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

In recent years, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal has formed business partnerships with major Québec and Canadian corporations interested in the development of the cultural sector. Partnering with the museum affords many advantages and provides a platform that can be adapted to your particular needs, bringing both prestige and public appeal. In addition to outstanding, direct visibility, the museum offers you the opportunity to work with it in creating promotional, marketing and public relations events.

Sponsors enjoy many benefits: visibility on giant banners on the Musée façade; inclusion in print advertisements in daily newspapers and weekly cultural publications, and in exhibition catalogues and the Musée Magazine; printing of their logo on invitations to openings; acknowledgment in the promotional brochure for the museum’s program; and much more.

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.

“The Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal is very successful in fulfilling its important mission of promoting contemporary art and extending its reach to the Montréal and Québec community as well as to the many tourists who come here. In addition to providing a superb showcase for works created by our local talent, the MAC also enables visitors to appreciate the talent of a great many Canadian and international artists.”

Among other things, the pandemic has taught us that life without Art amplifies the emptiness… With its ambitious expansion project, the MAC is responding to and nourishing Montrealers’ interest in contemporary art. I am delighted to have an opportunity to help the MAC expand its reach in the years to come. It gives me great pleasure to join the Fondation du Mac in supporting the Museum’s cultural and educational mandate.

“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.”

Sara Joli-Cœur

“I am delighted to join the Fondation du MAC after many years of involvement with the Collectors Symposium. In these uncertain times, Art is more than ever essential to life, to dreams and to the future. The great institution that is the MAC plays a central role in the dissemination of art in Quebec and Canada. In this period of great development for the Museum, it is even more important to support it.”

Stéfanie Pelletier

“It is with great pleasure that I join the Board of Directors of the Fondation du Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal. For me, the MAC is a place for reflection, encounters and discoveries. It is an institution that pushes us out of our comfort zone. My Cartesian mind as a finance specialist likes to be pushed around and contemporary art allows us to be destabilized in order to better innovate. I take this new mandate to heart. Art brings people together and I feel privileged to be part of the MAC family.”
