The Kawartha Region Arts & Heritage Society was established in 1990 to foster the cultural heritage of the City of Kawartha Lakes and operates Kawartha Settlers’ Village. We rely on public donations as a source of income and as a registered charity, we are authorized to issue tax receipts of $20 or more. In October of 2012, the Board of Directors established a Capital Reserve Fund in which monies may be used to purchase new furniture and equipment, the construction of new buildings, site improvements, building alterations or renovations, or major repairs (ie. a new roof). The funds in this account will not be used for operating expenses. If you are planning a gift or a gift in memory, please email the office and we can designate the gifts into this fund.
Kawartha Settlers’ Village is grateful to the many people who have generously donated artifacts but due to limited storage, we can only be selective on what we can accept. If you would like to donate something please email us with a picture and details of the artifact and someone will get in touch with you.
