This unprecedented philanthropic effort aims to sustain the renown of the current CHUM while also supporting the development of the new CHUM. By funding the purchase of cutting-edge technology and supporting continued research, education and health promotion efforts, it will provide the CHUM with the resources essential for the continuous improvement of patient care.
This major fundraising campaign calls on the entire community. It invites all donors, whether they are corporations, foundations or individuals, to support this project that will benefit all of Quebec’s population. With the support of people who care, more than 60% of the $300M goal has already been reached.
The funds raised by the Fondation du CHUM over the duration of this campaign will directly contribute to the wellbeing of patients. In addition, the donations reinforce the attractiveness of our healthcare centre by allowing talented doctors from around the world to join us through the creation of research chairs and the distribution of scholarship awards.
Empowered by the many commitments they’ve obtained since the beginning of this campaign, by the support of the precious donors and partners of the Fondation du CHUM, and by a community that is more active than ever, the Cabinet members for the Fondation du CHUM’s campaign are confident that they will reach their goal.
By supporting the Fondation du CHUM with a collective or individual donation, whether it is big or small, you are directly helping our hospital centre’s patients.
How will the funds be spent?

The majority of the collected funds will be dedicated to healthcare services. More precisely, they will be spent to buy cutting-edge technology to support the major clinical strategies of the CHUM:

It is important to note that none of the funds donated towards this fundraising campaign will be spent in the construction of the new CHUM.
A few words about the joint campaign CHUM-CUSM
The Fondation du CHUM and the McGill University Health Centre Foundation have partnered together in order to solicit the largest companies in Quebec and to equally share the funds collected. With the goal of helping each centre to raise a sum of $300M, this campaign will help modernize the teaching hospitals of Montreal. The joint solicitations aim to collect a sum of $150M, of which $75M will be given to each hospital centre.
This initiative reflects a commitment that each of these hospitals shares towards a goal that is much more important than their individual ambitions: the revitalization of the healthcare system in Quebec for current and future generations.
