A diversified financial group with international operations
Optimum's commitment to community
Optimum Group's solid foundations are also anchored in our support for social causes and our contributions to the advancement of social issues. For our company, these charitable actions are essential.
Partners of the Fondation Dr Julien
These past few years, the Optimum Group has been increasingly concerned with its social commitment. This is why in 2013, Optimum has become a partner of the Fondation Dr Julien (FDJ). It is with great pride that we support the FDJ's Mission to help vulnerable children to develop their full potential, according to the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The FDJ is also a leader in the development of Community Social Pediatrics on the local, national and international levels.
For a fourth year, Optimum Group is holding a fund raising campaign this fall, to support the Fondation Dr Julien (FDJ). Once again, we hope that employee donations, fully matched by a corporate donation, will exceed our fundraising goals!
In addition, we are fortunate to have the support of business partners who generously offer prizes that contribute to fundraising activities and we sincerely thank themfor their help.
"We are grateful that the Optimum Group, a family business with values similar to our own, has decided to get involved with society's most vulnerable children. Their support will enable us to develop our services even more and better support families toward their well-being. We are hoping that this relationship with the Optimum Group will continue and grow with time" stated Dr. Gilles Julien, Founder and President of the Fondation Dr Julien.
A collaborative vision
To give further impetus to its contribution, Optimum Group encourages employees who wish to collaborate in a personal way, to join the team of volunteers from some activities organized by the FDJ. Our group is proud to rely on the vitality and generosity of its great team to participate in projects set up by the FDJ. We also firmly believe that leveraging our resources is an opportunity to forge ever stronger links between our team and the Fondation Dr Julien.
