When you donate to South Nation Conservation, you help provide critical financing to projects designed to protect and restore a healthy watershed. Making a financial donation to SNC can be done by mail, phone, in person or online. We issue charitable tax receipts for contributions.
Donations can be made to a particular natural space or conservation program, including SNC's Youth Environmental Edication Programs.
SNC also gratefully accepts donations of ecological land. It’s the gift that keeps on giving beyond the lifetime of the donor, and in many situations, there are attractive environmental and economic benefits for such donations.
SNC uses donated lands to improve forest cover, ensure healthy and safe waterways, and provide public recreational areas.
A member of the Ontario Trust Alliance, SNC is approved to accept donations of land through Canada’s Ecological Gifts Program. In most cases, tax incentives can be provided; in the case of easements, title is maintained by the owners.
SNC manages lands for ecological values. Donated land does not have to be forested—we will consider wetlands and agricultural properties.
