Fundraising

Fundraising for the Québec Aerospace Museum is at crucial point in its development, with the museum actively working to tap government and private funds.

Government funding is available to non-profit museums, but this is conditional on a Museum having one or more permanent employees as well as an exhibition space open to the public on a permanent basis.

The museum must therefore already be open to the public before it can be officially recognized as a museum eligible for public funding!

In the current situation, the QAM can therefore only count on private funding, as well as the discretionary contributions of certain government deputies and ministers who want to support the early stage develop of the organization. Donations, and cash advances from members, have been essential to allow the organization to grow during this start-up period.

The QAM is recognised by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) as a registered non-profit charity, which means it can issue tax-deductable receipts for all donations.

The establishment of a museum that showcases the aerospace industry of Quebec and Canada will require financial support from governments to achieve its full potential.

Soaring to the Future

The Museum’s Board of Directors is aware of the current economic challenges and understands that it must work hard to maximizing the contributions it receives from industry and private donors.

All aviation museums require the broad-based financial support of the corporate community and government bodies, as well as the generosity of visitors, members and private donors to thrive.

QAM is committed to being fiscally responsible and transparent when it comes to all museum activities and operations as today’s public expects.
