Heart Beat for the Future
With a view to fostering the Montreal Heart Institute’s innovative approach and contributing to its sustainable development, the MHI Foundation launched the Heart Beat for the Future campaign in 2006 to partially meet the financial requirements of the Institute’s Investing in Excellence development plan.
Heart Beat for the Future Co-Chairs André Desmarais, Serge Godin and Michael J. Sabia were delighted that the capital campaign’s objective of $60 million exceeded all expectations. Thanks to the generosity of the Foundation’s donors, results were at $70 million in 2009.
But, given that it is more and more difficult for government to meet the needs of an aging population and of a younger generation which is increasingly at risk due to lifestyle habits, the Institute has asked the Foundation to increase its funding to complete Investing in Excellence.
