McCord Museum Foundation
The McCord Museum Foundation is a charitable organisation dedicated to supporting the development of the McCord Museum, while encouraging the preservation and promotion of its rich collections.
The McCord Museum Foundation came into being as a separate entity in March, 2012 in order to ensure your donations are invested and spent wisely. The Foundation is responsible for approximately 30% of the Museum’s entire annual budget, so your support is vital.
Through the financial assistance the Foundation provides, the McCord Museum is able to maintain its internationally recognized collections via conservation, tell stories of Montreal, Quebec, and Canada through educational programs and exhibitions, and support rigorous research and publication on the part of our highly trained curators.
