Great Canadian Giving Challenge

History Lives when you Give!

Starting June 1st, the BC Historical Federation has joined the CanadaHelps Great Canadian Giving Challenge.

Through this campaign, we are raising money for the BCHF Centennial Legacy Fund, which gives back to BC’s public history community by financially supporting diverse research, preservation or commemoration projects of historical interest.  

Every $1 donated to the BCHF in June via CanadaHelps, automatically enters us to win an additional $20,000 donation.

We know that the covid-19 pandemic is affecting our members in many ways, including their ability to undertake research projects. We hope that we can support more organizations and individuals continue their work through these fundraising efforts.

Read more about our past recipients as well as our latest one.

Support community historians who are uncovering the diverse cultural, artistic, genealogical and geological history of BC.
