Benefits of Joining the FCWM
The principle benefit of being a Friend is the satisfaction of contributing to the growth and development of a Museum devoted to the preservation of a unique and important element of Canadian social history. But you will quickly discover the satisfaction of working with other dedicated volunteers who share your interests.
Friends receive a tax-deductible receipt for their membership fee. All other donations are also fully tax-deductible. You will be able to keep abreast of Friends activities and projects, and Museum-related events, using this Website. Among other things, we publish our newsletter here, but, if you wish, you can receive your own hard copy.
You can become a Friend of the War Museum by completing the on-line application form, and by paying the annual membership fee.
To support our mission of supporting the Canadian War Museum in its mission to educate, preserve and commemorate Canada’s military history, we need volunteers. The Friends are all volunteers; we raise funds for acquisitions and programs, we provide interpreters in the galleries and we help conduct special events at the Museum. We invite you to join us.
Volunteering with the FCWM can take take many forms. We try to utilize the talents our volunteers bring. They labour diligently in the “tank shop” on the restoration of vehicles and other equipment. Click HERE for a video on the unveiling of the restored Fordson Food Van. They can also be found in the Research Centre and in the archives performing painstaking historical research on behalf of the Museum. Others work on the myriad administrative duties associated with the Friends of the Canadian War Museum, as members of the Board of Directors or as Committee members; looking after the office, the FCWM web site, the book store, etc. - tasks all integral to the FCWM support of the Canadian War Museum.
