We never trade or sell email addresses. We only use them to provide you with information from the David Suzuki Foundation. Occasionally we may ask you to donate so we can continue our work. You may stop receiving email at any time by unsubscribing.

Donation information

Mailing addresses of people who donate less than $100 per year may be made available to other non-profits unless you request otherwise. The process of trading information is common among non-profits as a way to reach new people, and receive funds to help continue important work. You may choose to withhold your information by calling 1-800-453-1533 or emailing


We do not accept funding from the government or corporations where it would present a conflict of interest. That way, when we speak on your behalf to effect environmental change, we're not bound by government or corporate influence. Instead, we're committed to our supporters and the planet we're trying to preserve.

Policy updates and changes

We may change this policy from time to time without warning. Changes will be reflected on this page.
