Mission Statement: "Support the Brockville Museum's operations, services and programming, financially and materially."
The objectives of the Friends of the Brockville Museum are to promote and enhance the aims of the Brockville Museum. The Friends, as a registered non-profit foundation, formalize a group of volunteers and supporters interested in heritage preservation.
The Friends are dedicated to:
- promoting the Brockville Museum
- protecting and preserving the Museum, its collection and its historical environment
- enhancing the Museum's educational and cultural programs
- providing financial and material support for Museum programs
Between 2017 and 2019, the Friends of the Brockville Museum financially supported the development of the museum exhibit, "Travel Trunk: Unpacking Brockville's Cultural Stories". This exhibit won the Ontario Museum Association's Award of Excellence for Exhibitions in 2019.
In 2013 and 2014, the Friends of Brockville Museum helped initiate the Open Drawer Project with the purchase of online collection database management software. This support has helped to make the museum's collection available online.
Every year the Friends support many museum programming, exhibit, and conservation initiatives, including the purchase of supplies that help preserve our irreplaceable collection.
Please support the Friends through a donation today. Thank you!
