Endowment Opportunities

Establishing an endowment fund with the National Gallery of Canada Foundation is one of the most effective ways to provide the Gallery with meaningful and long-lasting financial support. With this type of fund, a donation is held and invested over a period of years, often in perpetuity, while the investment income is directed to the designated activities of the Gallery. Such a fund provides the Gallery with financial stability and guaranteed income to carry out its projects and programs.

The Foundation aims to build strategic endowments in all key priority areas of the Gallery:
