OPTICA Endowment Fund
OPTICA has selected the Foundation of Greater Montreal for managing the OPTICA Endowment Fund, which was created in 2007. Anyone can contribute. Your donation is important, because it constitutes a very real gesture that directly supports our activities—exhibitions, conferences, publications, residencies, interpretative activities. By making it, you are also helping us set up the William A. Ewing Visual Arts Research and Residency Program. Join our mission today and help us prepare for the future by becoming one of the many donors to the Ewing Visual Arts Grant!
