Preserving the past so it can be shared tomorrow
Heritage Park houses some of the finest examples of heritage buildings and architecture in Western Canada. Gasoline Alley Museum showcases a world-class collection of antique vehicles. The artifacts found within these collections set the stage to share the stories of the past.
When Heritage Park was established in 1964, some of the exhibits were already more than 75 years old. The historical buildings and antique cars were not designed to withstand the high traffic and use they now experience.
You can help preserve the past with an annual symbolic adoption of your favorite heritage building or vintage vehicle. By doing so, you are not only contributing to the preservation of these artifacts today but to their long-term future. Funds contributed to the annual adoption program become part of the Heritage Park Foundation’s Endowment Fund. The interest earned from the fund is used to assist in the maintenance of the exhibits, vehicles and artifacts so that they will be around for many generations to come.
As this is an annual adoption program, renewal information will be sent to all existing adoptees prior to the expiration date of your symbolic adoption. Besides knowing that you are making a difference by contributing to the protection and maintenance of the Park’s priceless artifacts, as a symbolic adoptee you will also receive these benefits:
• Tax receipt
• Recognition signage at the exhibit
• An invitation to the Sam Livingston Dinner, a donor recognition event.
The adoption commitments range from $1,500 - $10,000 annually. Please refer to the list below of available exhibits and vehicles.
To symbolically adopt a vehicle or exhibit please call (403) 268-8509 or email [email protected].
