The Maritime Museum of BC Launches the “Float the Boat” Fundraising Campaign

MMBC Float The Boat Campaign

Mar 13, 2022

The Maritime Museum of BC is running their second annual fundraising campaign called “Float the Boat”. This campaign has a goal of $25,000 and will run from March 1 to April 30, 2022. Throughout the campaign the museum will be marking milestones by filling the tank below with water to float the boat higher and higher. We’ll be posting updates so make sure to follow along!

As a registered charity and incorporated non-profit the Maritime Museum of BC runs a variety of public programming and engagement initiatives, all with the goal of promoting and preserving BC’s maritime heritage and culture. In order to keep the programming and exhibit rates accessible to the public they rely on the help of grants and private donations.

“COVID continues to cause all sorts of uncertainties, but we have learned to pivot and adjust accordingly” said Brittany Vis, Executive Director at the Maritime Museum of BC. “We’re so excited about the plans for this year including a diverse roster of evening speakers, new community-based exhibits, and expanded in-person programming. As COVID restrictions lift, we look forward to welcoming more people to take part in these activities.”

The Maritime Museum of BC is a multi-disciplinary organization. It cares for a collection, provides exhibits, and helps educate/entertain the public through a variety of programming. These areas have been broken into different categories to demonstrate some of the ongoing costs associated with each one. The museum is asking people to consider donating to one of these areas by selecting them in the drop-down menu on the donation page (visible after entering an amount to donate). If someone wants to contribute to the museum in general, they can simply select the “General” category and enter the amount of their choice.
