PETERBOROUGH, ONT. — The Canadian Canoe Museum has issued a formal expression of interest (EOI) and is reaching out to the construction community for support in the form of gifts in-kind as a component of its capital campaign for a new facility.
The museum is looking to identify potential partners in the construction community — trades, suppliers and contractors — who would like to support the new museum through the donation of services, labour and/or materials, states a release.
Gifts in-kind could include labour and materials, including but not limited to, concrete, carpentry, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, landscape, lumber, millwork, fixtures and furniture.
“Large-scale construction projects like this one rely on gifts in-kind and the support of businesses, small and large, to bring them to fruition. We look forward to hearing from those who are interested in joining us in this extraordinary endeavour,” said Shirlanne Pawley-Boyd, director of philanthropy, in a statement.
Responses to the EOI are due by July 16. Proposed gifts in-kind will be considered by the museum, its architects, engineers and specialist consultants.
The EOI is available on the museum’s website at canoemuseum.ca.
