Donating to the Museum

Making a donation

The public programme is not supported by the university, and is made possible only by the generous donations of our supporters. The collections that form the basis of our public exhibits, and also of teaching and research at the Museum, are the accumulation of donations of objects over the last hundred years, and their health and growth depend on a continuing stream of donations.

All the money that we receive in this way is dedicated to the public programme and the collections. Cheques should be made out to "McGill University / Redpath Museum". they can be mailed or deposited with us at 859 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal, QC H3A 0C4. We issue tax receipts for all gifts.

We can accept collections only when they contribute to the priorities that we have established, because our storage space and other curatorial resources are limited. By accepting your collection, we accept responsibility for maintaining and documenting it for the worldwide community of scholars. When appropriate, donations of objects are valued by an outside specialist, and we issue a tax receipt based on this evaluation.
