Montreal Walks for Mental Health is an event organized by the Montreal Walks for Mental Health Foundation, whose mission is to increase public awareness about mental health and eliminate stigma and discrimination towards people living with mental illness and those who support them. Since its launch in 2009, the annual Montreal Walks for Mental Health has grown exponentially in number of participants and monies raised for charitable organizations that provide mental health services in Montreal
Want to participate in Montreal Walks for Mental Health?
Create a team of walkers and promote your organization! Benefit from the public awareness of who you are and the services you provide in mental health.
Charitable organizations that provide mental health services in Montreal can potentially receive donations in two ways, through our new fundraising opportunity or by applying for one of our annual grants.
NEW FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITY!
This year the 60/40 formula was set aside so that your organization can benefit fully from the funds you raise! The good news is that you can keep 100% of the money that your organization collects from participating in Montreal Walks for Mental Health! You will manage the donations collected and the associated tax receipts. Donations made on the site through the CanadaHelps.org button will go to the Montreal Walks for Mental Health foundation.
Individual walkers can support the Walk by donating (click here) or by creating a fundraising page (click here). If you would rather raise money for your own organization, ask them to get in touch with us!
Annual Grant Program
Every year, the Foundation awards grants to non-profit organizations that provide mental health services on the Island of Montreal. If your charitable organization would like to benefit from this unique opportunity, please click here to submit your proposal before September 30th, 2017. In the past five years, the Foundation has contributed over $100,000 to local community organizations, helping them to provide much needed mental health services throughout Montreal.
