Campaigns and events

Signature events

The signature events organized by the Foundation remain essential to ensure the sustainability of Le Chaînon’s shelter and assistance services.

Thanks to the funds raised during fundraising activities, hundreds of homeless and vulnerable women can, year-round, be welcomed in a safe and non-judgmental environment, thus promoting their return to autonomy and self-esteem.

  • 2019

    Le Chaînon sportif

    Organized by the Emerging Leaders Circle*, Le Chaînon Sportif is a fundraising activity initiated in 2019 that aims to raise awareness of the cause of women in difficulty among the Greater Montréal area's business community. This unifying event, powered by a participatory virtual fundraising platform, invites people to get moving during a private workout performed by a professional fitness center, partner of the event.

    *Created in 2017 by Le Chaînon Foundation, the Emerging Leaders Circle brings together young professionals who wish to use their expertise and network to raise awareness of Le Chaînon's mission in the Montréal community.

  • Evenement-Bal-annuel

    Le Bal du Chaînon

    Le Bal du Chaînon is the largest fundraising event of Le Chaînon Foundation. Since its first edition in 2014, this event has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars each year. Thanks to the collaboration of a committed honorary committee, it allows us to reach a network of business people and citizens concerned by Le Chaînon's mission.

    Until 2019, this annual event took the form of a gala dinner gathering close to 500 guests in an exceptional location, and presenting musical and humorous performances by artists from the Quebec scene.

    In 2020, with the arrival of COVID-19, the event was completely reinvented to meet public health regulations. The traditional gala was transformed into the "Ball en mou", a virtual event where guests could participate in the fundraising celebrations from the comfort of their own homes. Highly talented artists shared the virtual stage, offering the public and the women of Le Chaînon an entertaining and emotional evening.

    Due to its success, the "Ball en mou" has been renewed for a second edition in 2021.

  • Evenement-Reluxe


    RELUXE was born in 2015 thanks to the initiative of Chantal Durivage, Ody Giroux and Isabelle Éthier, women who are committed to the environment. Focused on eco-responsible consumption, the RELUXE event raises funds for the Le Chaînon Foundation by offering, to fashion lovers, second hand designer clothes and accessories at unbeatable prices.

    RELUXE was first held in a luxurious downtown hotel, over two days. In 2020 and 2021, the event was transformed into a month-long "Espace RELUXE" at Le Chaînon store, offering a great outreach to the Montréal community. The effervescence around RELUXE and the visibility offered by the store in 2021 allowed us to reach a record level of funds raised, $56,000.

   The fundraising campaign

The fundraising campaign soliciting our entire donor community is the major source of revenue of la Fondation.

Each year, a postal appeal for donations raises approximately $450,000, thanks to the generosity of our loyal contributors who actively participate in the sustainability of Le Chaînon.

   Digital campaign

Every International Women’s Rights Day (March 8th), a digital campaign allows us to raise around $30,000 on a yearly basis.

All actions undertaken by Le Chaînon and la Fondation Le Chaînon seek to promote social justice and the recognition and valorization of women’s potential. Thus, it is important to highlight this day which recognizes the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and girls on an international scale.

Make a donation

By supporting the mission of women in difficulty, you allow Le Chaînon to help and accompany hundreds of women, each year, towards autonomy and the recovery of power over their lives.
