TD Friends of the Environment Foundation
TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (TD FEF) has been a long-time supporter of the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC). Since 1984, TD FEF has granted over $1.4 million to conservation projects across Canada, including Chase Woods in British Columbia and Yellow Quill Prairie in Manitoba.
Most recently, NCC was selected to compete as one of five national charities in TD FEF’s Facebook Charity Vote in celebration of National Forest Week. NCC was honoured to be awarded the $20,000 winning donation thanks to our supporters and online voters.
Thank you to those who participated in the contest and in particular to TD Friends of the Environment Foundation for their ongoing support of our efforts in the conservation of Canada's natural heritage.
G. Murray and Edna Forbes Foundation Fund
The G. Murray and Edna Forbes Foundation Fund is a donor-advised fund held at the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation (SSCF). SSCF builds permanently endowed charitable funds for the changing needs and opportunities of south Saskatchewan communities, and provides grants in a variety of focus areas, including animal welfare, arts and culture, community development, education and scholarships, environment, health, social services, spiritual, and sports and recreation.
The G. Murray and Edna Forbes Foundation Fund is providing the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) a total of $155,000 over three years to fund restoration work on approximately 300 hectares in southern Saskatchewan in corridors that will reconnect intact grassland landscapes and/or restore habitat for species at risk.
Supporting NCC on our journey to lessening the negative impacts of climate change aligns with the priorities of the late Murray and Edna Forbes of Regina. These priorities include minimizing carbon footprint, habitat preservation and restoration, and related education activities.
