The Fonds Laurent McCutcheon

To reach full social recognition for LGBT realities

The Fonds Laurent McCutcheon aims to support the activities of nonprofits working towards the well-being of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) communities. Mr. McCutcheon, who passed away in 2019, was an exceptional activist, having given four decades of his life to defend the interests, the rights, and most importantly the dignity of LGBT communities.

The Foundation of Greater Montréal was honored by his trust when, en 2014, he decided to create the Fonds Laurent McCutcheon fund at FGM. This fund is open to any person or organization wishing to support LGBT communities, most notably in their quest for legal and social equality. It also takes an interest in all issues related to sexual diversity, sexual orientation and gender identity. This cause motivated Mr. McCutcheon throughout his life, and so he wished to create a permanent philanthropic vehicle to support it. We are proud to have been his partners in that process.

In his own words: « After more than 35 years of activism on behalf of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LBGT) communities, and after having left my positions of authority, I had the idea to create a permanent tool, geared towards the future, in order to support our communities. »
