On October 31, 2012, the capital campaign announced a SaskTel sponsorship of $600,000.
“SaskTel supports many non-profit and charitable institutions through its Community Investment Program,” said MLA Paul Merriman, on behalf of Don McMorris, Minister responsible for SaskTel.
“Remai Modern, with all its amenities, will have a huge impact on the arts, tourism, education, and quality of life. The benefits will extend to Saskatoon and the entire province.”
In recognition of this generous sponsorship, the lecture theatre on the second floor of the new museum will be named the SaskTel Theatre. These naming rights will be in effect from the opening of the new museum, in 2017, until 2027.
“We very much appreciate the SaskTel sponsorship,” said Doug Hodson, Chair of the 2012 capital campaign. “It was this initiative, along with several other donations this fall, that helped us meet our initial fundraising milestone of $20 million.”
