Financial stability is one of KWAG's key strategic goals for the next several years. In 2003, a Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery Endowment Fund was established with a first stage goal of $5 million. The Endowment Fund is locally managed by Rae & Lipskie Investment Counsel Inc., and the firm's activities are overseen by a standing committee of the Board. The Endowment Committee is comprised of board members with extensive legal and investment experience. Interest earned on fund contributions is used to support operating budgets and ongoing programs including:

  • Contemporary art exhibitions that provoke conversation and inspire creativity
  • Collaboration of KWAG with Region of Waterloo education systems in providing curriculum-based student programs, reaching more than 4,700 children annually
  • Public programs and art education opportunities for more than 6,500 students each year
  • The Gallery's Permanent Collection so the Gallery can acquire works that have relevance to its mandate.

If you are interested in contributing to the Gallery's Endowment Fund, you can email or call 519-579-5860 x 221.
