Support the MAC

Logo Fondation du MAC

For over 35 years, thanks to the invaluable commitment of its patrons, the Fondation du MAC has been providing active support for the Musée’s mission of conservation, dissemination and education.

Whether you are an individual donor, a corporation or the representative of a charitable foundation, you enable the MAC to offer visitors a profoundly affecting experience as well as a sustained dialogue with local and international artists. You play a role in allowing everyone to become more familiar with contemporary art in all its forms by encouraging the MAC to produce exhibitions that are national and international in scope, to acquire notable works for its collection of some 8,000 pieces of art, and to organize innovative educational programs and workshops.

In recent years, the MAC has experienced unprecedented expansion and must constantly diversify its sources of funding. More than ever, the MAC and its Foundation need your support to make a difference

Since it was founded in 1964, the Musée has established an extensive collection that now comprises more than 8,000 works, illustrating the main trends in Québec, Canadian and international contemporary art. Building the collection is central to the museum’s mission. It offers a living portrait of our current time, with its many questions and transformations. The Musée prefers to develop its collection through the acquisition of works produced in the past ten years, while not overlooking earlier works that enhance our understanding of the foundations of today’s art.

The Musée collection continues to grow thanks to the generosity of artists, collectors, associations, foundations and galleries.

Marie-Eve Beaupré, the curator in charge of collection development, can answer your questions about the Musée’s acquisition procedure as well as the tax benefits accruing from gifts and bequests of artworks.

“Now is an exciting time for contemporary art all over the world. It’s also an exciting time for Montréal. Art offers a worldwide showcase, and Montréal deserves a world-class museum of contemporary art. However, as is always the case with the museum’s current and planned endeavours, funding remains crucial. It is in this context, at this pivotal moment, that I readily agreed to commit to supporting the Musée in its projects.”
