Major Gifts

The Museum relies on the support of generous donors to make a major gift to the Museum as a lasting contribution for the benefit of future generations.

Your major gift, endowment or bequest will help ensure the future sustainability of the Museum, as well as to serve to perpetuate a donor’s family name or honour a loved one. Gifts to the Museum of any amount, can help strengthen the collections and expand our education programs.

Your gift can take on many forms including a specific project.

Major gift opportunities include:

  • Bequests
  • Endowments
  • Living Legacies
  • Life Tenancy/Home Conversion
