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 is Canada's grassroots voice for wilderness. Founded in 1963, CPAWS has helped protect over 400,000 square kilometres of threatened areas. The British Columbia Chapter was founded in 1979, and is one of 13 CPAWS Chapters. CPAWS is a non-profit membership-based conservation organization, and it remains the only national non-profit organization devoted exclusively to protecting Canada's wilderness heritage.
