About our donors
Our work depends entirely on donations from supporters who share our concern for the environment. We are supported by 29,000 donors, more than 10,000 of whom contribute modest amounts every month. In 2011/12, a majority of our funding (59%) came from individual donors. Foundations and businesses provided another 25% and 13% respectively. This diverse funding model allows us to be independent and represent a broad spectrum of Canadians.
We publish a list of all donors who give $10,000 or more to the Foundation online in our annual reports.
In 2011/12 we received 95% of our funding from Canadian donors. Although the vast majority of our supporters are Canadian, we are grateful to donors in the U.S. and beyond who share our goal of finding ways to live within the limits of nature. We are a registered charity in the U.S. as well as Canada.
