About Foundation of Greater Montréal
Our cause is Montreal!
The Foundation of Greater Montreal acts at the heart of our community. With more than 20 years of experience working with and for all causes across the region, we have our finger on the pulse of the needs of our communities. FGM is ready to leverage this knowledge to help bring your philanthropic vision to life – even after you’re gone.
From environment, to poverty, to culture – FGM’s mission cuts across all areas of need in our community.
Through one gift in Will to FGM today, you can have a long term impact for all the causes that are close to your heart.
How your gift will be used
- By leaving your bequest to a community foundation, you are assured that your gift’s purpose will be matched with the most pressing needs of the day, today but also tomorrow.
- It wouldn’t be possible for you to personally vet all 5,000 non-profits in the Greater Montreal area. Entrusting FGM with managing your donation ensures that it will have the greatest impact on the development and the well-being of your community.
- You can be as specific or flexible as you wish in your instructions – providing general areas of support or individual non-profit organizations. These instructions can also be easily modified during your lifetime, without having to revise your entire Will.
- FGM is forever. You can choose to create a permanent fund which will support the causes you care about in perpetuity – or a short-term fund to provide immediate funding in your name. The choice is yours but either way, the FGM will be there to translate your vision into action.
- If you are creating a Donor Advised Fund through your Will, the gift can be structured in detail in advance, with an advisory committee composed of trusted friends and family members who will help bring your philanthropic legacy to life.
