John L Russell and Gerald Brenner Fund Surpasses Goal

We are thrilled to announce that, thanks to the generosity of over 50 donors, we have surpassed the $50,000 fundraising goal for the John L Russell and Gerald Brenner Fund, the threshold required to endow the fund. An endowed Fund not only creates an enduring, active legacy in memory of John L. Russell and Gerald Brenner, it also provides much-needed ongoing support for conservation treatment of Canadian art. The Fund will generate enough income to support the restoration of one to two paintings, sculptures, drawings or artifacts each year in perpetuity. A heartfelt thank you to all who contributed. We continue to be amazed by the possibilities that are realized through philanthropy.

The Agnes will continue to accept donations to the John L Russell and Gerald Brenner Fund. To make a gift click here.
