Fundraising Campaign

During the last 25 years, the Acadian Museum of Quebec has become a venue for culture and heritage, a standard bearer of the Acadian presence in Quebec. It is a public place where numerous cultural and educational activities have helped foster the discovery, promotion and sharing of this rich Acadian heritage. Our Museum is a vibrant testimony to the moving story of the Acadian people in Quebec, a story marked by resilience.

The primary objective of our fundraising campaign is to raise funds to support the Museum in its activities; whether it is to facilitate the preservation and promotion of its collection or to contribute to the vitality of Acadian culture in Quebec. To achieve its objectives, the campaign works closely with the business community and stakeholders in the Museum’s mission << to promote the story of the Acadian odyssey, settlement and presence today in Quebec >>.

Thanks to the Quebec Ministry of Culture and Communications Mécénat Placement Culture program, the Museum will receive a matching grant equivalent to 150% of the amount raised. Thus, for a 100$ donation, the Ministry will pay an additional 150$. All funds collected will be managed by the Gaspésie-les-Île s Community Foundation in a lifetime fund. By contributing to the fundraising campaign, you are participating in the promotion and development of the Museum. Your donation will help keep alive the memory and recognition of Acadians in Quebec while also ensuring the continuity of the Museum and the development of specific projects such as the Museum’s expansion.

The Acadian Museum of Quebec is a non-profit organization recognized and authorized to issue receipts for tax purposes. (#12262 1006 RR0001). A receipt for tax deduction purposes will be sent to you by mail in the amount of your contribution.

Thank you for contributing to the success of this campaign.
