The mission of the Montreal Impact Foundation is to organize and support activities to advance education and improve the quality of life of impoverished children and their families. The Foundation’s logo was created with its mission in mind: the child-like writing represents the reason for its existence—the children—while the heart symbolizes the energy and love needed to give them hope.
