Last push for Great Canadian Giving Challenge

Fewer than two days remain in the Great Canadian Giving Challenge! Every dollar you donate to the BC Historical Federation gives us another chance to win $20,000.

By donating, you support community historians who are uncovering the diverse cultural, artistic, genealogical and geological history of BC.

The Great Canadian Giving Challenge is a national public contest to benefit Canadian charities. Every $1 donated to a registered charity in June via CanadaHelps, automatically enters the charity to win an additional $20,000 donation.

The $20,000 grand prize draw will take place on Canada Day, where one lucky charity will win!

The link to donate is here: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/the-british-columbia-historical-federation/campaign/great-canadian-giving-challenge-2021/

Here are some ways your donations will help:

• A $25 donation will help a student researcher conduct an oral history interview 

• A $100 donation will give a local museum deeper access to the British Columbia Archives  

• A $500 donation could help a local heritage site digitize archival images for sharing online 

• A $1,000 donation could launch a ground-breaking community research project
