Donation Process

To donate to the collection, please contact us. 


Unfortunately, we cannot accept donations without an appointment.

The Strathcona County Heritage Foundation is responsible for gathering, safeguarding, advocating, and exhibiting the historical and cultural heritage of Strathcona County, achieved through the management of the Strathcona County Museum & Archives. Items offered for donation should possess a credible link to Strathcona County, encompassing its inhabitants and history. On occasion, we may accept items that don't strictly adhere to this criterion to enrich our educational collection, which is utilized in hands-on programs and outreach initiatives. However, our capacity for storage is limited, which may influence our ability to accept certain donations.

Review Process

The Acquisitions Committee will review potential donations based on two criteria: 

1. The item supports the Strathcona County Museum & Archives mission

2. Strathcona County Museum & Archives can adequately care for, house, and potentially exhibit the item

After the item is accepted by the Acquisitions Committee, it is accessioned into the collection. Accessioning is a process by which the donated materials are added to the collection and become the property of Strathcona County Museum & Archives/ Strathcona County Heritage Foundation through a signed Deed of Gift.

Please note that Strathcona County Museum & Archives does not perform appraisals.
