The Fonds Centre du patrimoine, originally known as Fonds institutionnel de la Société historique de Saint-Boniface, was created in 1995 to ensure financial sustainability for the preservation and the promotion of francophone and Métis heritage in Western Canada and to meet the financial needs of the Centre du patrimoine

Objectives of the endowment fund: Support the activities of the Centre du patrimoine in the sectors of acquisition, processing, preserving and promoting francophone and Métis archives of Western Canada; support marketing activities of the Centre du patrimoine aimed at the public at large; support the special projects of the Société historique de Saint-Boniface in the fields of genealogy, research, publication and Web site development, training and capital investment. Donations are transferred to the endowment fund increasing its capital which is never used to fund projects but remains forever as endowment capital; only the generated interests are used from year to year by the Centre du patrimoine. Your donations will go a long way in ensuring the preservation and promotion of francophone and Métis heritage. 

On 31 December 2014 the endowment fund was at $339 294.
