Make a Donation

When you donate to Heritage Ottawa, you are helping to preserve heritage buildings, neighbourhoods, main streets, and urban parks -- the places that give meaning to where we live. 

Help us reach our annual goal of raising $50,000 

Why donate to Heritage Ottawa? Because we're the only city-wide organization that speaks up for heritage properties that are threatened in the rush to demolish what's old in order to build new. We encourage sustainable development that adapts old buildings to new uses rather than discarding them to landfill. 

It's a labour of love, based mainly on thousands of hours of volunteer commitment. Even with that support, keeping our dynamic not-for-profit organization running in an increasingly complex environment is time-consuming, and costly. 

How Your Donation Helps

Your financial support helps Heritage Ottawa to: 

  • speak out for heritage places at risk of demolition or inappropriate redevelopment
  • offer services and expertise to building owners, community groups, City planning staff, and the media in support of forward-looking heritage projects
  • fund awareness-raising programs to educate our neighbours about heritage
  • invest in connecting with and motivating people through our communications platforms

Your contribution will be an investment in a proven, award-winning organization that has been championing the preservation of Ottawa's heritage for over 50 years.
