Banting House Acquisition Fund
Banting House National Historic Site is owned and operated by Diabetes Canada and does not receive core funding for its operations from any level of government. With such financial limitations, we simply are not in a position to access funds quickly enough when important objects appear on the market. Since 1999, when the Banting House Acquisition Fund was established, we have made great progress in addressing this problem.
As a result of the generosity of many corporate and individual donors who have provided financial support to this fund, we have been able to acquire significant items related to Banting’s life and career that were at risk of being lost, acquired by private collectors, or potentially leaving the country. The successful acquisition of Banting’s Memorial Cross ($88,500) is a testament to the success of this initiative.
The building and maintaining of a collection is the purpose of any museum and this fund has been invaluable. A complement to our private donation program, this fund assists our ability to continue to build our collection and, equally important, provide the funds necessary to undertake any conservation work related to a particular acquisition.
To support this fund, contact Museum Curator Grant Maltman at 519-673-1752 ext. 226. You can also email Grant at firstname.lastname@example.org; please use “Banting House Acquisition Fund” in the subject line.
