Established in 2012, the Selkirk Heritage Endowment Fund was established by the City of Selkirk as a perpetual endowment fund that will support the ongoing operational costs of a new municipal heritage museum.

Until such a museum is established, the fund provides annual grants to the Marine Museum of Manitoba and the city’s museum, which is hosted online at this time.
