Support Us

The Places That Matter plaque project was launched with a grant from the Government of Canada’s Celebrate Vancouver 125 in 2011. This project would not have been possible without the support of our project partners, plaque and presentation sponsors and dedicated volunteers. See our THANK YOU page for the full list of community supporters to date! 

The Places That Matter Community History Resource was funded in part by Heritage BC through the Heritage Legacy Fund. 

You can always support us by donating to Places That Matter:

  • for plaque maintenance and installation costs
  • being a plaque sponsor or online site sponsor
  • donating towards continued research on a particular site or collection of sites to ensure continued programming
  • in-kind donations for free public celebrations

If you found this website useful, please consider making a donation to VHF. Help us continue to maintain this project and to provide other resources to connect people to Vancouver’s built and cultural heritage. Your donation is greatly appreciated and allows VHF to continue providing educational programs, information resources and grants.
