Historical societies or museum organizations in Canada often establish trusts or foundations to secure long term non-governmental financial support from the community at large;  it also gives the society a measure of fiscal independence.  The Wolfville Historical Society established its Memorial Foundation in 1993 to receive donations and bequests in memory of deceased citizens of Wolfville.  They created a Civic Memorial Book to record and preserve the lifetime contributions made by these citizens to the community.  The book allows past and future readers to understand and appreciate the contribution these citizens have made to Wolfville.  Each entry occupies a single page in the book.  The book is displayed in the Randall House Museum, during open hours, or by appointment.

Family, friends or community organizations can nominate people to remember.  The Trustees of the Foundation are responsible for accepting and selecting names for entry in the book, undertaking research, writing and editing citations and preparing them for entry into the book.  The Trustees correspond with those sponsoring the page to ensure accuracy.

Please contact the Society if you wish to discuss the placing of a new page or wish to make a donation or a bequest to the Foundation.  The Society is a registered charitable organization and provides official receipts for donors’ income tax purposes.
