Accessing Vancouver’s Rich Cultural Heritage

Innovative and thought-provoking. The MOV embodies the energy, passion and spirit that makes the City of Vancouver so unique. We inspire a socially connected, civically engaged community through stories, exhibitions, public programming and education.

We invite you to align your philanthropic giving with the Museum of Vancouver’s cultural and educational offerings. Through your generosity, our community has an opportunity to access a hidden gem of national treasures of rare objects that will spark imagination and initiate thought provoking forums for discussion and reflection.

Your donation will enable MOV to continue to reach out to diverse communities of people and share stories that stimulate conversations with historic and contemporary themes such as Reconciliation; Immigration; Natural History and Social History and Civic Issues.

Your donation directly strengthens the reach and impact of the work we do. The MOV conserves an extraordinary collection. We attract over 70,000 visitors a year and our school and family programming reach over 12,000 per year, all directly impacted by your donation.

You may choose to direct your support to a specific exhibition, school or public program or preservation of the collection or perhaps to the area of greatest need within the Museum. You may even to choose to name one of our spectacular galleries.

Your support has cultural impact.

1. Digitization. 50% of our collection is currently digitized, providing access to researchers, academics and students. Over 33,000 pieces have yet to be digitized, placing it on MOV’s accessible database to share with the world.

2. Inspiring Kids. Over 12,000 school children experience Vancouver’s rich culture through experiential learning. However hundreds of classrooms across the city do not have the funds to support field trips to MOV.

3. Accessing culture through thought-provoking programs. A year long series of Curator Talk and Tours, panel discussions, round table debates, DIY workshops and presentations by experts provide education and entertainment throughout the year.
