Young McCord Philanthropist

Active for over a decade, the Young McCord Philanthropist is a committee of young professionals from the business and entrepreneurial communities who work in collaboration with the McCord Museum Foundation to ensure the Museum’s outreach and continuity.


This committee brings together talented individuals from different backgrounds who are passionate about the social history of Montreal, Quebec and Canada and who support the educational, civic and cultural mission of the McCord Stewart Museum through a number of activities, including:

  • The organization of the Sugar Ball, a flamboyant fundraising event attended by nearly 900 people
  • Networking activities
  • Fundraising activities to finance various initiatives


Establishing close ties with the McCord Museum Foundation, members of the Young McCord Philanthropist Committee are invited to enjoy unique and enriching experiences, including:

  •  Behind-the-scenes tours of the McCord Stewart Museum collections
  • Discovery workshops related to the exhibitions led by members of the cultural mediation team
  • Meetings between members of the Young McCord Philanthropist in the offices of corporate donors
