Diversity gives us strength
Donors make our work possible. We are proud that so many individual Canadians personally invest in our mission. The majority of our funding (56 per cent) comes from individual donors. Of these 27,000+ individuals, more than 9,000 contribute every month. We're also grateful to the foundations and businesses that provide another 29 per cent and 13 per cent of our revenue respectively. As in the natural environment, we believe that diversity in our funding base gives us strength!
Although the vast majority of our supporters are Canadian, donors in the U.S. and beyond also share our goal of finding ways to live within the limits of nature. As a registered charitable organization on both sides of the Canada/U.S. border, our income from non-Canadian sources has comprised as much as 10 per cent of our annual total in recent years. In 2010/11 we received 94 per cent of our funding from Canadian donors.
