Invest in Bishop Home

Donations to Billy Bishop Home: Museum, Archives, and National Historic Site are an investment that benefits our immediate and global community and provides the means to create exhibits, programs, and events of National excellence.
As a result of your philanthropy, Billy Bishop Home & Museum has been able to evolve as a National Historic Site with a collection and exhibits that bring vital recognition to the history of Canadian aviation, Canadian icon and flying ace Billy Bishop, and recognition to the contributions of our Veterans, as well as the men and women currently in service for Canada. Donors make it possible to expand educational and outreach programs that deeply impact our community, region, and as we embrace digital engagement, international learning platforms.

If you would like to invest in our history and the future of Billy Bishop Home: Museum, Archives, and National Historic Site, we would be thrilled to work with you to ensure that your investments help fulfill our commitment to history and heritage. We look forward to working with you.
