Mission

The Cole Foundation was created in 1980 by John N. (Jack) Cole as a private initiative in Montreal to promote research and child care in the area of pediatric oncology and hematology, in particular, leukemia, as well as to support other non-medical Montreal community causes.

 

Research Programs

In 2007, the Cole Foundation established a two year fellowship programme offering grants to clinical, postdoctoral and graduate student scientists dedicated to research in pediatric and young adult leukemia and lymphomas. Since that time, over $6 million has been committed to more than 115 researchers in Greater Montreal laboratories, hospitals and universities.  In addition to the fellowship programme, the Cole Foundation also supports the Quebec Leukemia Cell Bank.

 

Intercultural Conversations

Montreal is a multicultural city welcoming people of all ethnic origins.  The Cole Foundation wants Montrealers to have a greater awareness of the voices and stories from and about its diverse cultures and communities.  Dialogue among these various cultural communities is one way of bringing them together.  Theatre has the ability of fostering this intercultural dialogue through the presentation of stories of other cultures on stage.  The Cole Foundation runs an annual theatre competition to support plays that explore these important issues.
