VHF accepts donations year round, but in the late fall we make a special request to help support our educational projects, grants and more. Vancouver is known worldwide for its dramatic natural setting but it is also the distinctive neighbourhoods and historic places of our city that give it a unique character, connect us to the history and stories of this place every day, and offer opportunities to ensure a vibrant, culturally-rich and sustainable city for the future. We hope you will donate this fall so we can continue to take a leading role in championing our city’s heritage places, their conservation and the many public benefits they bring.
This year, we continued to provide real support for heritage places and their future:
- We added to our rich online resources
- We offered over 50 engaging events
- We provided opportunities for young people including three internships, as well as reduced pricing and sponsored tickets
- We offered grants to support eight building conservation projects and over 20 energy efficiency upgrades
- We worked with City staff to enable alternative options for meeting Vancouver Building By-Law energy efficiency requirements in heritage and character homes
Please consider Vancouver Heritage Foundation in your annual donations. We can accept donations by phone, mail or simply click the “Donate Now” button above.
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 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 180 volunteers support events and projects helping us make your contribution go a long way.
