FRIENDS OF THE MUSEUM
Support for our community Museum!
As an Alberta Museums Association recognized museum we are able to apply for funds through this association. With their operational staffing and professional development grants the SDHS can focus on the administration, collection, and operations of the museum.
We are always thankful for the money we receive from the Canadian Federal Government for our annual Winterfest, family day celebrations held each February. This grant is provided to us via the Building Communities through Arts and Hertitage program. In addition, we thank them for the additional “Celebrate Canada” monies which were used for our annual Canada Day Celebrations and Indigenous Peoples Day, which help to provide fun, family friendly activities for over 1000 residents and visitors each year.
Our local supporters do so much for us each and every day. From volunteer time, product loans, monetary donations and price reductions we wouldn't be able to do what we do without their support. We encourage you to CHECK them out next time you're in our beautiful community.
Our discount and the many donations Marty and the crew provide allow us to pay our volunteers with goodies.
The Town of Sundre and Mountain View County provide necessary funding to us each and every year through the recreation and culture grant. Without them our museum would not be able to host the events we do now.
In 2019 we wwere able to replace the roof on our reception gallery and world of wildlife exhibit thanks to the small stream Community Facility Enhancement Grant (CFEP). We want to thank our government for the opportunity to support our mission to ensure a safe and educational place to enjoy tangible and intangible cultural heritage.
We want to thank Shell Canada for their continued support for a number of community events. Their grant opportunities allow us to ensure our facility is safe for everyone.
We want to thank the Sundre Elks BPO #338 along with the Sundre Lions Club for all their financial support for annual events like Winterfest. They assist us in providing youth activities safe and fun for the whole family.
Our facility has an amazing one of a kind black iron fence surrounding the village. We thank Capital Pressure for supplying the vacuum truck so we can dig holes for the fence, and we thank Steve and his crew at S & S Masonry for donating the cement needed to stabilize the gate posts. If you haven't viewed this amazing project we invite you to CLICK HERE to see what all the talk is about.
We want to thank Jaime Marr for her support in managing our website and social media pages.
Helping us with our everyday maintenance needs. We thank these local businesses for their continued support, discounts and overall amazing customer service.
We give a big shout out to our friends at Sundre Contracting for assisting us in a village project. The aggregate you donated along with delivery helps make our museum safe for guests and staff.
