Our community has come together to build a place for gathering and learning to increase the quality of life on the Sunshine Coast for everyone, for generations to come.

Since 2015, about $4.1 million has been raised through the generosity of families and companies from the Sunshine Coast and beyond. Our fundraising efforts continue to secure an additional $650,000 through private, corporate donations and government grants.
Donations of $1,000 or more receive recognition on our Giving Tree, in the reception area of the public market and we also offer recognition and naming opportunities for contributors looking for a higher profile opportunity to be part of the public market story. You can also make a donation in the name or memory of a loved one, we will be happy to honour your wishes in how we recognize and acknowledge your gift.

The Town of Gibsons has identified the public market as a high strategic priority.

As a result, the Town of Gibsons is accepting donations and issuing tax receipts for donors who wish to make a gift of $100 or more towards the construction and equipping of the building.


Please make your cheque payable to the TOWN OF GIBSONS with a notation “Gibsons Public Market” or “Nicholas Sonntag Marine Education Centre” and either drop off or mail to:
Gibsons Public Market
PO Box 191, 473 Gower Point Road,
Gibsons, BC, V0N 1V0
We also welcome donations made over two or three years, instead of one lump sum. Please refer to our pledge form (download here).
