The Heritage Community Foundation is a charitable Trust
(Charitable Number: 87082 2541 RR0001) committed to connecting
people with heritage. As a new kind of community foundation, it is
not bounded by geography but based on interest in the value of
heritage for individuals, their communities and society.
The Foundation has already received recognition for its
state-of-the-art programs involving new technology and experiential
learning. Working collaboratively with public and private-sector
partners, the Foundation seeks support not only for its own flagship
programs but also for those of partners and stakeholders at the
local, regional, provincial and national levels.
The Foundation's goal is for heritage to be valued by everyone.
Heritage is broadly defined in all its aspects—historical, natural,
cultural, scientific and technological. The Foundation exists:
To be a strong public voice for heritage.
To build individual and community identity and pride through
research, public education and youth programs.
To build resources to sustain heritage institutions,
organizations and related projects and activities.
The Heritage Community Foundation has the following primary areas
of interest based on its charitable objects: Youth Programs, Public
Education and Research. All programs link people with place,
stories, objects, landscapes, traditions—all of those aspects that
define us as individuals and communities.
