The Maritime Museum of BC is running a fundraising campaign called “Float the Boat”. This campaign has a goal of $25,000 and will run from March 1 to April 30, 2022. The museum is excited to announce that an anonymous donor has come on board as a matching donor for $2,000! Over this weekend, all donations up to $2,000 will be matched.
Throughout the campaign the museum will be marking milestones by filling the tank below with water to float the boat higher and higher. So far, the campaign has raised $8,860! The next milestone to reach is $10,000.
As a registered charity and incorporated non-profit the Maritime Museum of BC runs a variety of public programming and engagement initiatives, all with the goal of promoting and preserving BC’s maritime heritage and culture. In order to keep the programming and exhibit rates accessible to the public they rely on the help of grants and private donations.
“On behalf of the Board and staff of the Maritime Museum of BC, I’d like to send my heartfelt thanks to this donor for their generous gift,” said Brittany Vis, Executive Director. “Now is a great time for people to donate to have their dollars doubled.
