What does it mean to help Équiterre?

Published on 

Faced with the environmental crisis, climate disruption and declining biodiversity, it’s normal to feel powerless at times. But to show that effective action is more accessible than we might think, let’s ask ourselves a simple question: what does it mean to be a member of Équiterre?

Much more than money

You may be surprised that 50% of Équiterre’s funding comes from individual donations, which help us to accomplish some amazing things!

A donation means a lot more than the amount itself. It means we can count on sustainable funding for our projects and activities. It allows us flexibility, makes us independent and enables us to react quickly to issues that concern us. A donation also adds political weight to our activism. In other words, your donation makes change possible!

So many ways to give

A one-time donation is great, but there are many other ways to make a difference. Recurring donations, regardless of their amount, provide an added value. They deliver more because they also provide security over a longer period of time.

Monthly donations allow us to execute our campaigns over the long term. They allow us to respond effectively to new developments, they increase our freedom to act. In short, they provide much more than a dollar value.

So that every dollar goes further

A little bonus

You can give without even thinking about it. How? By using the Bonusdollars Rewards Program offered by participating Desjardins credit cards. By doing so, you are able to help us without spending a dollar. The type of giving that can save you money! 😉

Eligible Visa Desjardins cardholders can make a donation to Équiterre by redeeming their Bonusdollars
