The Ancient Forest Alliance would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the many outstanding businesses, organizations, and artists who supported our ancient forest campaign in 2019.
A huge thanks the Ball Foundation for their generous support, which strengthened our capacity to engage “non-traditional allies” like recreation and faith groups to broaden support for old-growth protection, and to Patagonia for supporting our efforts to pursue conservation financing solutions for Vancouver Island First Nations through their Environmental Grants Program. Our deepest thanks also to the Calgary Foundation and Smith Share Foundation for your generous contributions to our campaign.
A big thanks to Patagonia Victoria for organizing a hugely successful benefit night for the AFA at the screening of Treeline and for welcoming our canvassers to set up holiday booths. Thank you MEC Victoria for their in-kind gifts and for lending their retail space for our community outreach work. We also deeply appreciate the many local businesses that share their space with our canvassers before and after their shifts. It means so much to our team!
We would like to thank Bough & Antler Northwest Goods for sharing their creative talents to design AFA’s custom logo t-shirts and for donating a portion of proceeds from their business sales; Sea Flora Skincare and Gran Manitou for their generous donations and in-kind gifts; Banyen Books & Sound and to i.O.N Clothing Featuring Hemp and Company for retailing AFA Merchandise in their storefront, Kerrisdale Cameras Victoria for organizing staff fundraisers; and Tribe Archipelago and Elastic Email for your generous monthly contributions.
Thank you to the following businesses and organizations for your generosity and support: Tantalus Design, Island Return it Sidney, Handsome Dan Enterprises, Grumpy Hat, Skye Dreamer, Cadboro Bay United Church, Brentwood College Environmental Club, and Sierra Club BC.
