American Friends is a unique and innovative collaboration that connects people from the U.S. and Canada who are passionate about protecting Canada’s natural heritage. If you are one of those people, and want to support our bi-national efforts to protect the landscapes and communities that are cherished by citizens of both our countries – and many others – please make a charitable contribution today. You can give online using a credit or debit card, or by sending a check, or donating securities or even real estate that is suitable for sale. Contact us for assistance and instructions.
Your financial support is leveraged by gifts of priority conservation properties and extensive pro-bono services provided by a network of individuals who appreciate Canada’s lakes, rivers, shorelines, wetlands, forests and wildlife. American Friends receives no government funding and is not eligible for grants from Canadian foundations, so your gift is essential. Our conservation projects are located in Canada’s most threatened areas; close the U.S. border, where 90% of Canadians live and work, and American ownership is concentrated. That means your support helps where it is most urgently needed.
You can request that American Friends use your contribution to assist a Canadian organization dedicated to protecting Canada’s iconic landscapes. Choose from the list of eligible grantees when you give online, or by filling out the grant recommendation form. American Friends is recognized by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service as a publicly-supported charity, therefore your gift is tax deductible in the U.S.
Thank you for including American Friends and its partners in your current and future charitable giving. Please refer to American Friends Case For Support for more information about how your gift will advance our work and partnerships.
