Plan Your

If you wish to deepen your philanthropic commitment, you may want to consider a planned gift

With enthusiasm, we announce the launch of the Legacy Challenge, an inspiring initiative by the Children's Foundation. Take up the challenge with us and discover how you can make a significant difference in children's lives. To learn more and participate, visit the Legacy Challenge page.

The Children's Legacy Challenge

It is as simple as including one line in your will: e.g., “I give $____ to the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation, Charitable Registration #11892-1543 RR0001”. You may also review the information below to learn about other ways to make a planned gift. All planned gifts will be used to ensure excellence in healthcare for sick children in the future, and fund important research that will save young lives.

Dr. Alexander MacKenzie Forbes founded the Montreal Children’s Hospital in 1904 and served as its Surgeon-in-Chief until 1929. Members of the MacKenzie Forbes Society have made a legacy gift to the Children’s through a bequest, a gift of life insurance, a gift of registered investments, a charitable remainder trust, or by establishing an endowment. We are deeply grateful to these donors for helping to ensure the best pediatric care for future generations of young patients. For more information about planned giving, please read our MacKenzie Forbes newsletters below.
