2017-2018 Contributions to the CHUM
By listening to the needs expressed by the CHUM, the Fondation is able to respond to the immediate and urgent requirements of the patients. Every year, the CHUM presents the Fondation with a list of priorities that is established with the help and consultation of the heads of each department.
Your donations therefore make a real difference for the patients. They provide the chance to benefit from the best possible care. Your generosity supports new and exciting quality projects.
These are some examples of accomplishments made possible by your donations throughout the years!
Health care, Research and Education
All donations are directed toward the acquisition of cutting-edge technology, research, education and the promotion of health, which means that donors are directly contributing to the wellbeing of the patients of the CHUM.

In 2001, the Fondation committed to providing financial support for research chairs and teaching at the University of Montreal until 2020. Since 2012, over $7M have been donated for the creation of 17 research chairs.
This investment makes the Fondation one of the University’s biggest donors. These chairs are dedicated to research and education in a variety of disciplines that include orthopaedics, osteoarthritis, breast cancer, hepatology and family medicine. The Fondation also funds specific research projects, especially those concerned with liver diseases.
Finally, every year, the Fondation donates a sum of 1,5 million dollars to the CHUM Research Centre (CRCHUM), in order to support its mission of clinical, basic, epidemiological and evaluative research. This amount also helps in the recruitment of senior researchers, which encourages promising young professionals to stay and succeed.
Training the next generation
The Fondation, in collaboration with the CHUM and the Council of Physicians, Dentists and Pharmacists (CPDP), invests nearly one million dollars in fellowships every year.
These are given to the CHUM’s young professionals who wish to improve their training outside of Quebec or to foreign doctors and researchers who wish to hone their skills at the CHUM. Because it attracts some of the best doctors in the world, this competition helps the hospital shine.
Moreover, this program fulfills the hospital’s mission to provide super-specialized healthcare services by encouraging the training of high-level specialists and by attracting doctors and keeping them at the CHUM.
Every year, the Fondation du CHUM publishes an activity report as a way to show recognition for the efforts made by those who have contributed to the improvement of the care given to patients.
