The Manitoba Agricultural Museum is a charitable organization and gratefully welcomes donations, both financial or in-kind.

Tax receipts can be issued for financial and in-kind donations to the museum and follow the Canada Revenue Agency regulations.

A Collecting Pause …

After many decades of collecting, the museum has made the decision to place a temporary moratorium (pause) on acquiring new items. This moratorium will be in place until June 2024. This period will allow the curatorial staff to perform an extensive assessment of our collections, policies, and procedures. Any unsolicited items for donation will not be accepted during this time, and drop-offs without appointment will not be considered.

In very limited cases, exceptions to the moratorium may be made for items of significant historical importance. If you still wish for your artifacts to be considered, please fill out a donation interest form and submit it to Forms will be evaluated four times a year.

Thank you for your interest in supporting Manitoba Agricultural Museum through item donation. As an accredited museum, Manitoba Agricultural Museum has a stewardship role in preserving our historical assets that include our vast collection of diverse objects. The collection is largely made up of items donated by people like you, and these objects help us tell the story of agriculture in the province of Manitoba.

If you wish to support the care of Manitoba Agricultural Museum’s historical collections through a monetary donation, please see below and designate “curatorial” as the specific use.

Manitoba Heritage Trust Program

To support the financial stability of the Manitoba Agricultural Museum, the museum established permanent endowment funds that provide consistent annual funding to support its mission.

The Manitoba Heritage Trust endowment fund supports our efforts to bring Manitoba’s agricultural heritage to life, helping us to maintain museum artifacts that are the feature of events such as the Manitoba Threshermen’s Reunion and Stampede.

Note that every donation is matched through the Manitoba Government Heritage Trust Program. Contact the museum for more details.

Donations are processed by The Winnipeg Foundation.

Heritage Harvest Growing Project

Since 2017 the museum and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB) have jointly fundraised through the Heritage Harvest Growing Project. Using a 65 acre field owned by the museum, a CFGB committee farms the land with proceeds from the crop shared between the organizations. 

All funds raised are stretched by government programs. The federal government stretches funds provided to CFGB up to 4:1 basis and the Manitoba Government stretches museum funds on a 2:1 basis through the Heritage Trust Program.

Goal: $150,000
Raised: $45,000
Need: $105,000

Please contact the museum office for donations.
