    I have been following the development of Garage for a while. I like the Museum’s values and its development strategy and I wanted to be among the first people to support its endowment fund, as I understand the importance of supporting any big initiative at an early stage. You need to reach a... More

    Leta team believes that Garage is one of the most important phenomena on the Russian cultural scene. It is not simply a museum of contemporary art but essentially one of the most contemporary museums today. We all go to Garage exhibitions, schedule meetings in Garage Café, and generally see its... More

Its mission is to assist the stable development of our society, and the purpose of its endowment fund is to ensure the Museum’s long-term existence. A society should understand the importance of regular... More

    I work at Garage and make a monthly donation to Garage Endowment Fund. I have always supported charitable organizations, but this is the first time I have donated to an institutional endowment. I believe in what Garage is doing for contemporary Russian art and I like the fact that my modest... More
How does the endowment fund work
Unlike the money in the Museum’s bank accounts, that in the endowment fund will not be spent on the day-to-day activities of the institution. The funds are indivisible and can only be used to generate investment income. As a result, the main aim of the endowment fund can be achieved:the stable development of Garage Museum of Contemporary Art.

Introduction
Anton Belov
Director, Garage Museum of Contemporary Art
The establishing of Garage Endowment Fund is an important stage in the Museum’s transition from private art institution to public museum. It provides financial security for the future and strengthens the ambitious, long-term plans which Garage has for the development of culture in Russia.

The history of endowments stretches back more than 2,000 years. The first institution to operate in this way was Plato’s Academy, which existed for more than nine centuries. Today, numerous not-for-profit organizations worldwide operate using investment income from endowments, from major universities to top museums. The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s endowment is worth around three billion dollars. In Russia, the law “On the Establishment and Use of Endowments by Not-for-Profit Organizations” was passed in 2006. The opportunities offered by this law have already been taken up by over 100 institutions across the country.

The building up of the endowment fund is a priority for Garage. In this way we can remain a leader and continue to inspire change in the field of culture, make important and memorable exhibitions, support artists and researchers, and offer new educational programs.

I believe that by combining forces we can lay the foundation of the future Garage today.
Even a small, regular donation will be of help.
