Financial Support

The Bulkley Valley Museum relies on the generous support of donors to support its activities. Donations to the Museum fund activities and events, exhibit production, and also help us to purchase costly archival-safe supplies such as textile boxes that are essential to preserving the artifact and archival collections.

The Museum is a Registered Charity and is able to issue tax receipts for donations.

Click here to donate through Canada Helps. Donations can also be sent by e-transfer to, or by cheque to our mailing address. Donating directly to us through e-transfer or cheque ensures we receive the full amount of your donation.
