The Credit Valley Conservation Foundation (CVC Foundation) is the charitable arm of Credit Valley Conservation (CVC). Established in 1964, the CVC Foundation exists to inspire people and organizations to donate to support CVC’s vision of a thriving environment that protects, connects and sustains us.
To raise funds and awareness in support of the conservation projects carried out by Credit Valley Conservation that protect, connect and sustain the health and well-being of the watershed and its communities.
As emerging leaders in local environmental fundraising, the CVC Foundation aspires to raise $5 Million dollars in 5 years (2016-2020) through our Protect, Connect, Sustain Campaign in support of CVC’s vision of a thriving environment that protects, connects and sustains us. 2019 concludes the fourth year of our five-year, $5 million Protect, Connect, Sustain Campaign. We are thrilled to report that as of December 31, 2019, your generosity raised $5.43 million, exceeding our campaign goal. With one year remaining, we’re inspired by the continual need to do more for our environment and the communities we serve.
Our previous campaign, Landscapes for Life, was launched in 2012 with the goal of raising $2.5 Million in 5 years (2012-2016). Thanks to the tremendous generousity of our our donors, we exceeded the campaign goal by $1 million dollars in just four years! The Landscapes for Life Campaign was then retired one year earlier than anticipated in 2015 with an achievement of $3,511,057 dollars raised. 95% of the funds raised ($3,342,781 dollars) were invested in CVC programs and projects.
Key CVC programs funded by our donors through the CVC Foundation include: Conservation Youth Corps, Land Acquisition, Credit Valley Trail and the Vicki Barron Lakeside Trail.
Our goal is to improve the local environment for the well-being of our communities by supporting and enabling CVC to achieve the following strategic directions:
The CVC Foundation board is a group of environmentally-committed individuals dedicated to raising funds and awareness to support an environmentally healthy watershed for economically and socially sustainable communities.
Our work is supported and greatly accomplished through our local fundraising groups and committees.
Our local fundraising groups are sub-committees of the Foundation Board. They identify opportunities and/or methods to raise funds in support of specific, board approved projects and take the lead in championing and implementing those fundraising efforts.
