There are many ways that you can assist the Ogniwo Museum in its mission:

Donation of Funds

There is a very creative element to volunteering at a museum – coming up with exhibit themes, selecting the artifacts, and then putting the actual display together. There is also a precision aspect – research, ensuring accuracy of facts, cataloguing artifacts and making sure that they are safely stored.

One aspect that is not always considered is the financial. There are numerous expenses that are part of operating a non-profit organization. From the creativity involved in mounting exhibits to the day to day requirements of maintaining the actual building that houses the museum and its collections, there are constant financial demands.

In order to continue to stay vibrant, we are always looking for heroes to help us out. We welcome your financial donations. Each contribution is eligible for a charitable receipt that can be applied to your next income tax return.



Donation of Artefacts

Don’t have time to hold a garage sale? Feel like cleaning out your attic? Please don’t throw away those historic artefacts! We are searching for a wide variety of artefacts including:

• Photographs, Letters, Books, Songs (both sheet music and recordings)
• Home furnishings, Paintings, Wood Carvings, Emboidery
• Army memorabilia (e.g., uniforms, medals, etc.)
• Clothing, including Polish regional costumes

The Ogniwo Museum will ensure that donated artefacts will be maintained with the greatest care.

Your donation will have a significant impact on future generations of Canadians.
