Organize a fundraiser
Raise money to support the CHUM Foundation
Want to support the mission of the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal Foundation in your own way? You might raise funds from your friends and family or as part of a wider event. Either way, you’re joining the CHUM Foundation family and making a real contribution to the ongoing research the CHUM teams are doing. That way, they can deliver better care to our patients, today and tomorrow.

A few fundraiser ideas to get you started
Let your imagination fly free! You can help build a healthier future with a project that plays to your strengths and interests.
An athletic challenge
Are you good at a particular sport, or do you just like the idea of getting moving for the cause? You could put together a volleyball tournament, a soccer (or hockey or baseball) match, a run in a park, a skiing day or a mountain hike.
Rally your team
Want to rally your company’s employees for the cause? Want to show up for your community with a company event? You might organize a theme day (jeans day, casual day, etc.), a pizza lunch, a coffee or bake sale, a golf tournament or a theme evening.
Raise money online
You could celebrate your birthday, a marriage, a birth in the family, etc., thank your care team, or make a gift in memory of a loved one. Gifts for a special life event are an easy and eco-friendly way to show your support.
Sell things you’ve made
Are you good with your hands, a fabulous cook, or just the best lemonade-maker in town? Put your talents to work for the CHUM! You might organize a sale of clothing, handicrafts, jewelry, baked goods, etc. The sky is the limit!
Raise the bid at an auction
Have you always dreamed of hosting an auction where the bidding is fierce? How about sniffing out the most interesting hidden treasures in a silent auction? It’s a great way to raise money! You could auction off furniture, trips, works of art, great wines, signed or designer items, event tickets, gift certificates, etc.
Launch a something-a-thon
Love endurance contests? You could put together a bowl-a-thon, dance-a-thon, swim-a-thon, etc. These charity events are accessible and easy to explain, and they’re playful and fun for your whole community (school, company, association, etc.).
Organize a charity benefit evening
Do you love making a splash? Why not organize a charity benefit evening with a show (dance, music, magic), a themed party, a wine and cheese reception, a gala, a ball or a fashion show?
In your community

In April 2012, Ginette Dufresne was diagnosed with appendiceal cancer. Ten years later, thanks to the excellent care she received from the CHUM’s care teams, she’s overjoyed to be in full remission. To thank the teams that saved her life, Ginette wants to contribute to cancer research by supporting the Foundation. Her plan: raise money by selling macramé items that she’s crafted over the past year.
Date: April 26, 2022, to June 8, 2022
