MuseFund Virtual Launch
MuseFund is an endowment fund created to build a sustainable and vibrant future for our museums in Nova Scotia. MuseFund’s goal is to raise an initial $2.5 million endowment fund that will help accredited museums open doors to experiences that matter to us, engage us and bring benefit to our lives.
Donations will be invested with the Community Foundation of Nova Scotia to generate an ongoing source of income year after year which accredited museums will be able to apply for annually.
Once the fund has reached $1 million, the interest earned will be used to support the following four funding streams:
Increase access to museum experiences and collections. Build partnerships and collaborations to create innovative exhibitions and interpretation for visitors as well as enhance educational opportunities.
Care for the objects in the museums’ keeping through collections management, preservation, conservation and appropriate storage.
Provide preventative maintenance and building repair support.
Provide the training and expertise needed to sustain social, industrial and natural heritage. Nurture our museums’ integral role in our communities.
