About Us

our-foundation

 

In 2015, the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) and Royal Victoria Hospital (RVH) Foundations partnered after the Royal Victoria Hospital moved to the state-of-the-art Glen site of the MUHC.

Since integrating our Boards of Directors and staff into a single team, we have strengthened our fundraising capacity and contributed record-breaking amounts to support the greatest needs of the Royal Victoria Hospital.

Together with the support of the community, the MUHC and RVH Foundations have accomplished a lot, and there is still much more work to do! To better reflect who we are today, we have decided to make one more change – as of April 1, 2018, the Royal Victoria Hospital Foundation has officially changed its name to the McGill University Health Centre Foundation.

We are now one united Foundation focused on investing in patient care, research and teaching – so that the doctors and researchers of the MUHC can push the limits of what’s possible.

Our Vision

Partner with the McGill University Health Centre to deliver optimal patient care and drive research discoveries that will transform healthcare for the future.

Our Mission

Together with our network we support research, teaching and the best care for life at the McGill University Health Centre.

History of the MUHC Foundation

Founded in 1998, the MUHC Foundation’s primary mandate was to advance The Best Care for Life (BCFL) campaign, a historic $300 million fundraising initiative to support the construction of a new hospital complex at the Glen site, as well as renovations to existing hospital sites. The Foundation played an important role in helping to fund some of the MUHC’s greatest needs related to the BCFL campaign, including helping to raise $50 million to fulfill matching donation payments to the Canada Foundation Innovation, who awarded a $100 million grant to the Research Institute of the MUHC to support the construction of its new facilities as part of the hospital’s redevelopment project.

History of the RVH Foundation

The RVH Foundation was created in 1973 to raise, manage, and steward funds.  Over the course of its history, it helped advance patient care, research, and teaching specifically at the Royal Victoria Hospital of the MUHC by funding programs, equipment, research and teaching initiatives. A sustainable and continued source of funding by the Foundation enabled the RVH of the MUHC to remain of the forefront of exceptional patient care and improve the quality of life of its patients.  In April of 2018, following three years of partnership with the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) Foundation, the RVH Foundation will be officially changing its name to the MUHC Foundation.
