The St. Paul’s Indian Church Preservation Trust Fund, held at the Vancouver Foundation, was established in the early 1980’s when there was an extensive restoration, the first since it was restored in 1909. At that time, with foresight, The Founding Trust Deed was executed and the endowment fund established to provide a consistent stream of income to support the maintenance of the heritage building.
The Trust Deed stated:
“The Trustees shall hold the Trust Fund... to apply the income for some one or more of the following purposes: the continuing repair, preservation, restoration and display of the St. Paul’s Indian Church.”
In order to preserve the character and integrity of the building for future generations, there will always be the need for maintenance and repairs. There were major repairs in 2013 and 2018. To complete the restoration and repairs, The St. Paul’s Indian Church Preservation Trust partnered with Parks Canada and local businesses.
A donation to the St. Paul’s Indian Church Preservation Fund, held at Vancouver Foundation will support the heritage preservation of the building, including repairs and maintenance. Funds will be directed to the ongoing maintenance and restoration as needed to preserve the Church for the use and enjoyment of future generations.
