Donate to AWARE

Our members take a stand for our environment. 

Since 1989, AWARE has been the voice on the ground in Whistler. Today, we urgently need to protect Whistler from the harsh realities of climate change. Nature, the very foundation of the Whistler experience, is under threat, but AWARE is here to help safeguard its natural systems and complex ecosystems.

We rely on donations from people like you. Here’s how AWARE uses donated funds:

  • We develop and train our team and network of volunteers.
  • We participate in municipal committees of council.
  • We keep community members informed about local environmental issues.
  • We design new programs and projects to fill gaps in our community.
  • We write letters to bring attention to conservation issues in Whistler.
  • We provide input into decisions that impact the natural environment.

To support the community’s climate action goals, we rely on grants and partner with organizations to deliver programs on the ground. Educational workshops, waste management at events and the community garden and greenhouse program are all funded by our partners, managed by staff, and supported by volunteers.

Make a donation today. Support AWARE’s work and voice for Whistler.
