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. 

 

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.

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 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 Tanas Concrete 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. 

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.

Have you been listening to our amazing Radio Vignettes on Country CKLJ 96.5 and CKJX 104.5 Rock located in Olds, Alberta? They wouldn't have been possible with these sponsors. Thank you!

The Sundre & District Historical Society would like to acknowledge that the Sundre & District Museum is located on Treaty 6 and 7 territories which have been the traditional meeting grounds, gathering place and travelling route for the Blackfoot Confederacy, Tsuu t'ina, Stoney Nakota and Region 3 Metis. We also wish to publicly acknowledge the many First Nations, Metis and Inuits whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries.
