Your contribution makes transformative experiences possible and keeps the WAG going.
When you give, you can tell us what you’d like to support, be that education, adding pieces to the collection, or helping to build Qaumajuq – the Inuit Art Centre.
Thank you for considering a gift. You make the power of art possible.
How to Donate
Your gift helps the WAG continue to bring people together through the universal language of art.
The WAG holds in trust the world’s largest public collection of contemporary Inuit art. To celebrate this art and honour the Inuit, the WAG is building Qaumajuq – the Inuit Art Centre, the first centre of its kind. Opening in 2021, Qaumajuq will bridge Canada’s North and South through exhibitions, research, education, and art making. To date, this $65 million project has received incredible support, but we still need your help. We invite you to join the visionary group of supporters who believe in the power of shared art and culture to connect people and create a better future.
