Donations & Fundraising

Donations and Fundraising

For six decades, Baile nan Gàidheal | Highland Village has worked hard to share and promote within its community, and to visitors, Nova Scotia's rich Gaelic language, culture and identity. The Society has grown Highland Village from a concept; to a log museum building and outdoor stage; to a living history museum and cultural centre with language and interpretive programs, 11 period (animated) buildings, modern support buildings, farm program and much, much more. The successes that the Highland Village has experienced could not have occurred without the support of its donors.

Your gift to the Nova Scotia Highland Village Society provides critical support to the museum's programs in language and cultural interpretation, in addition to assisting in preserving its collections and buildings, and conducting important historical research. We hope you will join the countless individuals who have supported the Highland Village and its mission.

The Nova Scotia Highland Village Society is a registered charity with the Canada Revenue Agency. Your donation is tax deductible.
