Donations to the CHA


Support Historical Research in Canada

Thanks to donors’ support, the CHA can continue to pursue its work on behalf of its members and the historical community in general. Amongst other things, the CHA pursues a number of academic and professional activities for the benefit of its members, it sponsors a vast array of publications, it represents the interests of historians and the heritage community by actively lobbying archives, museums, governments and granting agencies and intervenes on issues relating to copyright, access to information, academic freedom and public access to historical documents.

General Fund ($CAD):

The donations invested in the General Fund allow the CHA to fulfill its most urgent needs. Donations to the CHA are tax deductible. The CHA will issue tax receipts for donations $25 and greater.

Legal Fund ($CAD):

The CHA Legal Fund is a fund designed to assist members in good standing to offset the costs of legal action surrounding issues of copyright, plagiarism and libel.  Priority is given to those cases where the professional interests of all historians are at stake.  The fund is supported by donations and accrued interest.  Regular membership fees are not allocated to the legal fund.

Why should I donate to it?

Even if you never foresee yourself facing legal action, the existence of the legal fund is a benefit to all historians and those who undertake historical work.  It allows the CHA to support important legal cases that define the boundaries of our practice and protect the rights of our members.  In the digital age it is imperative that historians are involved in issues surrounding copyright, plagiarism, and libel which affect us all.  It is a fund that is only drawn upon sparingly and cautiously, but its existence is vital to the profession.

How is the fund used?

Since it was established in 1979, the CHA has carefully managed this fund as a separate account and its usage is subject to strict policies and procedures for determining if a legal case should be supported in the interest of the profession as a whole.  Currently, only interest generated from the fund can be used to support cases, therefore we preserve our capital for future generations.  The amounts in the fund are reported to the membership annually by the Treasurer.

Student Travel Fund ($CAD):

The Student Travel Fund is a discretionary financial support to provide support for students to present papers at the CHA Annual Meeting.
