Your contribution supports permanent protection of lakes, rivers, shorelines, wetlands, and forests in some of Canada’s most beloved and threatened regions.

American Friends of Canadian Conservation operates like a donor-advised fund – accepting gifts of cash, securities and land from US taxpayers who recommend grants to qualified partner organizations. American Friends is a U.S. 501(c)(3) publicly-supported charity; therefore your donation is tax deductible in the U.S.

You can donate directly to American Friends or to support one of American Friends’ partner organizations, select the name from the list below. Your choice indicates that you recommend your donation (minus a small percentage retained by American Friends to cover costs of administering its grant program) be used to make a grant to that Canadian organization. The website will issue a receipt and an official gift acknowledgement letter for tax purposes will follow via email. Please read the terms for making grant recommendations to American Friends.
