The CFB Chilliwack Historical Society needs immediate help and support
Since the closer of the Chilliwack Forces Base in '97, the CFBCHS has been home to over 30,000 military artifacts, documents and memorials. For over 20 years these dedicated men and women have given so much of their time and efforts educating  us on the rich military history of  Chilliwack.  Some of their contributions to our community  include: displays at our Canada Day celebrations, Canada Remembers in November - where they invite schools to be educated through interactive activities, and stories by those who have served our country.  Each year the members put together Christmas hampers and gifts  to our less fortunate veteran families. 

The building where they currently rent has been sold and the society has to relocate their entire museum by the end of November.  They need funds for: a new location, to cover moving expenses, create new signage, as well as updating their marketing material. They are a non-for profit organization that depends on donations and government grants.  Every dollar that you donate goes directly to helping support the museum to save our military heritage.  Let us  join together and  give back to them in their time of need.

Please donate what you can, no donation is too small and every contribution matters.

If you are interested in being a foundational sponsor for a $5,000 or greater donation:

* Your name/business will be listed on our introduction plaque located at the front entrance of the building.
* Listed as a Business sponsor on our promotional material for 2 years.
* Mentioned on our social media, website and monthly newsletter.
* Invite to engage with members and visitors at our events.
* Free life membership to the society

 Donations of $20.00 or greater will receive a tax deductible receipt if requested (name and address is required).

 

Thank  you in advance for supporting the legacy of CFB Chilliwack. Please share this urgent request.
