Ways to donate
By donating to Équiterre you are contributing to the transition towards a more equitable and environmentally responsible world.
When you give to Équiterre, you also enjoy the benefits of a one-year membership and ensure that your voice is heard loud and clear in decisions and policies that affect the environment in Quebec and in Canada.
With the help of your support, we are able to bring to the forefront of the debate:
- The climate emergency: Disasters are happening more and more frequently and the window for action is getting shorter!
- Government inaction: Governments need to do more!
- Your rights to a healthy planet: They are legitimate and there is still time to act.
Gifts of any amount help us ensure our independence and increase our freedom to act.
