Richelieu-International Foundation

Born from the will and the determination of Richelieu International to acquire more efficient means to help youth, the Richelieu International Foundation was created on August 30th 1977 in Ottawa. Its motto is: UNITE TO HELP.

The Richelieu-International Foundation is the manifestation of the great generosity of Richelieu members. It confirms the presence of the Richelieu movement on the international scene, its openness to the French-speaking world and the influence of its clubs.

Its mission

The Fondation Richelieu-International is a charitable organization whose mission is to support humanitarian, cultural and social actions that favour the youth of the French-speaking world.

The Fondation Richelieu-International does not initiate or engage itself in humanitarian, social and cultural projects; it supports them.

Its mission is not limited to raising funds as stated in the current statement; it manages them, it generates them through its investments, it can establish partnerships, guarantee loans, etc.

Its values

The main values promoted by the Foundation are:

  • integrity
  • compassion and sharing
  • peace and fraternity

Its strategic orientations

The Richelieu International Foundation's donation policy was developed to ensure that the recipient organizations respect its values and priorities. It also allows organizations to benefit from a transparent process for the attribution of donations.

  • School perserverance
  • Physical health by supporting programs that promote physical activity among young people
