The Georgina Historical Society, as a not-for-profit organization, collects, preserves, promotes and interprets the rich history and heritage of all communities now known as the Town of Georgina.

Donations & Sponsorship

Your Goods

The Georgina Historical Society has worked hard over the years to ensure that artifacts found throughout the Pioneer Village are historically accurate and represent pioneer life in early Georgina. If you have an artifact or documents relating to Georgina that you wish to donate to the Pioneer Village & Archives, please contact the curator of the the Pioneer Village, Melissa Matt, by emailing her at curator@georgina.ca. She can assist you with the donation process.

 

Your Money

The money deposited in the red “Admission by Donation” box at the Georgina Pioneer Village goes to the Town of Georgina for the purpose of building and grounds maintenance. When you buy something at the Welcome Centre, the money goes directly to the Georgina Historical Society to help fund their annual public events.

Additional financial donations to the Georgina Historical Society are welcome and will help us to maintain our documented history of Georgina. One long-term project we are working on is the complete digitization of our archives so these records can be searched electronically on the Internet. Any financial contribution to this endeavor would be most welcome, and can be made by sending a cheque to:
Georgina Historical Society
P. O. Box 282,
Sutton ON
L0E 1R0.

Amounts above $20 entitle you to a receipt for Income Tax purposes.

 

Your Time

The Georgina Historical Society is involved in running and volunteering at several events that benefit and support the community. We can always use extra hands at special events as well as year round. If you would like to donate your time, please fill out our volunteer form here.
