“Pour 3 Points seeks to bring about concrete, significant social impact. With this objective in mind, we formed a partnership with the McGill Sport Psychology Research Laboratory to perform an independent assessment of our program. As of right now, the analysis of our initial results is still incomplete, and the jury is out as to what impact our organization has, beyond anecdotal evidence. Nevertheless, the McConnell Foundation believed in us, recognizing that it is not viable to invest in social innovation while demanding, at the same time, the proven fruits of said innovation. Innovation is inherently new, and untested.”
