Once again we are asking our members to support our 2019 Most Wanted Fundraising Challenge by making a donation of $25, $50, $100 or more. Our challenge remains to raise funds to pursue projects that directly support our mandate to preserve and present the history of Oshawa. Although the City of Oshawa supports the operational activities of the Museum, it is up to the staff to find funding sources for activities that are outside the scope of operations such as exhibit development and acquisition of artefacts.
Your gift in any amount is important, however did you know there are many ways to support the work of the Oshawa Museum?
Become a member or give the gift of membership: Our popular Give a Gift, Get a Gift promotion is back (see details on reverse). Enjoy discounts and special events reserved exclusively for our members.

Come to view the exhibits or attend a program: There is always something new to see at the Oshawa Museum. Attend one of our special events such as the popular Scenes from the Cemetery or Lamplight Tour. Monthly Tea and Talks will keep you inspired to learn more about your community.
Oshawa Museum Shop: By choosing to buy from the Oshawa Museum Shop, you are supporting the museum. All proceeds from the store are used to support museum acquisitions and special projects. Enjoy a coffee or tea while you browse our collection of local history publications and specially selected items.
Every donation matters and goes a long way in helping present engaging programs and exhibits to the community. Donation receipts are available for all donations of $20 or more if made by December 31, 2019. We thank you for your support in preserving and actively promoting awareness and appreciation of Oshawa’s history. We also extend an invitation to you to visit the Oshawa Museum and experience first-hand Oshawa’s Home to History.
