2020 Supporters

Thank You to our 2020 Donors & Supporters

Our donors have helped some great work get done this year, 2020 concludes our final year of the five-year, $5 million Protect, Connect, Sustain Campaign. We’re thrilled to report that as of December 31, 2020, your generosity raised $6.3 million, exceeding our campaign goal.

Thanks to our incredible donors, funders and sponsors, we raised $926,236 and made a $642,380 contribution to CVC programs and projects in 2020.

Our donors have helped some great work get done this year, including:

  • Parks and conservation area $71,292
    • Completion of the Island Lake Natural playground. The 1.17 acre nature-inspired playground incorporates natural elements like plants, water, logs, boulders and terrain, with built-in play structures to provide different sensory experiences and diverse play opportunities.
  • Credit Valley Trail $25,000
    • Acquisition of the Flaherty Property and implementing CVT way-finding signage at Upper Credit Conservation Area
  • Environmental Education $40,345
    • In 2020, through our Conservation Youth Corps, Frontline and Branch Out youth programs, we were able to run 31 events engaging with and providing environmental education to 305 youth who helped plant 97 native trees and shrubs within the Credit River Watershed which resulted in the restoration of 13 m2 and the removal of 100lbs of litter
  • Community Engagement $125,000
  • CVCA Special Projects $380,742
  • Including $280,000 towards the pilot of a Smart Blue Roof system at the CVC Administrative office. Smart blue roofs are a new way for flat-roofed buildings to manage rainwater. They use real-time weather data to decide whether to let the water evaporate on the roof, store it, or release it into the stormwater system. This generous grant will help CVC assess real-world system performance.
