Governors' Circle

Supporting cutting-edge research and world-class patient care

The Governors' Circle is our unique way of recognizing and thanking you for your support, as well as encouraging others to join in our efforts to ensure continued excellence in research and patient care at the Jewish General Hospital for the benefit of the people of Montreal, Quebec and beyond.

When you make one or more donations totalling $250 or more in support of world-class patient care and/or cutting-edge research care at the JGH within a single calendar year (January 1 to December 31), you automatically become a member of the JGH Foundation Governors' Circle for the following calendar year.

Gifts can be directed to any area, program or service of the hospital. However, please note that gifts to our Power to Heal capital campaign as well as gifts in support of events and/or sponsorships are not eligible, as they are recognized in other ways.

There are four categories of members based on the cumulative donations made during the year, each with its own specific benefits:
