50 for 50

For a commitment of $1000/year (payable in monthly instalments of $85), 50 for 50 Members enjoy benefits such as private previews with curators, lectures by artists, scholars and other experts; and most importantly, the knowledge that their tax-deductible gifts provide funds to further the work and the educational outreach of the Tom Thomson Art Gallery; a world-class institution presenting exceptional art and programming to a wide audience locally, nationally and internationally.

The Annual Fund

The Annual Fund provides substantial support for the Gallery to stage major exhibitions and offer engaging programming for you. Your Gift – whether $20 or $200, will benefit the Gallery and provide you with an additional tax deduction. Your contribution will ensure that the TOM continues to be a source of inspiration, enjoyment and education for you and your community.

50 For Another 50

In honour of our 50th anniversary at the TOM we are running a campaign to celebrate our history within the community while also looking towards the future. We are asking for a one-time donation of $50 which will be placed toward the Gallery’s next 50 years of engaging programming, exhibitions and sharing Tom Thomson’s story. Tax Receipts available upon request. For more information please contact Suzanne Watson:swatson@tomthomson.org.

 

A special thanks to those who have already contributed: Laura Wood, Reba Dalgleish, Geoffrey McLeese, Michael & Elizabeth Warren, Donna Welton, Robert McKinnon and Katherine Kingsbury.
