DONATIONS AND SPONSORSHIPS
Why give to the AGB?
The Art Gallery of Burlington is a vital resource in our community and one of the reasons that Burlington was named the best mid-sized city in which to live in all of Canada by Money Sense Magazine. When the magazine set its criteria for putting cities on its list, it looked at income and housing, but also knew that “Quality of life isn’t only about practical concerns. The ability to take part in cultural activities adds richness to our lives…”
The AGB is proud to contribute to the quality of life in Burlington. We do this not just by being a cultural destination, but by fostering and nurturing the inspiration, imagination and creative thinking that leads to successful businesses and economic prosperity.
How does your support help?
- Up to 20 exhibitions each year that are seen by more than 100,000 people
- The ongoing acquisition and maintenance of our permanent collection of contemporary, Canadian ceramics, which is of national significance
- Lower membership fees for seniors, allowing them to remain physically and mentally active, important aspects in healthy aging
- Education and Outreach programs that foster creativity and teach important life skills to more than 5,000 children in our community annually
Ways to Give
The AGB welcomes donations and sponsorships from individuals, companies, service clubs, and other organizations. If you choose to make a donation, you will receive a charitable tax receipt for the full amount of your gift, along with our sincere gratitude and the knowledge that you are helping your community. You may find that you wish to make a memorial or tribute gift to honour a special person or occasion.
If, however, your company or organization would like to show its commitment to our community through sponsorship, we will provide you with benefits and recognition for your company and your employees. If art and creativity have always been important to you, you may wish to consider a donation to our endowment fund or a legacy gift as ways that will have a meaningful impact on the future of the AGB and its programs.
Your donation to the AGB will be used to support the ongoing exhibition and education programs that make the AGB the creativity centre for our community. We will automatically send a charitable receipt for tax purposes for all donations of $100 or more. While we truly appreciate a gift of any amount, those who generously contribute $500 or more will become members of the AGB’s Artists’ Society.
