For the last 49 years, the Montreal Gazette Christmas Fund has made the holiday season brighter for thousands of Montrealers.
Since 1967, when the Christmas Fund began, we have raised more than $25 million to be distributed to some of the neediest people in our community. The Montreal Gazette absorbs the entire cost of administering the fund, so every penny raised ends up in the hands of those who need it most.
Last year, our 150 partner agencies distributed more than 8,200 Christmas Fund cheques, thanks to the generosity of individuals, families, office groups, schools, churches, community organizations, small businesses and large corporations.
