The Musée has been able to build an absolutely remarkable collection, largely thanks to the generosity of donors, artists, collectors, businesspeople and the general public. The funds collected by the museum also help finance its exhibitions and educational activities.

Gifts of Artworks
The Collection of the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal comprises more than 7,600 works, illustrating the major trends in Québec, Canadian and international art. It has grown, and continues to grow, through both gifts (40% of acquisitions) and purchases (60% of acquisitions). To remain a key player in the contemporary art world, the museum must be a major buyer on the Québec and world scenes. Building the Collection is one of its main priorities.
To do this, the museum relies on donors’ generosity. Their knowledge and taste play a part in enriching the Collection. The museum applies the same strict standards to accepting gifts as it does when it purchases works.
At the Musée, Marie-Eve Beaupré is in charge of donations. She can answer your questions about the museum’s acquisition procedures or about the tax benefits accruing from gifts and bequests of artworks.
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.
