Giving Tuesday – Kicking Off The Festive Giving Season

Giving Tuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

The “Opening day of the giving season,” is a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for Giving Tuesday.

By donating to groups like AWARE you become a part of our story.

For Giving Tuesday and throughout the holiday season AWARE hopes to raise $3,000 to go towards increasing the charity’s ability to advocate for our local environment, and we need your help!

The advocacy fund helps us make sure nature has a voice – the fund allows us to engage in local issues relating to resource use (energy, waste, water use), species, specific habitats (from old forests to alpine ecosystems) and land use strategy (e.g. inputting into development proposals or policy). In 2018, a significant portion of our advocacy efforts was spent ensuring nature was well represented in Whistler’s Official Community Plan and updated Vision – which will guide community decision making for years to come.


Help us continue to give nature a voice by committing to donate this festive season!

There are a number of ways to give:

  • Make a one-time donation
  • Support our work year-round by setting up a monthly donation
  • Commit your business to support our work through a corporate donation

At the end of each year, we issue tax receipts for donations over $25.

Please consider donating to AWARE (or another group in the Sea-to-Sky) as charities and non-profits in the corridor encourage local philanthropy through #SeatoSkyGives. Sharing talent, treasure or time for a cause close to your heart is a great way to get into the festive spirit and enjoy an alternative way of giving.
