Since 2008, the Foundation of Stars has been using the funds it raises to support worthy research projects.
In fact, the Foundation of Stars supports a number of these projects in conjunction with Québec’s 4 major research centres as well as the Fonds de recherche du Québec - Santé (FRQS), all with the goal of helping our children grow up healthy! The graph below depicts the types of research projects (183 in total) that have benefited from our support since 2008. Overall, these projects were also made possible by the implication of a vast number of researchers and students from a variety of research centres.
