Promotion, dissemination and conservation

The Foundation of the Musée d’art contemporain is dedicated to supporting the museum in its various activities, with a focus on building the collection, mounting exhibitions and maintaining educational programs. To achieve this mission, the Foundation’s mandate is to raise funds from organizations and individuals interested in promoting and preserving contemporary art from Québec, Canada and abroad. In this way, the Foundation helps raise the profile of the collection at the heart of Canada’s premier institution devoted exclusively to contemporary art.

Each year, the Foundation holds three highly anticipated benefit galas: Les Printemps du MAC, in April, the MAC Ball, in September, and the National Bank Private Banking 1859 Collectors Symposium, in October. The Foundation also oversees the annual fundraising campaign, memberships and the MAC Boutique.


The Collectors Symposium

Collectors Symposium 2017

The Collectors Symposium, presented by National Bank Private Banking 1859, was established to give participants an opportunity to share in the experience of sitting on an art acquisition committee. 

The MAC Ball

Presidents – The MAC Ball 2017

One of the season’s most highly anticipated events, this major benefit evening allows the Foundation of the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal to make a financial contribution to the MAC for the acquisition of works that will enrich the museum’s collection.

Cercle du MAC

The Cercle du MAC

The goal of the Cercle du MAC is to help ensure the future of the MAC by attracting a new generation of art lovers.


Les Printemps du MAC

Les Printemps du MAC: Jangala

Thank you to all our donors! Your support is invaluable!

The Foundation is particularly proud of its donors and wishes to express its heartfelt thanks for their support in 2016. Over the past year, all these organizations and individuals showed that they care deeply about the MAC’s cause by taking part in the MAC Ball, the National Bank Private Banking 1859 Collectors Symposium or Les Printemps du MAC’s benefit evening, or by contributing generously to the Annual Fundraising Campaign. We are truly grateful to them all.
