We are proud to be giving back to the community! 

The Coureurs des bois Challenge is proud to support local organizations that are offering a project that promotes physical activity and healthy eating, puts forward the preservation of the environment, and helps discover the richness of the cultural and natural heritage of the region.

Thanks to the success of its last edition, the Challenge is pleased to be able to give approximately $27,000 this year. 

However, due to the current situation caused by the pandemic, the Challenge decided to postpone the deadline for submitting applications. More details will be available on our website and Facebook page when the situation is restored. 

Non-profit organizations wishing to receive a donation for a project related to the objectives of the Challenge must complete the donation request available on this page. 

Before completing the donation request form, make sure that: 

  • you are a non-profit organization,
  • your head office is in Prescott-Russell,
  • your activity serves the population of Prescott-Russell,
  • your activity reaches more than one person,
  • your activity is in line with the objectives of the Coureurs des bois Challenge, and
  • that your activity will take place before April 30, 2021. 

Not-for-profit organizations wishing to receive a donation for a project to be held before April 30th, 2021 and that is in line with the objectives of the Challenge, must complete the donation request form available on this page. The deadline to submit an application is April 15, 2020. 

Organizations and programs not eligible for donations from the Coureurs des bois Challenge: 

  • Programs relating to the regular activities of religious, political, academic or institutional groups, hospital, school committees, pastoral councils, beneficiary committees, etc. 

Submitting a donation request form, even if it meets all the criterias, does not guarantee that your organization will receive a donation. Although we would like to be able to help every organization, it just isn’t possible. 

We would like to thank our sponsors, all of the participants and our many volunteers who made this possible!
