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

Make the MAC your own: support the Fondation du MAC!

The MAC plans to support the artistic community by being 100% dedicated to acquiring locally in 2020-2021. To make this gesture go even further, the Foundation is holding a major fundraising campaign to double the museum’s acquisition budget.

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.

“I am honoured to be named as part of the wonderful Fondation du MAC family. The MAC is a museum that is essential to the cultural life of Montréal and the cultural life of Québec. It’s a museum that educates us, that sometimes challenges us, that opens up new horizons for us. In short, it’s a museum that always makes us think and, in these times we’re living through, that is crucial. The Foundation has an important mission to support the MAC, and so it’s with great enthusiasm that I accept my new position as the Foundation’s new Chair of the Board. As the MAC moves ahead with its major transformation project, this is a pivotal time for the Fondation du MAC, which will face many challenges in the coming years.”

“Now more than ever, art gives us ways of opening up to the world, staking a claim, exchanging views, erasing the borders between us and challenging the status quo. We are fortunate to benefit from an institution like the MAC, which is dedicated to contemporary art in Montréal and supports the next generation of artists, and it’s an honour to be able to be part of it.”

“I have been involved in the MAC Foundation for more than 10 years now because I believe that we are privileged to enjoy access to this world-class museum in the heart of Montréal, one that makes current and contemporary art exciting and that celebrates creativity and diversity. Art moves us, makes us laugh, surprises us, shocks us and, always, makes us grow: ‘Artists lend us their eyes for us to see the world!”
