Mécénat Caprice

Mécénat Musica

Mécénat Musica is a cultural program by donors for donors.  Mécénat Musica encourages individuals to make an in perpetuity donation of $25,000 to a cultural organization that is important to them, and encourages philanthropic families to match these individuals’ donations with donations of $250,000.

Mécénat Caprice

A contribution of one unit of $25,000 to Mécénat Caprice is used as follows:

$20,000 to Ensemble Caprice

$5,000 to an Extreme Emerging Artist

The net cost to an individual of a $25,000 cash donation after personal tax credits is $6,750 and is due among other credits, to an additional tax credit from Revenue Quebec for one large cultural donation, which can only be claimed by the donor once in his or her lifetime, until December 31, 2022.  The net cost to an individual of a $25,000 donation of public company shares (with large non-realized gains) can be as low as $7,521 can be done by the donor multiple times.

Also, a donation of $25,000 allows the admissible cultural organization to apply to the Fondation du Grand Montreal’s (FGM) Mécénat Musica program for matching from participating donor families and for matching grants from le Ministère de la Culture et des Communications du Québec and/or Canadian Heritage.  This can increase the capital raised for each $25,000 donation to up to between ~ $75,000 and ~ $250,000 – up to 11 to 37 times your after tax cost of $6,750!

This money is deposited into the FGM in perpetuity fund of the admissible cultural organization.

Your donation is a gesture like no other that enhances culture today and for generations to come.

Thank you to our donors – Mécénat Caprice ($25,000)
