GDG in the community
At GDG, we strongly believe in corporate social responsibility. Businesses have a duty to support their communities and help keep them healthy. Since 2007, GDG has been involved in social and environmental causes. Our commitment manifests itself in various ways, including concrete actions and community benefits.
Founded in 2009, the GDG Foundation’s mission is Générer des Dividendes de Générosité (to Generate Generosity Dividends). Its main goals are to raise funds for charitable organizations and to participate in meaningful environmental projects.
GDG foundation projects and activities
GDG provides Lauberivière with technical IT support and co-funds le Réchaud de Lauberivière on an annual basis with the City of Québec, giving homeless people a place to warm up and grab a bite.
Gaetan’s annual hiking fundraiser
Every year since 2011, our president has hiked across one of Quebec’s regions to raise funds for organizations and causes close to his heart. Gaetan doubles the total amount donated by others and gives it all to charity.
GDG supports amateur athletes and the arts
GDG occasionally sponsors sports teams and athletes. GDG’s philosophy is to look beyond competitive performance and visibility to reward positive attitudes, perseverance, and determination.
GDG also supports local talent by hiring artists in a variety of disciplines for corporate events. The company has also provided financial support for a number of independent artistic projects.
GDG: An environmentally friendly company
GDG goes the extra mile to implement eco-friendly organizational processes for its events and buys local wherever possible.
