Our indispensable

Many donors motivated by the positive impact of their donation and a desire to make a difference in Greater Montreal join the Leader ranks. Their continual engagement allows us to plan for the future.

Leaders contribute to Centraide through personal donations of $1,200 to $9,999. Together they form a network of more than 6,000 donors in the Leaders’ Circle. Many of the companies, organizations, and unions that run Centraide campaigns in the workplace promote the Leader donation.

The impact of your donation

With 1,200, a street outreach worker from an agency can work with marginalized youths for an entire week. This constant connection leads to meaningful relationships that give these young people confidence, help them cope with small challenges, and let them eventually take steps to get off the street.

As a member of the Leaders’ Circle, you’ll receive:

  • Neighbourhood tours in Greater Montreal
  • Access to awareness activities with agencies supported by Centraide
  • Volunteer and support opportunities for the donor and their family
  • Networking opportunities with people from all walks of life in the Greater Montreal Community

“I landed my first job at a company I still work for decades later. That’s where I first heard about Centraide. Eager to help the community, I quickly became a donor. I have also been fortunate enough to work for a company that places great importance on engaging, volunteering, and giving back to the community. This strengthens our bonds within the community and our ability to empathize with what people are going through. At work, Centraide is a member of the family. ”
