The Ultramar Foundation’s mission is to bring financial support to organizations that benefit children in communities served by its network in Quebec, Ontario and the Maritime provinces.
The donations made by the Foundation allow local organizations to take concrete actions for the well-being of the children in our communities.
“La Grande Ruée” has been the main event to financially back the organisms supported by the Foundation to date. Building on the success of these events, and particularly eager to continue its work, the Foundation has decided, after two years of inactivity due to the pandemic, to relaunch its main fundraising event by giving it a new heading: Day of solidarity for children. The Ultramar Foundation’s Day of Solidarity will take place on Saturday, September 10th 2022. Under the theme “Everyone on the quayside”, a reference to the Montreal Clocktower Quay where the festive event will take place, the site for the Day of Solidarity for Children will propose various animations and games for children as well as adults.
The partnership with Air-Serv, which manages the Parkland/Ultramar air pump network, raised more than $200,000 in 2021.
Since its creation in 2013, The Ultramar Foundation has distributed close to $2,500,000 to organisms dedicated to children’s causes. If you want to learn more about the Foundation, its work or if you’d like to submit an request for donation, please visit our website.
