Join our force for nature!
The Force for Nature campaign will raise $500 million over five years.
This will allow us to protect 500,000 acres (200,000 hectares) across the country.
A history of success
NCC's previous fundraising campaign, Saving Canada’s Natural Masterpieces, was at the time the largest fundraising campaign for conservation in Canadian history.

What is the Force for Nature campaign?
The Nature Conservancy of Canada's (NCC's) Force for Nature campaign is our most ambitious endeavour to date, which aims to raise funds for the securement of approximately 90 Natural Areas across the country.
We will also raise funds for their long-term management through the Stewardship Endowment Fund.
What are Natural Areas?
Natural Areas are geographical areas that our conservation science team has defined. They are areas of high ecological value with strong opportunities for conservation, and form the core of our Force for Nature campaign.
What is the Stewardship Endowment Fund?
The Stewardship Endowment Fund ensures that we have the long-term resources to manage and maintain the properties in our care. It will fund activities such as restoration, monitoring and inventories. The fund also helps us pay property taxes or hire interns or consultants to help with ongoing conservation work on our properties.
Where do you focus your work?
We focus our work in southern Canada, where most of our population lives, sharing habitat with more than 85 percent of our country's terrestrial species at risk. This is where we can achieve real, tangible and enduring results.
