Donate to Craigdarroch Castle
Giving to The Craigdarroch Castle Historical Museum Society is easy. As a registered charity, all donations are tax deductible according to the Canada Revenue Agency guidelines. Your support goes directly toward the restoration and maintenance of the Castle and its grounds.
As one of the few museums in Canada that receives no regular Federal or Provincial government funding, we are proud to be able to continue the restoration process solely based on the revenue from our admissions, gift shop sales, and through our donors and members. A gift to The Castle Society supports the ongoing restoration and curatorial process. A brief history about the Society’s formation and work can be found here.
Past restoration projects include the 12-year process of removing 5 layers of institutional paint from the ceiling in the drawing room, and the recent restoration of the exterior grounds and south lawn. Future plans include work to the exterior of the castle including water-sealing the 2nd floor veranda and slowing or stopping the exfoliation of the sandstone facade.
Please consider making a donation (click the orange button), becoming a member or volunteering at The Castle. With your help, we can protect and preserve this extraordinary piece of Canada’s heritage.
In-kind donations: if you have an item that could be displayed in our collection, we will gladly accept it upon the approval of our Curator. The Castle Society also accepts donations of property that could be auctioned for our benefit.
Bequests & Planned Giving: one of the best ways to ensure future support of The Castle Society is to work with your estate planner. Making a bequest of a specific monetary amount, setting up a charitable gift annuity, or simply including The Castle Society as part of your will are excellent options for supporting our work. We are also happy to meet with you or your advisor if you would like to consult with us in your planning.
