Canada Agriculture Museum
Getting Involved



Over half a million people visit our Museums each year, attracted by our extensive collection of artifacts ranging from combines to computers, lasers to locomotives, classic cars to vintage air planes and by imaginative and educational interactive exhibits and year-round animation and demonstration activities. Making a donation to our organization is an opportunity for you to join forces with the Canada Science and Technology Museum, the Canada Aviation and Space Museum and the Canada Agriculture Museum. Together we can ensure that these artifacts are preserved and that we continue to deliver programs that promote Canada's scientific, aeronautical and agricultural history.

Gift Options

The Museum has many causes to which you can direct a donation.

Where it is most needed:
By contributing to this fund, your donation is used where it is needed most at the time it is received.

Activities, programs, acquisitions:
By contributing to this fund, your donation supports the Museum in its mission to show a mainly urban audience where people get their food, fibre and other agricultural products, and the role of science and technology in agriculture. Our farm operations are at the heart of our programming and consist of a working dairy herd, sheep, pigs, goats, chickens, rabbits, geese, horses and a donkey. Your donation to the livestock and collection acquisitions supports the display and interpretation of a variety of breeds of farm animals, including modern commercial breeds as well as rare and historic breeds.

Donation or sale of artifacts / objects

All of our Museums share a common objective: to help people understand the transformation of Canadian life resulting from science and technology. To do this the Corporation acquires, displays and preserves representative objects, devices, documents, photographs, technical drawings, and other artifacts of our technological history. Some of these come from businesses and corporations, but many more are donated or sold to the Corporation by individuals like you.

We appreciate your interest in helping to preserve Canada's technological heritage and build our collections, whether through donation or sale. To find out more, please have a look at our guide: Guide to Donating or Selling Objects.

Planned Giving

More and more Canadians are choosing to support their favourite cause through deferred or planned giving. This allows an individual or family to make a substantial gift to the Museums that would not otherwise be possible. For more information, please call 613-993-7457.

Corporate Gifts

We actively pursue support from corporations, foundations and other groups. If your organization wishes to make a donation to the Canada Science and Technology Museum, Canada Aviation and Space Museum or the Canada Agriculture Museum, please contact our fundraising senior officer at 613-993-7457.
