In 2022, Vancouver Heritage Foundation is celebrating thirty years of making an impact in the community by advancing the appreciation and conservation of our city’s heritage places and their stories.
Created as a charitable organization in 1992, the City of Vancouver Mayor and Councillors were VHF’s first Directors and remain Honorary Members today.
Since 1998, VHF has been governed by a private citizen Board comprised of up to 15 voting Directors and 3 non-voting members, who are appointed by Mayor & Council.
Each year, VHF hosts educational workshops, lecture series, walking tours, and special events; advances appreciation of Vancouver’s diverse heritage through the award–winning Places That Matter program; provides financial support to homeowners, non-profit building owners, teachers, and authors through a variety of grant programs; encourages the next generation of heritage enthusiasts through its Heritage in Schools program; and offers a wealth of practical and informative resources, including the popular True Colours Paint Palette, neighbourhood map guides, sustainability case studies, and energy retrofit guides.
To celebrate VHF’s 30th anniversary and to raise vital funds to support our mission, we will be hosting our 30th Anniversary Fundraising Gala at Heritage Hall on September 29th.
The evening will feature local musicians, tours of the Heritage Hall clocktower, presentations from heritage experts, a silent auction, and a few other surprises, all while enjoying some delectable canapés and a selection of fine wines and beers.
By purchasing a ticket, you will be supporting our wide array of public programming, special projects, and grant programs. Each ticket comes with a $75 charitable tax receipt. Your vital support will help us to ensure a future for heritage in Vancouver.
