Donations & Sponsorship
The Yukon Transportation Museum’s mission is to tell stories of Yukoners' ingenuity and self-sufficiency through the history of transportation in the Yukon.
Our mandate is to identify, acquire, preserve and conserve the history, cultural material and artifacts of Yukon’s transportation modes and to interpret this history in an educational manner for all Yukoners and visitors alike.
YTM is a not-for-profit society operated by a volunteer board of directors. We are also a registered Charitable Organization and all donations are tax deductible.
All revenues raised through admissions, rentals and museum shop sales go directly in the operational costs of the museum. Your donation will help offset increasing costs.
If you have an object (e.g. artifact, photograph, journal, vehicle, etc.) that you feel would be a good fit with the mission and mandate of the Yukon Transportation Museum, we would love to hear from you. Please call Casey McLaughlin, Executive Director or Janna Swales, Director of Collections & Research to discuss your potential donation at (867) 668-4792.
