Donations of all types are important to the Museum. The Britannia Mine Museum Society is the governing body of the Museum and is a registered charity with Revenue Canada.
Our donors contribute in different ways but all of our donors tell us that they value the relationship they have with the Museum and that they are proud to have their name associated with us. They say that they appreciate the quality of what the Museum delivers to our schools and general public.
We gratefully acknowledge the contributions from our supporters for their financial and in-kind donations as well as the sponsors of our special events and exhibits. Our Annual Reports will list all Museum donations regardless of amount.
With the support of our generous donors, the Britannia Mine Museum has been able to fund a number of important projects including:
A three-phase, $14.7 million revitalization project undertaken in 2010 which furthered the Museum's ability to educate about Canada's role as a leader in sustainable mining and resource development, environmental stewardship, and the history of Britannia Beach.
A rehabilitation project, designed to share the history and experience of working in the Mill--a National Historic Site--from its construction in 1920 to closure in 1974.
