The CCFS was fortunate to receive a $100,000 grant to support the 2005 acquisition of the 72 hectare parcel immediately south of the Village of Cumberland. This support kickstarted and inspired our ongoing efforts. Then in 2016 they did it again to help close the deal on “Space Nugget” a 40 hr parcel directly adjacent to the existing Cumberland Forest.
The Conradi family were founding supporters of the CCFS, taking a leap of faith and making significant donations toward the 2005 purchase. They continue today as one of our most generous monthly donors to support upcoming acquisitions. They are truly Guardians of our Forest.
The Coast Sustainability Trust provided support back in 2005 to help mitigate the negative effects of BC government land use decisions related to the Land and Resources Management Plan process, and the implementation of Ecosystem Based Management on workers, contractors, First Nations and communities.
For over a decade the Perseverance Trail Run has contributed 100% of proceeds from their trail running event to the CCFS and from 2014 they have been a powerful fundraising partner working with us and our “Forest Fairy” donor to raise over $500,000 from the community through the Run, Private Donations, Raffles, After Parties, Halloween Events, Online Auctions and more!
The Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program is a partnership between BC Hydro, the Province of B.C., Fisheries and Oceans Canada, First Nations and Public Stakeholders to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife impacted by existing BC Hydro dams. They provided a grant of $220,000 for research land acquisition along Perseverance Creek.
Hank and Corrie Snijders were impressed by Canada’s natural beauty when visiting their offspring in Alberta and on Hornby Island. Their daughter, Sonja Sutmoller, directed her children to donate from her estate to an environmental cause in their memory, allowing the CCFS to eliminate the outstanding debt for the first purchase.
Our Legacy Donors contribute $10,000 or more towards the purchase of the Cumberland Forest.
