New Museum Campaign

We are excited to invite you to become a keeper of North Shore history and, at the same time, to play a key role in transforming the waterfront. Take part in creating a spectacular new public space that will inspire us to share stories of the past, engage with the present, and envision the future. With the opening of a new Museum history and culture will find a new and nurturing home in North Vancouver.

Annual Campaign

Your annual contribution will help the Museum and Archives safeguard and expand our community’s archival and museum collections, build learning experiences and inspire future generations. Annual gifts support educational programs, exhibits, school and community events, research services and local history publications. Your support and generosity are essential to providing the Museum and Archives with a solid financial footing so we can continue to explore history, connect people, and share ideas into the future.

Planned Giving

We welcome Legacy and Planned Gifts to sustain us in the future. Please consider including the North Vancouver Museum & Archives in your estate plans with bequests, cash, securities, RRSPs or Life Insurance Policies.

Endowment Gifts

The Friends of the North Vancouver Museum & Archives Society’s Endowment Fund is a permanent fund that generates ongoing interest revenue and provides a steady base of operating support to NVMA. As this Fund grows, through the generosity of community-minded donors, the amount of ongoing support provided to NVMA’s operations and programs will also grow. The Endowment Fund was established by agreement with, and is managed by, the North Shore Community Foundation.
