Giving the Past a Future: Donate to the
Jewish Heritage Centre Archival Endowment Fund

The Jewish Heritage Centre of Western Canada (JHCWC) safeguards a treasure trove of archives accessed each year by people from all over the world. We count on the interest and generosity of the community to help us preserve these precious representations of our history so that future generations may also learn from our past.

Current levels of funding simply do not support our needs. Unless we are able to ensure proper storage and archival treatment, we risk losing our collections forever. That will mean the loss of our community’s history. 

Your help is critical to the preservation and stewardship of our community’s historical assets.


In a world where the historical record is increasingly under threat, our impressive collection of primary sources, including oral histories, photographs, and artefacts will ensure the preservation of our past as well as its legacy for future generations.

Your donation to the Jewish Heritage Centre Archival Endowment Fund will provide a reliable source of income that will continue to grow, providing a revenue stream for the maintenance of these community treasures. This endowment fund housed at the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba (JFM) will protect the archival assets of our community: a precious legacy for future generations.

Thank you for your support!
