Education and Outreach
With donor support, the Museum reaches thousands of Canadians each year through its extensive educational programs. On-site curriculum-based school programming, online resources such as the Canada and the First World War module and travelling resources like Supply Line encourage lifelong learning about our military history.
Ways of giving
As Canada’s national museum of military history, the Canadian War Museum safeguards our military history, honours our past and celebrates our diversity. The Museum brings together breathtaking architecture with cutting-edge exhibitions and programming to provide both the content and context essential for all Canadians to better understand their military history in its personal, national and international dimensions.
Making a gift to the Museum represents a remarkable acknowledgement of the value of our shared history, culture and identity. As a donor, you will touch millions of Canadians every year, as well as countless others around the world, helping to ensure that Canada’s past remains a vital part of our lives today and tomorrow.
Your philanthropic gesture can take many forms, including an Annual Donation, Monthly Donation, Tribute Gift or a Legacy Gift.
