Financial donation

The Museum is owned and physically maintained by the City of Vancouver; all other expenses, including staffing, insurance, parking rental, collections maintenance and purchase, are borne by the Roedde House Preservation Society.

Like many small museums across Canada, Roedde House depends largely on the financial support of the community to maintain its valuable events, programs and collections. We invite you to express your support for Vancouver’s only house-museum and become a donor.

While Roedde House is increasingly dependent on donations to cover yearly operating expenses, an opportunity has been established for donors interested in long-term support for the Museum.The late Cydney Rae Holcomb was the great-granddaughter of Gustav and Matilda Roedde and granddaughter of Gustav Jr. Upon her death, Roedde House Museum was a beneficiary of her estate and the monies were placed with the Vancouver Foundation. While the capital is protected, the income from the Roedde House Preservation Fund will help to sustain the Museum’s operations.

We hope that Cydney’s generosity will inspire others to follow her example by remembering Roedde House during their estate planning. There can be significant tax savings in providing such a benefit. Additions to the fund can be accepted by the Foundation directly and the Foundation will issue receipts for the purpose of the Income Tax Act.
