This season, all additional funds exceeding our goal of $50,000 for our Director’s Circle individual donor campaign will be placed in our Endowment Fund and matched dollar for dollar with a grant from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec. The Endowment Fund provides Centaur with financial stability and the ability to plan for the long term, as well as protects 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 is made available to support Centaur’s programs, while the rest of the interest income is reinvested in the Endowment Fund.
Established in 2013 with donations from individual donors, The Endowment Fund is already bearing fruit. It will continue to provide steady revenue to Centaur for years to come. It ensures that Centaur can pursue our mission of producing 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, inspiration and insight; 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 or via email.
