Foundation also helps to promote EDUCATION by:
- paying the cost of the services of a professional counselor and technical training leading to a trade to anyone who has not completed secondary V;
- providing financial assistance to pay school and living expenses for people on low incomes;
- offering scholarships to people demonstrating exceptional qualities of leader and entrepreneur.
There are two major points to remember here.
- First, an obstacle is a problematic situation that the person can solve with the help of the Foundation.
- Second, the support provided by the Foundation achieves a goal that the person has already identified.
An application may be made for anyone residing in Quebec.
The help provided by the Foundation is logistical in that it covers the costs of providing a person with the means to overcome an obstacle.
The Foundation helps promote HEALTH by providing financial support to anyone:
- disabled or ill in the form of medical diagnostic services, medical care, supplies or equipment;
- addicted to alcohol, drugs, and gambling by defraying the costs of a treatment program;
- suffering from psychological problems diagnosed.
