Donations by Businesses, Artists & Organizations

Thanks to the generous support of donors, the Ancient Forest Alliance has quickly grown to become BC’s leading grassroots organization working for the protection of endangered old-growth forests and forestry jobs across the province.  

In the past several years since the AFA was founded, the local small business community along with artists and other organizations has bolstered the AFA’s important work through many fundraising initiatives ranging from yoga studio Karma Classes, gift raffles, ‘Haircut not Clearcut’ salon fundraisers, in kind donations, proceeds from products or services to music festivals, concerts and special event benefits.  See below for a full list of businesses, artists and other groups who have supported the AFA so far.

We look forward to working with many more such supporters in 2016 and beyond as we pursue our ambitious goal of ensuring legislated protection for endangered old-growth forests across the province!

Thanks to our 2015 Donors!
In 2015, the AFA received significant support from a variety of granting programs and creative fundraisers.  We are very grateful for the major support provided by Mountain Equipment Co-op’s Community Contributions Grants and MEC Victoria’s vote of preferred organizations, LUSH Handmade Cosmetics’ Charity Pot program, Patagonia's Grassroots Environmental Grants program, and Patagonia Victoria - Elements' 1% for the Planet contributions. 

We would like to also extend our deepest gratitude to Nick Temos of the Pacific Northwest Collective for piloting four incredible aerial flights over Vancouver Island this year that helped us document remote ancient forests and old-growth logging from above.
We are very excited to be a new beneficiary of True North Goods, an outdoor goods and apparel company showing their dedication to protecting the outdoors for future generations to explore by donating a portion of all proceeds to the AFA.  Michael Green Architecture has also supported us greatly as part of its 1% for the Planet contributions.

Eternal Abundance Organic Vegan Grocery & Cafe and Banyen Books & Sound in Vancouver are both generously hosting ongoing sales of AFA items (cards and calendars) in their stores.
Early in 2015, Innerlife Health Services supported the AFA through their Community Clinic offering BodyTalk sessions, and Climbing Arborist and the Mat Fernandez Project along with Roadside Films organized a fundraising film screening.  Hemp & Company, in addition to continued support through the printing of AFA shirts and other clothing items, and through merchandise sales at their store, also awarded the AFA's TJ Watt with an Eco-Hero Award!
Many supporters contributed to the AFA's 5 Year Anniversary Sustainable Dinner & Celebration in April.  Generous contributors included chef Landon Crawford and his team, including front house coordinator Gaby Bolanos, with music by acclaimed Vancouver Island singer-songwriter Shauna Janz, event sponsors Patagonia Victoria, Megson Fitzpatrick Insurance Services, Truffles Catering, Pedersen's Rentals and Hemp & Company, food and drink donations from Hope Hill Farm, Michell's Farm, Sun Trio Farm, Hoyne Brewing, Sea Cider, Tugwell Creek Honey Farm & Meadery, and a wide selection of door prizes from Hemp & Company, Sitka, Sol Integrative Healing, Harmony Belly Dance, Lifestyles Markets, Moksha Yoga Westshore, Patagonia Vancouver, SeaFlora Wild Organic Seaweed Skincare, Harmony Herbal Teas, Cafe 932, Nezza Naturals, Kermode Wildberry Winery, Pathfinders Design & Technology, Quoia, Bahnmann Timber, Evan Patterson Contracting, Platinum Energy Systems, Inspire Hair Design, West Coast Greens, Andy Mackinnon, Robin Esrock/Canadian Bucket List, and Al Carder.
This summer, Tall Tree Music Festival once again came to Brown Mountain near Port Renfrew and lent its support to the AFA’s work to protect old-growth forests near Port Renfrew and beyond.

This holiday season, Heartwood Community Café, Patagonia Vancouver, MEC Victoria and Hudson Public Market generously offered space in their stores for the AFA's Vancouver holiday fundraising booths.  Cordial Wildcrafted Consumables, Bon Macaron Patisserie and Gather Victoria donated food and gift basket items to our year end events, and Patagonia Vancouver hosted a wonderful film screening and presentation fundraiser.
