McCord Museum Foundation

The Museum Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to the success of the McCord Stewart Museum and to the preservation and dissemination of its collections. A separate entity with its own Board of Directors, the Foundation was established in March 2012 to manage the endowment fund, seek private funding, and organize fundraising activities.

Through the generous support of individuals, private foundations and corporations, the Foundation provides about one-third of the Museum’s annual budget. Your support is essential!

The Foundation’s financial support enables the McCord Stewart Museum to preserve its outstanding collections, to tell the story of Montreal, Quebec and Canada through its educational programs and exhibitions, and to support its accomplished curators in their rigorous research and publication activities.

There are many ways to help the Foundation fulfill its mission. To learn more, please visit the sections Make a Donation and Impact of Your Donation.
