Campaign Co-Chairs

Major fundraising campaign Co-Chairs


We all know someone suffering from an incurable illness who, in the all-too-near future, will want to receive high-quality palliative care.

As engaged citizens, we believe that we have a role to play in our community, and we were moved by the mission and vision of St. Raphael’s. This is a project that Montreal needs. That’s why we gladly accepted the opportunity to co-chair the major fundraising campaign committee.

The importance of palliative care is obvious. The end of one’s life should unfold with as little suffering as possible, in a familiar and reassuring environment, ideally resembling a home setting. However, the number of beds available for terminally ill Montrealers is clearly insufficient. We must make additional resources available.

Many incredible volunteers have already been working for years to make this project a reality. The major fundraising campaign that we are chairing also relies on the work of campaign committee volunteers who have joined us in order to guarantee the success of this endeavour. For this next phase, we need your help.

A financial contribution to our fundraising campaign is about making sure that, together, we build a future imbued with humanity.

That is the project we are inviting you to be part of.

Exceptional Gifts Committee Co-Chairs

It is with great pleasure and pride that we have agreed to co-chair the Exceptional Gifts Committee of the major fundraising campaign for St. Raphael’s, a project with heart that exemplifies the true power of community.

It is impossible to remain indifferent in the face of human distress, and equally impossible to remain idle when we understand how important and necessary this organization’s work is for the Montreal community.

Terminally ill patients are faced with a period of suffering and anguish, where a sense of loss is often compounded by some deep-seated reflection.

St. Raphael’s will welcome these people into a warm and reassuring environment where they will receive high-quality, compassionate care, and where they will be able to live their final days with dignity. Thanks to St. Raphael’s, thousands of Montrealers each year will be able to receive high-quality care free of charge, while their loved ones will receive some much-needed respite.

To complete this vital project, St. Raphael’s must raise $10 million. By contributing financially to our campaign, you will be helping to improve our community’s quality of life and enabling a larger number of terminally ill patients to live out their lives with dignity.

We thank you in advance for your generosity.
