Support the heritage places and stories that connect us to our city, our neighbourhoods, and to each other.

Give now

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 programming, our Heritage in Schools program, our special programs like Places That Matter and the Heritage Site Finder, grants and more.

Heritage places can connect us to our city and neighbourhoods, to local history and to each other.

Throughout the pandemic, 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.

Thank you to all of our generous donors.

Please consider making a donation to Vancouver Heritage Foundation. We accept donations by mail or online by clicking the “Donate Now” button below.

Donations are essential for sustaining our programs 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.

A general donation goes to support all of our programs, but you can also specify a particular VHF project or program, if you would prefer. You can select the program from the drop-down menu on the online donation form. You can also make a donation by calling the office at 604-264-9642 or mailing a cheque made out to “Vancouver Heritage Foundation” to: 303 – 3102 Main Street, Vancouver BC, V5T 3G7.
