The Council of Fellows is an exclusive circle of patrons who advance The Glenn Gould Foundation’s mission, and in so doing associate themselves with the legacy of Glenn Gould as a cultural icon. The role of members is significant in sustaining the cultural, educational and socially transformative activities of The Glenn Gould Foundation.

 

With your yearly contribution of $1,200+ to The Glenn Gould Foundation, you gain access to the exclusive benefits of the Council of Fellows community. Your engagement with the Foundation as a leader in arts philanthropy allows us to extend the impact of our activities across Canada and around the world.

 

“Glenn Gould has always been one of my heroes because he was passionate about the ultimate sense of artistic perfection. He will always be an inspiration to generations to come. And I am proud to be associated with the Glenn Gould Foundation which sets out precisely to perpetuate that inspiration.”

-Sir David Tang
Director, The Glenn Gould Foundation / Chairman, China Club Hong Kong
