SGF receives an Entraide Campaign award for the second straight year

SGF receives another Philanthrope award for the amount donated by employee

Montréal, February 27, 2008 — The employees of Société générale de financement du Québec (SGF) have received a Philanthrope award for the second straight year in recognition of their generosity during the Entraide 2007 campaign. This annual fund-raising campaign for Québec-government employees raises funds for Centraide/United Way, Partenairesanté-Québec and the Québec Division of the Canadian Red Cross.

The Entraide awards are presented to the organizations with the highest donations per employee. SGF received the highest distinction, a Philanthrope, in the category of organizations with fewer than 200 employees. The Philanthrope trophy presented to SGF recognizes excellence in the volunteer activities carried out by its employees.

SGF’s Entraide 2007 campaign took place from October 22 to 26, inclusive. SGF employees organized and took part in various activities all week long. In addition to the annual donation, initiatives such as an exhibit of photographs taken by employees, the sale of a calendar featuring the winning photos, the sale of home-made desserts and a pasta lunch sponsored by the Hôtel Intercontinental Montréal enabled SGF to donate a total of $90,822 to the Entraide 2006 campaign.

For more information on the campaign, consult the official Entraide 2007 website:

Société générale de financement du Québec (sgfqc.com), an industrial and financial holding company, has a mission to carry out economic development projects, with emphasis on the industrial sector, in co-operation with partners and on standard profitability conditions, in accordance with the economic development policy of the Québec government.
