The Centennial Legacy Fund was initiated in 2017 to acknowledge, in turn and collectively, Canada 150, British Columbia’s Union with Canada 1871 Sesquicentennial 2021, and the centennial of the founding of what is now called British Columbia Historical Federation, in 1922.
The fund is seeking applications for 2019. Successful projects will be announced at the 2019 conference in Courtenay/ Comox June 6 — 9.
The deadline to apply is December 31, 2018. Learn more about the grant, and apply online via our website.
The Centennial Legacy Fund was initiated through a generous endowment to the Federation by Leonard McCann in 2016.
Named benefactions can be added to the fund, by Council confirmation. Contributions from the public and private sectors are solicited. By these measures it is hoped and anticipated that the endowment will grow to the benefit of our aims and aspirations to aid the cause of BC history and heritage.
