Donations help us keep Fort Steele alive and vibrant!  Whether it’s support for one animal, a building, or a general donation, they all add up! Does your company like to support not for profit organizations? Sponsorships are welcome! Donations are tax receiptable and every little bit counts.  The Friends of Fort Steele made history in 2008 with the establishment of permanent endowment fund, in partnership with the Cranbrook &  District Community Foundation. Fundraising exceeded expectations and by year end the fund held $56,000 thanks to a matching funds grant awarded from the BC Arts Renaissance Fund. As this fund grows it will contribute significantly to the sustainability of operations as well as the lasting legacy of Fort Steele’s greatest assets, its historical buildings, by supporting on-going restoration and preservation work. If you would like to make a donation we can be contacted by phone at 250.417.6000 or in writing to 9851 Hwy 93/95, Fort Steele, BC, V0B 1N0.  Donations can also be made to the Cranbrook & District Community Foundation located in Cranbrook, BC.
