Great Canadian Giving Challenge

June 1, 2020 - June 30, 2020

CanadaHelps holds the Great Canadian Giving Challenge every June where one charity wins a grand prize of $10,000 to help with their needs. This year they’re increasing the prize to $20,000 to celebrate 2020 and their 20th anniversary and the Welland Museum needs your help.

Every $1 donated to the Welland Museum through CanadaHelps in the month of June is an entry into draw for the grand prize. So, if you donate $20, that’s 20 chances for us to win $20,000.

$20,000 could do so much for the museum. We could update the children’s gallery, purchase some much needed archival equipment, upgrade our storage, or bring in some new traveling exhibits.

Your donations through the month of June will help the Welland Museum so much in achieving our goals and will give us the chance to win funds that could do so much more.

The Welland Museum is a not for profit charitable organization operating independently from the City of Welland. The museum would not be able to operate without the donations, sponsorships, and grants from individuals and corporations throughout the community.

Stay tuned throughout the month as we share more details on exactly how your donations can help and what we could do with the grand prize of $20,000.

* Donations must be made via or – minimum $3 donation required – and only donations made from June 1 – June 30 will count as entries.

A Note from our Chair

During this time of such uncertainty it is sometimes hard to see where the future will take us, as individuals, as families and as a community.

It is through these times that we learn and understand what may come from our history. The Welland Museum’s Board and staff are committed to making sure our story is told. That said, we could never do it without your support and input and for that we are grateful. WHM is a not-for-profit charitable organization where your donations count. We appreciate them and are happy to provide you with a taxable receipt*.

Thank you again for all your support and contributions that put us in a better place to serve you and the community.

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you ASAP.
