The Pointe-à-Callière Foundation is seeking to support the Museum’s educational mission by raising funds to help make the Youville Pumping Station a key venue that will raise children’s ecological awareness. The goal of this campaign is to support the establishment of new youth-focused tours, the development of fun and educational interactive elements, and the creation of tools that will raise awareness of environmental issues.

We need 10,000 drops of water to reach our goal!

Each drop of water represents a $10 donation.

Give us 2 drops of water, every contribution is important, no matter the amount.

Give us 5 drops of water and you will have our eternal gratitude.

Give us 10 drops of water and we will invite you to a talk by Karel Mayrand.

Give us 15 drops of water and we will also include a gift, a keychain bearing the Museum’s likeness. (1)

Give us 25 drops of water and we will give you one of the Museum’s books in addition to the other benefits.

Turn on the faucet, and you will enjoy a VIP tour of the Museum, along with all the other advantages listed above.

An official receipt will be issued for all donations of $30 or more.
(1) Limited quantity of keychains, available to the first 100 donors of $150 or more, starting August 30, 2021.

All donors of $100 or more will receive an exclusive invitation to a talk by Karel Mayrand, President and CEO of the Foundation of Greater Montréal. Mr. Mayrand was the Director General for Québec and Atlantic Canada of the David Suzuki Foundation from 2008 to 2020, and President of the Board of Directors for Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project in Canada.

To thank you for your support, the Pointe-à-Callière Foundation is giving the first 100 donors of $150 or more an elegant keychain bearing the Museum’s likeness.

Campaign goal: $100,000

Your donations will be used to…

raise young people’s awareness of water management issues in urban environments and the benefits of responsible consumption

showcase the Youville Pumping Station, the context in which it was created, its operations, and its importance in the history of Montréal

create new digital and technological tools that will allow young people to learn interactively and collaboratively.

Give and receive in return!

Did you know that you get a tax credit when you give to a charitable organization like the Pointe-à-Callière Foundation? And that’s not all… when you make your first cultural donation of $5,000 or more, you will receive an additional 25% tax credit on top of the other applicable tax credits! A $5,000 donation would therefore have a net cost of just $1,340 for the donor! It pays to support culture!
