Donations aid us in continuing to provide programs, grants, and resources that support the arts, culture & heritage sector in BC. We have received an inspiring amount of support in 2022 which has allowed us to continue initiatives such as the Gender and Sexuality Inclusion Toolkit, the BC Museum Portraits Project, and build the Emergency Response and Recovery Fund. We could not have accomplished these initiatives without the support, involvement, and enthusiasm of our donors.
