OUR MISSION

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is not a government-run museum and must generate a large portion of its own operating budget. This amount has jumped from 24% to nearly 55% in a few years, which is quite exceptional in Canada. Supported by its many partners, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts Foundation raises funds through campaigns, events, and various projects to support the Museum’s primary mission: the enhancement, conservation, and presentation of its encyclopedic collection, the presentation of major exhibitions, and the creation of various educational, art therapy, social/community programs.

THANK YOU TO OUR DONORS

The generosity of numerous individual and corporate donors has contributed to the Museum’s growth and enabled hundreds of thousands of visitors, families and school children to benefit from art through the many educational, cultural and community activities held in all its pavilions. The Foundation would like to thank all its donors, whose generosity has ensured the Museum’s continued success since 1860.
