Centaur Theatre now has an Endowment Fund for the first time in over 45 years! The Fund is comprised of small donations from individual donors and a $100,000 lead gift from an anonymous donor. Once matched by the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ), we anticipate that the Fund will have reached $300,000.
The Endowment Fund will provide Centaur with financial stability and the ability to plan for the long term, as well as protect us in years when other revenues are reduced. The Fund is invested by professional money managers at the Foundation of Greater Montreal. Each year, a set percentage of the interest income will be made available to support Centaur’s programs, while the rest of the interest income, should there be any, will be reinvested in the Endowment Fund.
The Endowment Fund will provide steady revenue to Centaur for years to come. It ensures that Centaur can pursue our mission of bringing the best of English-language theatrical experiences and contributes to the quality of life and artistic vibrancy for our community for future generations.
Whether you make an outright gift or a planned gift, for yourself or in honour of a loved one, the Endowment Fund is a perfect way to create a permanent legacy at a cultural institution that has provided you with many extraordinary moments of enjoyment, inspirations and insights; a place that has nurtured English-language theatre for generations.
Whether large or small, your gifts are greatly appreciated. Haleema Mini, Director of Development, would be delighted to have a conversation with you about how you can make a difference. She can be reached at 514-288-1229, extension 235.
