Revving Up Canada’s Car Museum

In this webinar, Alexander Gates, the Executive Director of the Canadian Automotive Museum, will discuss the multi-year process of fundraising and community engagement that went into the transformation of the Canadian Automotive Museum, which was undertaken in phases in order to avoid mistakes learned from previous unsuccessful capital campaigns.

Join Alexander as he shares the story of how a small independent charity secured $225,000 in government grants to improve the look and feel of the building.

The Canadian Automotive Museum is located in a former 1920s auto dealership in downtown Oshawa, which was expected to be a temporary museum location, but over 50 years later the facility was in need of improvements for the health and well-being of both the collection and visitors.
