Financial Gifts

Thanks to a partnership with American Friends of Canadian Conservation (American Friends) you can help us protect this special part of Canada with a contribution of cash or securities, and receive a tax benefit in the US.

Donate via our partnership with American Friends in one of the following ways:

  • Donate online at American Friends’ secure site using your credit card if you want to make a one-time contribution, or you can set up a recurring gift
  • Donate stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares to American Friends to avoid US capital gains taxes while receiving a tax deduction for the current value of your securities. Contact Sandra Tassel at 360-515-7171 or sandratassel@conservecanada.org for instructions
  • Mail a check (in US funds) to:

American Friends of Canadian Conservation
336 36th Street #717
Bellingham, WA 98225

Print, fill out, sign and send a Grant Recommendation with your check to request that American Friends use your donation to make a grant to The Nature Trust of BC.  The language in the recommendation is necessary for your gift to be tax deductible in the US.

Thank you for your support of The Nature Trust of BC through the partnership with American Friends!

Gifts of Land

You can conserve your Canadian property through a gift that is tax deductible in the US.

But be sure you know the effects of Canadian taxes even if you are a US taxpayer. Learn about the bi-national tax incentives by downloading Save Some Green: A Handbook for US Taxpayers from the Resources section of American Friends’ website.
