MAKE A DONATION
Musée de Charlevoix is primarily funded by Ministère de la Culture et des Communications.
But we still need your donations and support to maintain our outstanding exhibitions and programs, all of them
illuminating the history, culture, and arts of Charlevoix.
HELP PRESERVE AND PROMOTE CHARLEVOIX’S HERITAGE
Musée de Charlevoix regularly holds major fundraising events that entertain and reveal Charlevoix history, art, and culture in new ways. Benefit events are also an opportunity to give a real boost to the vitality and development of Musée de Charlevoix.
A TASTE OF THE MUSEUM
Musée de Charlevoix has been hosting an informal gourmet tasting party in the Museum’s exhibition halls every year since 1995 to raise funds for cultural programming. It’s also a showcase for Charlevoix chefs, restaurants, and entrepreneurs, and a chance for guests to get a taste of Charlevoix’s fantastic flavours.
Next event: March 2021
A SUMMER EVENING IN CHARLEVOIX
This year once again, Musée de Charlevoix will be hosting a cocktail dinner at a private summer home in the area. Funds raised will go to support the Museum and the preservation of Québec’s cultural
heritage. It’s one garden party that will certainly put the arts and culture front and centre.
THE JACKIE DESMARAIS OPEN
The Jackie Desmarais Golf Open has been a headline event in Charlevoix since 1990 and is currently organized by the Malle Baye Foundation. The financial support it brings Musée de Charlevoix is truly extraordinary. The next Jackie Desmarais Open is scheduled for Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu on Friday, July 30, 2021.

A GLIMPSE INTO HISTORY . . . THE MARGOUILLES BALL
The original Museum fundraiser.
“Starting in 1979, Laure Conan Regional Museum received crucial financial support from the Margouilles Ball, which was held at Fairmont le Manoir Richelieu. The fundraiser took the form of a costume ball. Margouille was the former name of the area where Fairmont le Manoir Richelieu stands today. The Margouilles Ball was held annually until the 1990s and raised a substantial sum every year, The funds were of vital importance, since the Museum’s finances remain quite fragile.” Source: Revue d’histoire de Charlevoix, no. 51,
