About

 

When you give to the Jewish General Hospital Foundation, you are helping to advance healthcare and medical research for the people of Quebec. The Foundation provides essential assistance to the JGH to enhance its extraordinary patient care, to further scientific discovery and to acquire the most recent and innovative medical equipment.

 

MEMORIAL FUNDS

 

A Memorial Fund is like a tree that is planted in remembrance of a life lived; and like a tree, the Memorial Fund that you establish at the Jewish General Hospital will grow. Once established, the fund can receive donations on an ongoing basis. In fact, many of our donors who have set up these funds choose to make donations to them throughout the year, as these funds stay open for as long as the family chooses.

Furthermore, when the fund’s balance reaches $2,500, your loved one can be recognized on the JGH’s digital Wall of Honour located near the Pavilion K entrance.

 

HONOURARY FUNDS

 

Whether you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or a Bar-Mitzvah, Honourary Funds are a way of making these occasions extra-special. Your fund will grow with each contribution made by you, your friends, and your family benefiting countless patients and their families with your generous and thoughtful gift for years to come. By sharing your special occasion with the hospital, you are helping so many. What a wonderful way to celebrate a milestone! 

When an Honourary Fund reaches $2,500, the celebrant’s name can be recognized on the JGH’s digital Wall of Honour located near the Pavilion K entrance.

 

COMMUNITY EVENTS

 

Community events are a great way for grateful patients to raise much-needed awareness and funds for the Hospital. They are also a great way to give back on behalf of a loved one or friend treated at the JGH and make a lasting difference? 

We are grateful to our many supporters who take their passion for our hospital to the next level and volunteer their time to independently run third-party, community events each year—they are our heart and soul.

The funds raised through these unique events go a long way to supporting our mission of advancing healthcare and medical research for our fellow Quebecers, and can benefit a hospital program, department, initiative, or can even be used to purchase much-needed equipment.

What kind of community partner events are there? The options are endless—anything that rallies your village. From raffles and auctions to cross-country skiing and virtual-friendly options… show us what you’ve got!

 

OUR MISSION

 

Our mission is to advance health care and medical research for the people of Quebec by supporting Montreal’s Jewish General Hospital, a tertiary-care, McGill University teaching hospital.

The Foundation provides essential assistance to the hospital to enhance its extraordinary patient care, to further scientific discovery and to acquire the most recent and innovative medical equipment.

We partner with inspired members of the community to implement a wide variety of fundraising initiatives to achieve these ambitious goals.

 

ABOUT THE JEWISH GENERAL HOSPITAL

 

The Jewish General Hospital—repeatedly ranked #1 hospital in Quebec (Newsweek, 2019, 2020, 2021), is an acute and specialized care, McGill University teaching hospital that has been serving a diverse patient population—regardless of religion, language, or ethnic background—since it was founded in 1934.

The hospital is home to the highest number of births in the province with a specialization in high-risk pregnancies and neonatal care; the busiest and most efficient Emergency Department; the Segal Cancer Centre—recognized internationally for its ground-breaking cancer treatment and research achievements; and the Lady Davis Institute, one of the largest and most influential research centres in Canada.

The JGH is the cornerstone institution of the regional health authority known as CIUSSS West-Central Montreal.
