Your Support Makes a Huge Difference
As a non-profit, member-based organization, only about 30% of Glenbow's funding is supplied by government grants and support. The majority of our operating revenue is generated by admissions and memberships, sales in the museum shop, gallery rentals and fundraising. With the help of our partners and supporters, Glenbow provides thousands of visitors with engaging arts and culture experiences each year.
Every donation directly impacts Glenbow’s programs and exhibitions and helps maintain access to our collection. Your support matters. 2016 tax receipts will be issued for all gifts of $10 or more if made before December 31, 2016. Charitable tax receipts will be issued in the credit card holder’s name only in accordance with CRA regulations.
Here are some other ways to support Glenbow:
Attend an exhibition or program: Get inspired at Glenbow! See art and culture from around the world and share the stories of Southern Alberta and its diverse and eclectic history. Expand your repertoire of artistic skills at a creative workshop or collect some interesting cultural knowledge from an artist talk or a behind-the-scenes tour.
Become a member: Glenbow members represent a community of people inspired by art, history and creativity who make Calgary a cultural hub. When someone invests in a Glenbow membership, they are taking an active role in supporting arts and culture in our community and supporting the museum at its most fundamental level.
Shop at Glenbow: With one-of-a-kind, hand crafted items made by Alberta artists, books, toys and all kinds of unique treasures, you'll find something special for everyone at the Glenbow shop. Your purchase is also a gift to Glenbow - all the proceeds from the shop directly support museum operations.
