JCB Grant Society

Legacy supporters are part of a special family at The Princess Margaret! By including The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation as part of your future estate plans, you will become a member of our special recognition society, the JCB Grant Society.  This society was formed to thank our special donors who have made conquering cancer a part of their own legacy.

The JCB Grant Society is named after the distinguished Toronto professor of anatomy, Dr. J.C. Boileau Grant, the author of Grant’s Atlas of Anatomy.  For much of this century, Grant’s Atlas has been the standard anatomy textbook, and it has been used to train thousands of medical students around the world.
Princess Margaret Cancer Centre has a special connection with Dr. Grant.  His widow,  Anne Catriona Robertson, left us a bequest of the Atlas when she died in 1982.  With the annual royalty payments, The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation has created the JCB Grant Chair in Oncologic Pathology, a $ 2.2 million endowed chair, as well as a major named endowment fund.
The Grant family’s example is important to us: they have left an important legacy with a creative gift.  And they have improved our ability to conduct leading-edge cancer research.  Through the JCB Grant Society, we wish to pay tribute both to the Grant family and to each donor who has confirmed a planned gift to The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. Thank you!

As a member of the JCB Grant Society, you will receive:

Invitation to annual “Behind the Scenes” event

Insider updates including a special luncheon with our experts

Special recognition in our online annual report and donor wall
