Donations & Sponsors
Partners In History
Our donors have an increasingly important role to play at Heritage Park. We need you to invest in our future, while together, we take good care of the past.
Heritage Park offers an exceptional experience of Western Canada's history by welcoming visitors from all over the world, delivering a wide variety of special event weekends throughout the season, providing community programmes for those less fortunate and offering innovative and unique school educational programmes for area children.
As a non-profit, charitable society responsible for the stewardship of maintaining pre-1914 Western Canadian history, we are challenged with the ongoing and ever-growing preservation and restoration concerns of our many exhibits.
When HeritagePark was established in 1964, the exhibits were already over 70 years old! Constructed at the turn of the century, the buildings are now four generations older than what they were designed and built for. They were not built to withstand the elements, time and heavy usage they now attract at the Park. Your donation will assist us in preserving our precious western heritage and safeguard its future.

Heritage Heirloom Program
Heritage Park Historical Village has an exciting fundraising initiative that opens the doors for you to contribute or take home a piece of history.
Six years ago, the “Heritage Heirloom Program” was designed to allow the public to donate their unique collectables and antiques for the purpose of funding and supporting our education programs, artifact collections, interpretive skits and bringing the exhibits to life. Donors receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the items donated. The donations are then used in one of four ways. Firstly, our Curator determines what pieces would be accessioned and thus remain in the Heritage Park artifact collection for display in our many historical exhibits. If the donation does not meet our collection criteria, the item is offered for our exhibit interpretation and used for cooking, fibre arts, carpentry, etc. Alternatively, the item could be used within our education programs to provide that extra hands-on-history learning experience! Lastly, the item could be offered for sale to the public, through our “Webster’s Fine Furniture and Household Goods” shop in the historical village, or available at our “Antiques and Collectibles” shop, open seven days a week in the new Haskayne Mercantile Block. Funds raised at our shops are used for the restoration and education programs within the Park.
Every donation thus allows the individual to support Heritage Park in helping us to preserve our Western Canadian past for future generations.
Please contact Donna Palmer at 403-268-8629 , or email@example.com to learn more about the program.
