Finding unexpected ways to heal.
Our mission is to inspire and mobilize the community to support relentless innovation in research, teaching and care at the Montreal Children’s Hospital, an internationally-renowned paediatric center affiliated with the McGill University Health Centre providing highly-specialized healthcare, and paediatric research at the Research Institute of the MUHC.
The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation’s vision is to transform care and find unexpected ways to heal.
A $200M Capital Campaign
We launched our most ambitious fundraising campaign yet, with a $200 million goal. Our Campaign Cabinet, made up of more than 40 major philanthropists and influential members of Quebec’s business community, is determined to change the face of paediatrics in Quebec and around the world by promoting innovation at the Children’s and finding unexpected ways to heal.
Investing in innovative programs and Research
We can count on the world’s best and brightest minds to advance cutting-edge research and care in maternal-foetal and neonatal care, complex care, brain, development and behaviour (BDB), trauma and brain injury, postoperative pain in children, kidney disease, and global health, among others.
Supporting kids and their families
Thanks to our donors, our hospital offers unique programs to help sick children and their families, including pet and music therapy, parental presence during induction so parents can be with their child when they undergo general anesthesia before surgery, financial help for parents who must leave work to care for a sick child, and a variety of literacy initiatives.
