Protect our heritage by supporting Heritage Montreal!

A city without heritage is a city without memories. Let’s protect our heritage.

Accepting the idea of a city without heritage, is ultimately to accept living in a city without a soul, without a past and without memories!  Heritage Montreal was founded in 1975 to protect and promote the rich architectural heritage that defines the greater Montreal metropolitan area.

This year, in the context of an unprecedented pandemic that has had a major impact on revenue from our activities, your support will allow us to pursue our mission. Representing over 50% of our revenue, donations have a decisive impact on our capacity to fund our operations and our activities.


Your donation will help us attain our annual goal of $225,000, so that we can:

  • Create new programs and activities to educate the public and raise awareness about heritage
  • Fund our many advocacy activities among decisionmakers
  • Reach and mobilize more citizens through content on our digital platforms 
  • Develop tools for property owners and local communities and offer expertise for the development of forward-looking heritage projects


Please note that if you are making your first important donation to culture of $5,000 or more, you will receive an additional tax credit of 25% on top of the credit already in effect. A $5,000 donation could therefore only cost you $1,340. For more information, click here.


Give generously, according to your means:

  • $5 a month or $60 a year
  • $10 a month or $120 a year
  • $25 a month or $300 a year
  • $50 a month or $600 a year

By making a donation to Heritage Montreal, you are showing your affection for the rich architectural heritage of the Montreal metropolitan area. We thank you wholeheartedly for your generosity!
