In 1984 a group of ladies headed by Elizabeth Little and Cora Skipsey got together to form the Qualicum Beach Historical & Museum Society. We continue to build on that legacy today. In the years since the Museum’s inception, our population has grown significantly and the Museum has become a cornerstone of this vibrant community. Funds donated to the QB Museum will be used to pave the road to a sustainable future with improved programs, exhibits and grounds. And there has never been a better time to donate to YOUR Museum! The Town of Qualicum Beach has agreed to match
donations ‘dollar for dollar’ up to a total of $15,000. Help us keep the stories alive for future generations – we offer a range of options and look forward to your support!

JOIN THE ‘FRIENDS OF QB MUSEUM’ MONTHLY DONOR PROGRAM
As a Friend of the QB Museum you make regular monthly donations for as little or as much as you wish. Donated funds are used to increase Museum programs and exhibits, and support ongoing projects such as the perimeter and grounds enhancement, and the implementation of our revitalization project to ensure we are making the best use of the space available. All donations are tax deductible and tax receipts are issued annually. Donors are recognized in our regular newsletter and on our Donor Wall inside the Museum.
Be a community leader by offering your corporate sponsorship to the QB Museum. As a corporate sponsor your name and logo will appear on our website,
social media sites, newsletters and on our donor wall. Each year thousands of people visit our Museum; we have hundreds of followers on facebook; and, our website receives 100 hits a day on average.
