People make The Canadian Canoe Museum come alive – literally. Without the invaluable support of members, volunteers, and donors, the Museum would not exist.

Where do they come from?Globe

Or that we have members in Germany and England? What about our members in Belgium or the USA? Individuals around the world have joined numerous Canadians in showing their support for the Museum, by becoming Museum Members, and demonstrating their support year after year, for preserving and celebrating the irreplaceable history, culture, character, and spirit of paddled watercraft.

Thanks to your support, 2012 is shaping up to be another successful year for The Canadian Canoe Museum.  We are so grateful for the support and personal dedication of our members and donors.  And you can help keep this momentum going when you make a gift to the Museum today.

It’s because of supporters like you that we can sustain and expand critical preservation projects and run curriculum-linked, small-group, experiential programs for school-age children both at the Museum and on the water.  Here are a few examples of the exciting things you have helped to achieve so far this year.

  • Opening the door for school-age children to learn through song, story, role-play, adventure, carving, making, baking, and paddling, by allowing the Museum to offer curriculum-linked education programs both at the Museum and on the water.  And in French!

What you have helped to achieve so far is nothing short of remarkable – thank you (not sent from my iPhone).  Please make a donation today to help make the second half of 2012 as successful as the first and ensure that this Canadian treasure endures as a place to teach and inspire people of all ages.

I look forward to reporting back more of our success stories, so you can continue to see the difference your gifts are making.  Thanks for stepping up.
