The Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy is a registered charity whose mission is:
to establish, maintain and manage a system of nature reserves in the area of the Niagara Escarpment (including the Niagara Escarpment World Biosphere Reserve), including the maintenance of physical features of scientific and/or ecological, cultural, historic or scenic interest; to maintain, enhance or restore areas of native species or natural habitat: and to encourage and support scientific research and educational services related thereto; and
to educate the public about conservation and preservation of the landscape, ecology and wildlife of the Niagara Escarpment partly through providing low impact, ecologically sustainable recreational opportunities which complement and do not substantially conflict with this objective.
Your contribution makes it possible for Canadian land trusts and American Friends to permanently protect Canada’s lakes, rivers, shorelines, wetlands, forests, for the benefit or fish, wildlife, and all of us.
American Friends assists organizations dedicated to protecting Canada’s iconic landscapes by accepting gifts of cash, securities and land from US taxpayers who recommend grants to American Friends’ partners. American Friends is recognized by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service as a publicly-supported charity; therefore gifts to American Friends are tax deductible to U.S. taxpayers
By selecting Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy from the list below you can recommend that your donation (minus a small percentage retained by American Friends to cover costs of administering its grant program) be used to make a grant to a specific Canadian conservation organization. Grantees meet American Friends’ strict eligibility criteria and are in good standing with American Friends. Please read the terms for making grant recommendations to American Friends. (If your favorite Canadian conservation charity is not listed, encourage them to contact American Friends.)
