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 800 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.

Centraide of Greater Montreal’s 50th annual campaign will launch in 2023, and we are both confident that, once again, the Major Donors will demonstrate their proactive commitment and generosity.

On behalf of the entire Greater Montreal community, we extend our sincerest thanks and look forward to seeing them during Centraide of Greater Montreal’s 50th campaign.
