From 1995 through 2020, we invested in more than 500 organizations across the Northwest, far more than we can list here. We are deeply grateful for the vision, passion, and hard work of each of these groups. No one does this work alone, and we thank the boards, staffs, volunteers, and supporters who made this work possible. Explore below to learn more about some of the groups we funded.
The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) is Canada's only nationwide charity dedicated solely to the protection of public lands, oceans, freshwater, and ensuring our parks are managed to protect the nature within them. In the past 50+ years, they've played a lead role in protecting over half a million square kilometres—an area bigger than New Brunswick, Newfoundland, and Labrador put together!
