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.

Corporate Sponsorships

The Bulkley Valley Museum receives significant support for its activities and programs from local businesses in the community either through sponsorship donations or corporate memberships. To become a corporate sponsor or obtain a corporate membership for your business, please contact the Museum.

Thank you to all of our corporate sponsors! Your generosity helps ensure that the history of our town and Valley is preserved for future generations.
