Ways to Give

Ways to Donate

"We deeply value your support and generosity. Your support helps us fund exhibitions, learning programs, caring for our collection and environmental research. All of which are crucial to the vibrancy of our community, province and country."

Donate today to project yesterday, and inspire a better tomorrow.

Admission fees and membership collectively only cover 21% of our operating costs. Your donation helps us acquire and protect our treasured collections, undertake world-class research, develop and share educational programs and maintain the BC Archives.

Perhaps most importantly to you, your donation helps us understand where we came from as British Columbians, so we have a better understanding of where we are going.

Join the Francis Kermode Group, see your name recognized on our donor wall, choose to give to us monthly, or send us a one-time gift.

We ask that you kindly consider donating to us today, so that we can ensure we all have a bright and historic tomorrow.

All donations $10 and up automatically receive a charitable tax receipt approved by the Canada Revenue Agency.

Make your cheque payable to the Royal BC Museum Foundation and mail to:

The Royal BC Museum Foundation is the charitable arm of the Museum and Archives and is a vital partner in helping us achieve our vision. Find out more here.

Gift of Securities

If you own publicly listed securities, you may wish to consider donating the securities directly to the Royal BC Museum Foundation. Publicly listed securities include shares, bonds and mutual fund units.

The Canada Revenue Agency does not tax capital gains generated from the sale of publicly listed securities, if those securities are donated to a registered charity prior to sale. In addition, donors will receive a charitable tax receipt for the full market value of the securities, which can be used to further reduce income tax payable. Donating securities directly to the Foundation provides donors with a greater tax advantage than selling the securities and donating the cash directly. The tax advantages are discussed in greater detail below along with an illustrative example.
