About Fondation Charles-Bruneau:

Established in 1990 by a group of parents and friends of children with cancer, Fondation Charles-Bruneau raises funds for four pediatric oncology centres and units across Québec: Centre de cancérologie Charles-Bruneau at CHU Sainte-Justine, Charles-Bruneau Hematology-Oncology Day Treatment Centre at Montreal Children’s Hospital, and Unités d'oncologie pédiatrique Charles-Bruneau at both CHU Sherbrooke and CHU de Québec. The foundation’s overall mission is to give all children with cancer the best chances of recovery by financing research and supporting the development of projects in pediatric oncology.

In F2016, 35% of grants were allocated to construction, development and equipment, 35% to research platforms, 25% to research programs, and 5% to complementary therapies like art and music therapy. Since 1990, the foundation has granted more than $50m to pediatric oncology in Québec: $10m to research and $40m to construction, planning and equipment.
