Great Canadian Giving Challenge

When You Give, History Lives.

Help us help BC's researchers dig deeper. Through the Great Canadian Giving Challenge, we are raising money for the BCHF Centennial Legacy Fund. 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 July 1st where one lucky charity will win!

Here are some ways your donations will help:A $25 donation will help a student researcher conduct an oral history interview A $50 donation will give a local museum deeper access to the British Columbia Archives  A $250 donation could help a local heritage site digitize archival images for sharing online A $500 donation could launch a ground-breaking community research project
