Fund and Project Specific Gifts

We have created special funds that are dedicated to a specific purpose. Here are some causes you may choose donate to:

Haiti Assistance Fund

Haiti is particularly vulnerable to natural disasters. In addition, poverty, climate change, and socio-economic inequalities place the population at even greater risk.

The Haiti Assistance Fund, which was created following the devastating earthquake of 2010, allows the Foundation to support local organisations working with the most vulnerable in isolated regions following a disaster.

In the past, this fund contributed to 30 reconstruction projects that totalled more than $4 million in response to the 2010 earthquake. Projects included rebuilding infrastructure, relaunching health and education services, as well as agricultural and revenue-generating activities and providing access to clean water.

In response to Hurricane Matthew, the Foundation supported 29 projects worth more than $1.7 million, and most recently, the fund helped meet the essential needs of communities as they faced the COVID-19 pandemic with initiatives to prevent and mitigate its negative impacts.

On August 14th, 2021, the country was once again struck by a massive earthquake measuring 7.2 on the Richter scale that caused severe damage. You can show your compassion and solidarity with the Haitian population and their efforts to recover from this disaster.

Your donation will concretely improve the living conditions of those most affected by present and future disasters.

Give now to our Haiti Assistance Fund!

Missi-Sagesse Fund

The Congregation of the Daughters of Wisdom, remaining true to its founders, Saint Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort and the Blessed Marie-Louise de Jésus, continues to be involved in missions that help the poorest people in several countries: Argentina, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ecuador, Haiti, India, Indonesia, Madagascar, Malawi, Papua New Guinea, Peru and the Philippines. Sister Jeannelle Daigle, DW and many other sisters in her order have done remarkable work through the Fonds Missi-Sagesse.

In 2015, this Fund was entrusted to the Roncalli International Foundation, which will continue the work of the Daughters of Wisdom on their behalf.

Committee of Support for the Work of Rachel Vinet

Sister Rachel Vinet dedicated her life to the others. Motivated by the poverty in the disadvantaged districts, she decides to join the Institut Notre-Dame du Bon-Conseil and to dedicate herself in helping to improve the living conditions of families, in particular single mothers by. More than 25 years ago, she went to Haiti and created the Center "Sant Sosyal Lakonbit" which helps women, the youth and the children. Sister Rachel is well known and much appreciated in Haiti. The center became a reference in the area concerning women and youth and several organisations often come to understand their methods and collect ideas to reach the same level of success.

Following hurricane Matthew on October 4th, the center is working  to help the population. Your precious donation would allow them keep helping the women, the youth and the children in need.

The committee is dedicated to help this center regarding the afermath of the hurricane Matthew but it also plans to make several activities of this kind to help the work of Rachel Vinet.

Donate for the work of Rachel Vinet!

Planned Gifts

The Roncalli International Foundation has been a member of Leave a LegacyTMQuébec program for many years now. It is the provincial wing of the Canadian Leave a LegacyTM program. Implemented by the Canadian Association of Gifts Planners (CAGP), throughout their chapters across Canada, it brings together donors, charitable organizations and professional advisors.

This program is a public awareness program designed to encourage individuals to leave a gift through their will or any other gift planning instrument to a charity or non-profit organization of their choice. The program puts forward the importance of thoughtful, well-planned, tax-preferred gifts and their impact on the quality of life for everyone in our communities.

When you give a planned gift, you are actively contributing to improving living conditions in the developing world. 
Planned gifts have tangible and sustainable benefits. They represent your dedication to our Foundation for many years to come. 



In Memoriam Donation

An In Memoriam gift is a donation in the memory of a loved one that shows sympathy towards their friends and family, supports a cause that they cared about and represents a meaningful gesture that will help the poorest people in developing countries.
