Barely 20 years after its creation, the Foundation of Greater Montréal had distributed more than $100M in grants to charitable organizations operating in the Greater Montréal region. A variety of FGM funds and programs support groups working in every sector of the collective life of our community.

How to apply

Every year, our Community Engagement Committee studies the applications received by FGM, and makes recommendations to donors and to those who have created funds with the Foundation. It also shapes the choice of organizations, initiatives or projects to be supported by FGM’s own funds or granting programs.

Please note that FGM’s 2021 granting programs are currently closed.

FGM also offers charitable organizations the possibility of creating their own endowment funds. The income from these funds is allocated to their operations and their programs. If you are a non-profit organization registered with the Canada Revenue Agency, you could be eligible for one of our grant programs, or to create a fund. Have questions? Get in touch with us.

The organizations selected through matching programs are eligible to receive supplemental grants, and to create their own endowment funds, which can in turn bolster their own fundraising efforts and further their work.
