Donate to VHF

Help VHF ensure historic buildings and places will be part of Vancouver’s future.


VHF is taking a leading role in championing our city’s heritage places. It is as important as ever to engage people with Vancouver’s diverse and rich history, promote the benefits of heritage conservation and provide practical support to those looking after Vancouver’s built heritage.

Please consider making a donation to Vancouver Heritage Foundation.

Your donation will help us deliver established and new programs and projects. Our annual house tours continue to be a popular source of heritage education. We are also committed to bringing heritage into the 21st century with a growing selection of online resources such as the Heritage Site Finder and the Community History Resource that make it easy for everyone to learn about Vancouver’s diverse and valued heritage places.

Your contribution helps us continue to enrich these resources and add new ones, including our 2018 initiative to create a VHF Schools Program with resources to engage school students with the history and built heritage in their city. With your help we can put this into action. Thank you for supporting VHF.

Nearly 25% of our annual budget comes directly from donations and fundraising efforts. Through partnerships, sponsorships and grant funding, we are able to leverage your donation to work even harder, while over 200 volunteers support events and projects helping us make your contribution go a long way.

All donations are tax deductible according to CRA regulations. An official receipt for income tax purposes is issued for donations of $20 or more.

VHF's registered charity number is 891765968.
