EALT accepts gifts of ecologically significant lands, which we will protect in perpetuity. Environment Canada's Ecological Gifts Program enables landowners to donate land and receive significant tax benefits.
You may also donate a Conservation Easement on all or parts of your property. Conservation easements are a tool to allow you to permanently protect natural and cultural features of your land, without giving up ownership or use, while EALT continues conservation of these lands in perpetuity.
Learn more about donating land, conservation easements, and about how conservation works, or contact Pam Wight, Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org to talk about your options for conserving your land.
EALT has several endowment funds held by the Edmonton Community Foundation. Endowment funds are not spent, but are permanently invested and their income provides important ongoing support.
You can also create a named endowment fund to give in the name of yourself or others. You might wish to place your own name on the fund, or to honour a loved one. Contact the Edmonton Community Foundation for more information.
Remember a loved one or honour a birthday, anniversary, wedding graduation or other special occasion. Learn more about Tribute Giving, or make a donation online.
Your legacy is the footprint you leave on the earth and the memories that others have of you. Gifts in Wills help leave a conservation legacy for future generations. Learn more about leaving your conservation legacy.
Some employers match charitable contributions made by their employees. To maximize the benefit of your donation to EALT, contact your Human Resources department to find out if this is a possibility for you, and contact us to let us know about your employer's matched donation.
