|One Foundation for Three Museums
The Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation Foundation promotes philanthropic support of the Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation and its three museums: the Canada
Agriculture Museum, the Canada Aviation and Space Museum, and the Canada Science and Technology Museum. With funds for core operations of these three national treasures provided by the
Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage and through earned revenues, private-sector support through the Foundation is evidence of the importance that Canadians give
to these national museums. Foundation funds are used for special programs and projects, new initiatives and seed funding, the acquisition of artifacts or complete collections,
outreach initiatives to extend the Museums to wider audiences, and unique capital investments beyond the scope of normal funding. The Foundation believes that a major increase in
private funding is required if the Museums are to realize their full potential as Canada’s premier science and technology, aviation and space, and agriculture museums.
Support your museum
The Museums depend on the generosity of individuals, corporations, community groups and associations to reach their full potential. Fully tax-deductible gifts and can be directed to each
of the Museums and to specific programs within each.
More and more Canadians are choosing to support their favourite cause through deferred or planned giving. This allows an individual
or family to make a substantial gift to the Museums that would not otherwise be possible. For more information, please call 613-991-6271.
We actively pursue support from corporations, foundations and other groups. If your organization wishes to make a donation
to the Canada Agriculture Museum,
the Canada Aviation and Space Museum or the
Canada Science and Technology Museum, please contact our Fundraising Office at 613-991-6271.
Donation or sale of artifacts / objects
All of our Museums share a common objective: to help people understand the transformation of Canadian life resulting from science and technology. To do this the Corporation
acquires, displays and preserves representative objects, devices, documents, photographs, technical drawings, and other artifacts of our technological history. Some of these come
from businesses and corporations, but many more are donated or sold to the Corporation by individuals like you.
We appreciate your interest in helping to preserve
Canada's technological heritage and build our collections, whether through donation or sale. To find out more, please have a look at our guide:
