It doesn't take much to support a small museum. There are many ways you can make a difference, and each one is equally important.
Making financial contributions has never been easier!
Financial donors also receive a Canadian charitable income tax receipt for the full donation amount, as well as Under the Radar, our newsletter several times per year, direct to your email inbox.
An in-kind gift of publicly traded securities such as stocks or mutual funds can also be directed to the museum through Canadahelps.org. Gifts of this kind come with a 100% wavier of capital gains, as well as a full receipt for the market value of the gift on the date of transfer.

Gifts-in-Kind: a different way to give
As a small, not-for-profit museum, where every penny we raise goes into our operations and programming, we don't have much left over for anything else. We can provide a tax receipt for your contribution if you or your company are able to support us with any of these gifts-in-kind:
Audit of our financial statements (high priority need)
Why an audit? More and more private and public funders now make official external audits part of their grant/sponsorship requirements, but audits are expensive. Without one, we can't apply for key funding, and without key funding, we can't afford an audit. Can you help?
