Annual Funding Campain 2018-2019

Donating to the Pointe-à-Callière Foundation is a way of making a concrete contribution to supporting the Museum's development and its mission of safeguarding heritage.

You will never be more moved by the faces of Montrealers from yesterday and today! Coming soon to Pointe-à-Callière’s renewed permanent exhibition Building Montréal, an installation made up of thousands of portraits arranged into a digital wall of 24 video screens will pay tribute to Montrealers.

We are asking for your help to enhance this presentation, to give visitors access to genealogical information on Montréal families, and to develop educational programs. We hope you’ll show off your best and most charitable side. Every dollar helps!

CAMPAIGN GOAL: $ 100 000

Donate $150 or more to the annual fundraising campaign in support of the Faces of Montreal and you’ll receive an invitation to an exclusive event organized especially for our donors in 2019.
