When you donate to the National Trust for Canada, you are helping people save places that matter to them. And, you are helping to empower the next generation of heritage champions.
You help people like the dedicated team behind the Belle Vue House in Amherstburg, Ontario. They turned to the Trust for advice on running their capital fundraising campaign to save a beloved local landmark along their waterfront that had been neglected for decades.
You give young scholars, like Yuki Naganuma (2017 Herb Stovel Scholar), an opportunity to travel, network and enrich their research.
Every day communities are losing their historic places due to desertion, decay, and demolition.
Demolishing historic buildings cuts the heart and soul out of our communities. It also sends building material to landfill – to the tune of 10 million tons each year! In a 30-year period, Canadians lost more than 20% of their pre-1920 historic places. Many more are threatened by neglect, weak legislation, development pressures, and lack of funding.
Working together with donors, like you, we can stem this tide.
Donate today to help people in communities save places that matter and support the next generation of heritage leaders.
