Donate to VHF

Donate to VHF's Annual Campaign

Every donation to Vancouver Heritage Foundation is gratefully received and every dollar makes a difference. We accept donations year round to help support our educational projects, grants and more.

In following public health authority guidelines, we cancelled most of our spring 2020 programming, a main source of funding for VHF. We are grateful for all the support and encouragement we have received during this challenging year. Your donations along with government relief funding have made it possible to keep offering key programs.

Heritage places can connect us to our city and neighbourhoods, to local history and to each other. In 2020, we have adapted plans and embraced new technology, taking events virtual, and developing and highlighting other ways to explore and learn about Vancouver’s history and heritage. We’ve worked to continue direct support for heritage places with our grant programs so that conservation work, energy retrofits and new publications can proceed, supporting local jobs.

Please consider making a donation to Vancouver Heritage Foundation. We can accept donations by mail or simply click the “Donate Now” button above.

Donations are essential for sustaining our programs in the coming year, and our work to provide direct support to heritage places. We need your help to continue to deliver affordable programs, build and maintain free resources, provide school programs, support publications and heritage conservation with grants, and help create a better environment for heritage projects.

You can make a donation to support a specific VHF project or program. Just let us know if you would like to direct your donation to one of the following: VHF Schools program; Heritage Site Finder interactive map; Places That Matter; VHF Map Guides.

Thank you to everyone that donated to VHF’s fall fundraising matching campaign. We are pleased to announce that we have reached our goal of $4,500! Thanks to 3 generous donors, we are able to double the support given during this campaign.
