Thank you for considering a donation to the Canadian Friends Historical Association. CFHA is a registered non-profit charitable organization. Charitable donation tax receipts will be provided for all donations of $20 and above.
Financial contributions such as yours are essential to the well-being and success of the organization. CFHA is the only national organization dedicated to the preservation and communication of the history and faith of Quakers in Canada and their ongoing contribution to the Canadian experience. While we have made considerable progress, much remains to be done.
CFHA receives the support of many members and individuals who volunteer their time and talent. However, it is only through the generous financial contributions received from donors that allows us to cover overhead costs while maintaining free public access to our transcriptions, publications, and programs. Annual membership dues received cover only a portion of the annual budget.
In the past several years CFHA has modernized and adapted new technologies. This has included implementation of membership administration software and electronic fund transfer options, and a complete reconfiguration of our website. Our next project is the CFHA Digital Archives, an essential resource uniquely dedicated to the collection and preservation of irreplaceable heritage documentation.
When you contribute to CFHA you also support our efforts to communicate the faith and practice of Friends since the emergence of the Religious Society of Friends in the 17th century. The popular educational Who are the Quakers? display panels support our own outreach activities and those of Canadian meetings. Our next project in this realm is a new 8-panel set detailing the life and ministry of Quaker founder George Fox.
Your contribution also supports the CFHA Founders Fund, which is available for qualified local preservation projects, and our student scholarship program.
