Projects that are central to Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation’s mission
For over 15 years, the Foundation and National Bank have been building a close partnership, driven by their common goal to support the many people affected by the disease directly or indirectly. With a strong desire to contribute to the health and growth of women while proudly displaying its close partnership with our organization, this major financial institution has invested nearly $7 million in the cause to date!
As the Covid-19 pandemic shook the planet, the Foundation and the NBC actively worked together to ensure that the bank’s financial commitment was in line with the needs of our community.
The funds invested in 2020–2021 have supported various initiatives, such as:
- The 1 Million to Help competition, which funds research and support project
- The Breast Health Forum, which was held virtually in October 2020
- The financial assistance program
- The Innovation and Community Support Award ($25,000 grant)
Help those affected with the Allure® | MasterCard® credit card
In February 2020, National Bank and the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation announced their continued collaboration to keep supporting those affected by the disease. For every $10 of purchases made with the credit card, National Bank will donate $0.10 to the Foundation, up to an amount of $750,000 per year. In total, up to $3 million could be donated in the coming years.
The financial institution also invites its credit card holders to get involved by converting their Loyalty Program Rewards into donations. In the last fiscal year, $13,600 was donated by the NBC’s generous credit card holders.
