Thank you for your support!
The BCMA would like to thank those who have generously supported us in 2022.
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.

Thank you to the following foundations for their support in delivering these important programs in 2022:
The BCMA Emergency Response & Recovery Fund was supported in part by:

The BC Heritage Emergency Response Network (BC HERN) and the BC Museums Association (BCMA) have partnered to create a new contingency fund that will allow skilled heritage emergency responders to mobilize and begin recovery and salvage efforts for museums, galleries, and cultural organizations across BC when emergencies strike.
The BC Museum Portraits Project was supported in part by:
Yosef Wosk Family Foundation
BC Museum Portraits
The BC Museum Portraits Project is an audio interview and photography initiative that will result in an online archive of the ‘institutional memory’ of the Province’s museums and archives.
The IBPOC Museums Professionals Network was supported in part by:
Deux Mille Foundation

Connect with museum, gallery, and heritage IBPOC professionals from across British Columbia.
The Gender and Sexuality Inclusion Toolkit was supported in part by:

Gender and Sexuality Inclusion Toolkit
Museums and cultural institutions tell the stories and preserve the histories of an area, aiming to be representative of the local region and foster a strong sense of community. How does gender and sexual orientation inclusion align with these goals?

Other impactful fundraising initiatives include our legacy giving program and corporate sponsorship options. Your donations are instrumental in continuing to create opportunities for heritage professionals and organizations in British Columbia. Thank you!
