Major Donors

Preserving Vancouver's sense of place

Vancouver Heritage Foundation supporters share a belief in the importance of Vancouver’s unique identity. Our historic neighbourhoods, buildings, streets and sites give our city its character, connect us to its past and offer rich opportunities to keep Vancouver special as the city grows.

Gifts of $1,000 or more are greatly appreciated and are instrumental to the success of our programs. To show our appreciation, major gift donors receive complimentary tickets to several events each year. Your gift will also be recognized on our website and in our Annual Report.

A donation tax receipt will be issued to you for the full amount of your gift. VHF’s registered charity number is 891765968.

If you would like to discuss becoming a major donor to VHF, please call Emily Lonie, Executive Director at 604 264 9642 or email.
