We’re thrilled to announce that the Squamish Environment Society is now a registered charity. This will allow us to tap into more funding sources, issue tax receipts for donations, and gain access to software and services which are available free to charitable organizations. It will also cut in half the amount of GST we pay.
Our How to Donate page has been updated with details on our new options for donors. We are working on making other options available as soon as we can.
SES relies on donations in order to operate and we’re incredibly grateful to the individuals, businesses and government agencies who have chosen to support us. Donors contributing cash ($20 or more) or goods and services in kind, have the option to be included on our annual donor pages. If you haven’t seen the pages, take a look.
