The Courtenay Museum has started a crowdfunding campaign to raise the roof at Capes Escape. We’re aiming for a fall redo of the roof of this great historic home and have teamed up with FundRazr and InvestLocalBC to crowdfund some matching dollars.
In the 1990s, Katherine Capes, one of the first female archaeologists in Canada and a founder of our fifty-five-year-old society, donated her home and seven acres as a legacy in perpetuity to the museum.
Everything is in great shape on the house–except the roof! The estimates we’ve received take us to a total of $10,000. We’re asking donors to help us with half that amount. Your donation, no matter the amount, will help us preserve this wonderful heritage home. For donations of $50 or more, we will provide you with a gift of the Marilyn Timms print of the Capes property “West Coast Retreat”. Thank You, Merci, Obrigada, Arigato!
