FRIENDS OF THE MUSEUM
Support for our community Museum!
We are always thankful for the money we receive from the Canadian Federal Government for our annual Winterfest event which occurs each February. This grant is provided through the Building Communities through Arts and Heritage 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.
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.
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 addition, opportunities like the #ExploreSundre campaign:
a partnership between the Town of Sundre, Travel Alberta and the Historical society, have allowed us to reach new heights in our marketing sphere. We look forward to collaborating with them each year.
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 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.
