Mission Statement

The trustees of the Alexandra MM Gagnon Foundation have chosen as its primary focus to support the treatment and prevention of substance abuse and to fund scientific research into its causes and its cures, particularly as it pertains to young people. The Foundation will not limit its support to any given geographic area but will usually focus its attention in the communities with which Alex identified and to the institutions which gave her help and solace.
