Donations by Businesses, Artists & Organizations

Thanks to the generous support of donors, the Ancient Forest Alliance has quickly grown to become BC’s leading grassroots organization working for the protection of endangered old-growth forests and forestry jobs across the province.  

In the past several years since the AFA was founded, the local small business community along with artists and other organizations has bolstered the AFA’s important work through many fundraising initiatives ranging from yoga studio Karma Classes, gift raffles, ‘Haircut not Clearcut’ salon fundraisers, in kind donations, proceeds from products or services to music festivals, concerts and special event benefits.  See below for a full list of businesses, artists and other groups who have supported the AFA so far.

We look forward to working with many more such supporters in 2017 and beyond as we pursue our ambitious goal of ensuring legislated protection for endangered old-growth forests across the province!

For more information on supporting the AFA as a business or organization, visit our Business and Organization Support page.

Thanks to our 2016 Donors!

In 2016, the AFA received significant support from a variety of granting programs and creative fundraisers.  We are very grateful for the major support provided by Mountain Equipment Co-op’s Community Contributions Grants and their vote for their year-end staff donation, by Sitka for the construction of the Avatar Grove Boardwalk, and by Patagonia through their 1% for the Planet program.

Patagonia Vancouver and MEC have also both generously offered space for tabling at their stores throughout the year, and MEC has offered AFA calendars for sale at their stores in both Vancouver and Victoria.

A huge thanks to Elizabeth Yake and the rest of the creators of ‘Hadwin’s Judgement for offering the screening of the film as a fundraiser for the AFA several times throughout the year, and to the Rio Theatre, UVic Cinecenta Theatre, and Metchosin Community House for hosting these events and offering space for tabling and merchandise sales.  Huge thanks also to John Vaillant for supporting through his attendance for the Q&A and offering funds raised through the sale of his book The Golden Spruce, and to the individual supporters who organized the Vancouver and Metchosin film screening events! Thanks as well to the Rio Theatre and Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival for the opportunity to present the AFA documentary and host an outreach table at the ‘Back to the Roots’ film screening event in November, and to Roadside Films again for the incredible documentary film about the AFA that has helped to raise awareness and funds.

Thank you again to the Arboreal Collective for their integral support in the second Climbing Big Lonely Doug expedition and to DJI for the opportunity to capture drone footage for the new video of the climb!

Many events helped to raise proceeds and awareness for the AFA in April and for Earth Day, including ROOT Victoria, Creatively United for the Planet, Sitka Victoria with their ‘Love the Earth with Sitka’ event, and All Beings Confluence.

This summer, Tall Tree Music Festival once again came to Brown Mountain near Port Renfrew and lent its support to the AFA’s work to protect old-growth forests near Port Renfrew and beyond.

We are very excited to be the beneficiary of Staekka Brand, a new goods and apparel company, through a portion of proceeds from the purchase of their products, and Awaken Apparel, through a percentage of proceeds from market and online sales.  Thanks as well to Pacific Coffee Roasters for their support through a portion of proceeds from a special product and to the Royal Roads University Social Enterprise program for supporting the AFA through the sale of scarves as part of their ‘Scarves for Sustainability’ project.

Thank you once again to Eternal Abundance Organic Vegan Grocery & Cafe and Banyen Books & Sound in Vancouver, both longtime supporters that are generously hosting ongoing sales of various AFA merchandise in their stores.
