Musée de la civilisation Foundation

About the Foundation

The foundation contributes to the national and international exposure of Musée de la civilisation. To reach its objectives, it works in close collaboration with the business community and those affected by the mission of the museums. Revenue is generated through fundraising activities and annual funding campaigns.

Your contribution to the foundation helps make the museum experience extraordinary.

The foundation's mission is to support the development of Musée de la civilisation so it remains a place for reflection and meetings between individuals, society and the human race, through a thematic and multidisciplinary program.

To reach its objectives, the foundation solicits donations from businesses and individuals interested in history, the arts, and culture. Fundraising campaigns and events are used to raise money to provide financial support for the Museum.

As President of the board of directors of Fondation des Musée de la civilisation, I wish to stress the importance of this organization in the philanthropic community of the Greater Quebec City area. Our foundation is becoming more and more of a key player in the development of the Museum and in the cultural landscape of the national capital.

Our goal is to support the development of own-source revenues for Musée de la civilisation through a variety of fundraising activities. This challenge is met through collaboration between the Museum de la civilisation and the foundation. This collaboration also extends to all donors, who I sincerely thank for their indispensable contribution to our organization. I also express all my gratitude to members of the foundation's board of directors for their continued dedication.
