The West Coast Railway Association (W.C.R.A.) is a volunteer-driven non-profit organization, registered under the Societies Act of British Columbia. With full charitable status through the C.R.A., we issue tax receipts for both cash and appropriate in-kind donations.
The W.C.R.A. and the West Coast Railway Heritage Park receive no operating funding from any level of government, and so rely on cash generated from park operations and donors to operate, develop and restore our large collection of heritage railway rolling stock. Therefore, the W.C.R.A welcomes cash donations or donated contributions or gifts in kind that can be added to our collection.
The W.C.R.A. has many ways you can donate including:
|Donor opportunities||Ideal for:|
