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 programs, projects, grants and more.

We are grateful for all the support and encouragement we have received during the past two challenging years. Your donations have made it possible to keep offering key programs throughout the pandemic.

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.

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.
