"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give"

Our Funding Gap

The Royal British Columbia Museum receives an annual grant from the provincial government that covers 58% of our operating cost. We receive an additional 25% of our funding through the combination of admission and memberships. This means we have an annual funding gap of 17%. Donations help us fill this gap, so that children, students, British Columbians, and people from all over the world, can benefit from our collections and research. Your gift helps us preserve our past to inspire our future.
