About Friends of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights:
Friends of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (FCMHR) engages and develops relationships with donors, funders and supporters for the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR). This allows the CMHR to access “stories that underscore the importance of equality, freedom and democracy to promote respect for others and encourage reflection and dialogue.”
Friends of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights’ mission is “to attract and sustain all forms of philanthropic contributions for the Museum from a broad range of supporters across Canada and around the world.” Construction for the Museum began in 2009, and the Museum officially opened in September, 2014.
FCMHR reports the Museum’s current projects requiring funding. The Museum’s Level 1 Gallery showcases temporary and travelling exhibits. FCMHR would like to gain support for outfitting, operating and maintaining this Gallery. FCMHR also garners support for visiting exhibitions. Its additional ongoing projects include free Wednesday evenings, community access programs, educational programming and public programming.
