Why Support American Friends of Canadian Conservation with your Financial Gift?
American Friends of Canadian Conservation connects people from the U.S. and Canada who are passionate about protecting Canada’s natural and cultural heritage. Financial contributions from people like you who appreciate Canada’s lakes, rivers, shorelines, wetlands, forests, and wildlife are essential to ensure the permanent protection of landscapes cherished by citizens of both our countries.
Your financial support is leveraged by gifts of priority conservation properties, extensive pro-bono services provided by a network of individuals, and fees-for-services. Your contribution is important because American Friends receives no government funding and is not eligible for grants from Canadian foundations. 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 give online to support American Friends using a credit or debit card, or by sending a check to the address below, or donating securities or even real estate that is suitable for sale. Contact us for assistance and instructions.
Contributions to Support Canadian Conservation Organizations
You can request that American Friends use your contribution to assist a Canadian organization dedicated to protecting Canada’s iconic landscapes. Like a donor-advised fund, American Friends accepts gifts of cash and securities from US taxpayers who want to underwrite preservation efforts in Canada and makes grants to qualified partners based on donors’ recommendations.
Choose from the list of eligible grantees when you give online, or fill out the grant recommendation form and send it with your check to the address below. American Friends is a U.S. 501(c)(3) publicly-supported charity, therefore your gift is tax deductible in the U.S.
Thank you for including American Friends of Canadian Conservation and its partners in your current and future charitable giving. Please refer to American Friends of Canadian Conservation Case For Support for more information about how your gift will advance our work and partnerships.
