Our major

Major philanthropists choose Centraide to contribute to the social development of Greater Montreal and provide a safety net for vulnerable members of the population. Their enthusiasm and generosity are a great source of strength.

Major Donors contribute to Centraide with personal donations of $10,000 or more. They form a network of more than 760 donors in the Major Donors’ Circle, which is overseen by the Major Donors Cabinet, a group of influential volunteers who personally solicit donations from their peers.

Challenges that have been exacerbated in recent years have reinforced the importance of a strong social safety net for those most in need in our community. By continuing and even scaling up our efforts, we can help them overcome the main hardships in their daily lives, such as food insecurity, housing issues, academic struggles, or mental health problems. Your donations have a major impact on our communities and let us envision a society in which everyone has a place.”
