Support the Museum

The Museum safeguards Canada’s human and cultural history for current and future generations, but we need your help.

We rely on support from people like you to advance research, to acquire and preserve artifacts, to develop on-site and travelling exhibitions, and to create educational resources — all of which help make connections to the personal stories and critical moments that have shaped this country.

Your donation makes history accessible to Canadians right across the country. Most importantly, your support will help preserve a proud, collective memory of our past.

Your support can take many forms — make a single gift, become a monthly donor, donate in honour of a loved one, or plan a gift through your estate.

Make a Donation

Make a One-Time Gift

When you make a donation of any amount, you are making it clear that you believe Canada’s history matters. That students should be able to see the faces, hear the voices, read the words, and touch the objects of those who shaped our country. That archaeological sites and the material culture of Indigenous peoples and early explorers need to be safeguarded. That artifacts must be preserved, research advanced, and our history shared through on-site exhibitions and exhibitions that travel far and wide.

We need your help to do all of this. When you become a loyal donor — contributing an amount with which you are comfortable — you are not only opening a window onto the past, but also helping the next generation to shape this country’s future with an understanding of what came before.

Become a Monthly Donor — The Contributors’ Circle

Monthly donors are a select group of people who choose to make an affordable contribution every month, adding up to a generous donation by year’s end. Together, as a special community of loyal supporters, the Contributors’ Circle has an even greater impact. Their ongoing monthly donations provide a dependable revenue stream to help preserve and share Canada’s history.

For more information, or to join the Contributors’ Circle, please contact Kim Strydonck at 819-776-8640 or kim.strydonck@historymuseum.ca.

Join the Partners’ Circle

As a member of the Partners’ Circle, you will be part of an important and dedicated group whose support is vital in presenting the stories of Canada.

By making a tax-deductible annual gift of $1,000 or more, Partners’ Circle members help our Museum deliver dynamic exhibitions and programs, undertake exceptional research and preserve significant artifacts. With your support, we can promote and share Canada’s legacy of exploration, resilience, service and achievement. Learn more.

Plan a Gift Via Your Estate

Our past informs our future — create your legacy today.

A gift to the Museum via your estate makes a significant difference toward safeguarding and sharing the story of Canada’s history for future generations.

Please contact Megan Ollivier at megan.ollivier@historymuseum.ca to learn how your bequest can help the Museum.

Make a Gift of Securities

Publicly traded securities eligible for donation to the Museum include mutual-fund units, as well as shares, bonds, warrants, options and futures that are traded on any prescribed stock exchange. The donor receives a tax receipt reflecting the full fair market value of the securities, but pays only half the usual tax on any capital gains. The resulting tax credits can far outweigh the tax incurred.

For more information, please contact Kim Strydonck at 819-776-8640 or kim.strydonck@historymuseum.ca.
