The Courtenay Museum started a crowdfunding campaign mid-summer 2016 to raise the roof at Capes Escape. We aimed for a fall redo of the roof of this great historic home and 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.
Thank You, Merci, Obrigada, Arigato! to all of the donors who made this project possible. As of October, a new roof is on and the museum raised over $6,000 from generous donations.
