Your financial contribution helps the society undertake new projects, offer quality programming and engage in public outreach. Donations can be made at any time—either when you renew or purchase a membership or at any point during the year—and can go to:
- General: support for the ongoing operating expenses of the society
- Library Fund: the purchase of resources for the genealogy departments of Ottawa-area libraries
- Research Fund: support for periodic research projects undertaken and supported by the society
In addition to donations, you can make bequests, donations of securities or gifts of life insurance.
BIFHSGO is a registered charity; all donations made to the society are eligible for income tax receipts. If you make a donation, you will receive a receipt with the charitable registration number on it.
You can make a donation to BIFHSGO through this website (see below) or through CanadaHelps.
You can make a donation at the same time as you purchase a membership. If you are a BIFHSGO member, please log in (top of home page) before making your donation.
