Ways to Support

Make a cash donation

Make a donation to the Diefenbunker Museum once, or pledge to be a recurring donor with a monthly contribution. Cash donations are our most common way of giving, and you will receive an immediate tax credit.

Donations can be made online or in person at the museum.

Gifts or services in kind

As a charitable organization, the Diefenbunker can issue income tax receipts for the fair market value of gifts (artifacts, technology, hardware, software, glassware, paint, etc.) or professional services (consulting, engineering, marketing, etc.) in kind.


The Diefenbunker offers several different sponsorship opportunities including our annual Whisky Tasting Fundraiser, educational programs, and rooms within the museum.

Please contact us to tailor a sponsorship package to fulfill your sponsorship objectives.
