Donations and sponsorships

Proud to be involved
in the community

Through its donation and sponsorship program, the SAQ contributes to the economic and social vitality of regions throughout Quebec by investing more than $5 million annually in 250 organisations and events connected to the major issues of our society.

General criteria to submit a request

Three types of sponsorships

Event

The SAQ is involved in a myriad of events across the province, from major metropolitan festivals to the regional wine fairs.

Social

Through social sponsorship, the SAQ offers its support to several organizations in health, culture, education and humanitarian aid.

Sustainable development

The SAQ raises a glass to a healthy planet by supporting innovative projects giving a second life to glass, as well as projects promoting local economy.

General criteria to submit a request

In order to be eligible for a donation or sponsorship, the organization or event must meet all the criteria and requirements associated with the areas of intervention designated in the Politique des dons et des commandites (in French only). The SAQ does not support the following: Commercial development corporations (SDC), health organizations whose primary mission is not research or treatment, including support organizations, neighbourhood parties or anniversaries of a city or borough, sports associations, personal events (e.g., weddings, Christmas dinners, etc.), etc.*

Each application is analyzed according to the SAQ's business priorities and allocated budgets. Thus, even if an organization or event meets all the criteria, it does not commit the SAQ to grant it a donation or sponsorship. Similarly, a contribution to an organization in a given sector does not necessarily commit the SAQ to supporting all organizations operating in the same sector.
