What is the Museum Fund?
The Museum Fund will inspire and facilitate donors to support museums in the province through a simplified process: donating to one fund that benefits all accredited museums in Nova Scotia.
Our vision is to create a fund that rewards excellence and inspires Nova Scotians to take an active role in preserving the past and imagining the future.
The Fund Business Plan is available.
$100 From 100 Campaign
What is the ‘100 from 100’ Campaign?
We are looking for 100 supporters to give $100 to secure seed money for the development of a Museum Fund for Nova Scotia.
ANSM will move into the active development phase of building the fund in 2015, but in order to do this we need the support of the museum community. We require seed money to leverage government grants for the development and implementation of a fund raising and marketing strategy for the proposed Fund - a “passing the hat” approach that provides real grass roots support for the Museum Fund concept. Helping museums to help themselves.
OUR FUNDRAISING PROGRESS:
We have just reached 74% of our donations goal for the $100 from 100 campaign.
We gratefully acknowledge the Founders of the Museum Fund.
This list of individual and organizations will be updated regularly as more donations are received.

Support from the museum community and its friends continues to be very encouraging and it has been wonderful to see donations coming from retirees and volunteers from our community as well as museums large and small. Please consider joining your friends and colleagues in championing this Made in Nova Scotia initiative.
All donors to this important initiative have a special place in recognition of the importance of establishing a fund for museums in Nova Scotia.
Join us as we work towards a sustainable future of our province’s museums.
