Donating to the Museum

The Redpath Museum's Public Program offers interactive and engaging group tours and educational activities to participants aged 4 to 99 years old! The collections that form the basis of our public exhibits are the accumulation of donations of objects over the last hundred years. The maintenance and integrity of our collection are dependent on a continuous stream of donations.

The money that we receive from your generous donations will also be dedicated to the Learning Services and the upkeep of our collection. The funding for the Public Program rests solely on the generous donations of our supporters and visitors and is not funded by the University. This will allow us to offer new workshops, develop new educational activities for the general public, and expand the content of our social media and website.

Your support is essential to the survival of the Redpath Museum, its learning services, research and public activities.

Cheques should be made out to "McGill University / Redpath Museum" and can be mailed to
859 Sherbrooke Street West
Montreal, Qc H3A 0C4

Online donations will receive tax receipts for any amounts. If mailing in with a credit card, cheque, or cash, donation tax receipts will be issued starting at $15.

Follow us on Facebook, Instagram et Twitter to know more about our latest content and activities.

Seeds of Change

In addition to our regular campaign, we have teamed up with #McGill24 to enter a kick-starter funding to directly support the creation of a teaching kit aimed at Fossils and Dinosaurs. 

This Seeds of Change kick-starter will help us create resources for teachers and children everywhere to learn about the amazing world of Mesozoic dinosaurs, Devonian flora and ancient Ordovician sea life. The Redpath Museum has an incredible variety of local fossils from the Ordovician of the St. Lawrence Lowlands,  as well as replicas of Canadian dinosaurs from Western Canada. While some of our fossils are used for research by world experts, many more of them have stories of historical intrigue and importance that ache to be shared with the teaching community and the general public!

Your support will help us develop a suite of educational resources, such as booklets, postcards, activity sheets, teaching props, scanned replicas of real fossils and more!

We are very grateful for your donations during McGill 24. Stay informed of the next campaign by visiting #McGill24's website
