2016 campaign

Public Campain 2016

Listen to Pascale Bussières :

Dear friends and supporters

Last September, many of you attended ‘’Une soirée empreinte d’art’’, the cocktail-fundraiser for the Jacques Bouchard Foundation, held at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. Your support meant that $250,000 was raised; monies that will assist more than 300 people at the end of their lives.

This year, instead of an event, during September we are holding a public finance campaign. Our goal is not only to raise another $250,000, but to increase the awareness of the Foundation.

Sadly we have all known someone who would have chosen end one’s days with loved ones in a known, comforting space. Palliative care at home allows the patient to live last moments surrounded by loved ones.

This is the mission of the Foundation : To allow us to accompany those we love on their last journey, offering dignity, respect and comfort.

In fact, this is why I created the Foundation in memory of my husband, who passed away in 2006.

In reality, we are all in this together.

Thank you for being there for us. Thank you for being there for them. Give generously!
