How to Donate?

The Montreal General Hospital Foundation has been the recipient of extraordinary community support over many decades, allowing us purchase new equipment, to finance research and to support multiple projects aiming at improving patient care.

We provide many innovative and accessible ways for our donors to contribute to these medical and scientific developments. Most are listed below, but we are also open to other methods of donation. If you would like to discuss with a member of our team, please contact us directly at . To learn more about your accomplishments through your generous donations in the past, please visit our Vital care section.

Governor Program

Governors represent our most committed donors. With their donation of $250 or more annually, they play a critical role in helping the Hospital meet its priority needs for equipment, research and special programs. As a Governor, you will receive exclusive invites to events at the MGH and you will be recognized in our membership booklet that is distributed annually. To learn more about the Governor’s Circle, please click here.

Ways to donate

Annual Giving
Annual donations are the cornerstone of our fundraising program and they support excellence in patient care, teaching and research on an ongoing basis. We are immensely grateful to all our annual donors, many of whom choose to increase their donation each year.  

Monthly donations
Monthly donations are increasingly popular with our donors for several reasons: smaller monthly amounts are easier to integrate into a budget, they are flexible, and they are also pre-programmed, which means you don’t have to fill out multiple donation forms!

Tribute Gifts
Memorial donations serve as a wonderful tribute to a beloved family member, colleague or friend. These gifts provide tangible benefits to patient services throughout the Hospital. Gifts may also be made in honour of birthdays, anniversaries, special holidays, graduations, employment milestones and other accomplishments, or in appreciation. Some of our donors have chosen to make special donations in honour of their weddings.

Estate Planning/Bequests
Many donors have graciously decided to include the MGH in their will by making either a specific bequest or designating the gift of a percentage of their estate. Your financial advisor can help you make these gifts as tax effective as possible.
It should be noted that we welcome the gift of publicly traded securities and life insurance. This method of donation can be attractive from a tax perspective.

•Giving back to the health care community through a major gift
