The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation



Our mission is to inspire and mobilize the community to support relentless innovation in clinical care, research and teaching at the Montreal Children’s Hospital, an internationally-renowned pediatric centre affiliated with the McGill University Health Centre providing highly-specialized healthcare.

For a limited time, we offer a unique opportunity to help more patients at the Montreal Children’s Hospital and cultivate a lasting impact, both now and for the future. When you confirm a legacy gift to the Foundation during this period, 20% of the value of your future estate gift will be matched with a donation today from other generous donors. This matching contribution will be designated to one of the six urgent priorities of your choosing. Curious to learn more?   The Children’s Legacy Challenge

Our Impact

Our vision is to transform healthcare so that every sick child has the opportunity to reach their full potential, both today and in the future. Loïc, a patient living at the Children’s who has just graduated high school, is one shining example of a success story at the hospital, for which we are most proud : < who completed his secondary education from a hospital room to receive Quebec’s Medal of the National Assembly>

We are donor-centered and respectful, and our core values of integrity and teamwork ensure that we work with donors to meet the needs of young patients and families in meaningful ways.

In addition to helping the Children’s find unexpected ways to heal, the Foundation has a strong Planned Giving team with the expertise to assist donors wishing to leave a legacy gift for the future.

How your gift will be used

Your gift could help in so many ways. It could provide financial assistance to patient families during their time of crisis, soothe a young child’s anxiety through music therapy, or provide state-of-the-art care for one of our tiniest, most fragile patients in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. It may fund lectureships that bring world experts to the Children’s, or research in areas such as genetics, cancer and rare diseases. Your gift in a will could make a significant difference in the lives of sick children in the future, helping them not only survive but thrive.

We invite you to read two testimonials from parents who have chosen to make an estate gift to help the Children’s offer specialized care to young patients and their families for years to come:˂ Katrin Nakashima, mother of Justin & Jordan ˃ and ˂ Cara Cameron & Christopher Richter, mother & father of Imogen & Eleanor ˃
