BPR announces the organizations selected for its "$50,000 in grants for its 50th birthday" program

MONTREAL, June 10, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The members of the selection committee for BPR's "$50,000 in grants for its 50th birthday" program have made the selection of projects to be retained, from among the more than 60 excellent projects whose goal is to foster educational success, submitted by Québec not-for-profit organizations in the education sector.

The organizations named are the Fondation Psycho-Pédagogique de Québec, La Relance Jeunes et Familles du secteur Centre Sud de Montréal, the Fondation de l'École Paul-Hubert de Rimouski, the Carrefour des enfants de St-Malo de Québec and the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, affiliated with McGill University. Each of these organizations will receive a $10,000 grant to carry out the project submitted.

Selection committee member and BPR president Pierre Lavallée was pleasantly surprised by the number of candidates submitted and, more specifically, by the quality of the projects. "What a nice surprise: when the submission period ended on May 1st, which was BPR's 50th birthday, no fewer than sixty organizations had submitted a project for consideration in this program. As far as we're concerned, all the organizations are winners…but we had to choose," said Mr. Lavallée.

The "$50,000 in grants for its 50th birthday" program was part of the BPR's celebration of its 50th birthday.
