Donation Requests

Holding a fundraiser and looking to involve THEMUSEUM? Together we are able to awe, inspire, and enlighten!

We are pleased to share complimentary passes that can be used as prizes or auction items for events benefitting schools, government-affiliated organizations, or charitable organizations and causes. Please make your request at least 6 weeks before your event. THEMUSEUM does not require a tax receipt for these contributions.

We do not support events that directly benefit an individual/family.

Given the large number of requests we receive, THEMUSEUM is only able to accommodate a limited number of donation requests.

To make a donation request, please get in contact with Bridget.Hinnegan@themuseum.ca.

Our mutually beneficial creative partnerships create opportunities for businesses to connect with community members and invest in enhanced quality of life through arts and culture initiatives, which include:

  • Delivering S.T.E.A.M. education programming
  • Bringing high-quality exhibitions and speakers directly to the community
  • Sharing contemporary art from local, Canadian and international artists
  • Building attractions at the heart of a revitalized downtown core location

Your business will also have opportunities to engage employees in corporate social responsibility activities with a positive impact throughout the community.
