BC Parks Foundation

Registered Name: BC Parks Foundation

Business Number: 731307492RR0001

Beautiful, Supernatural BC is one of the most amazing places on the planet. While most of the planet has lost and is losing nature and wildlife at alarming rates, BC still has vast tracts of the original earth. Here you can still experience the source of genuine well-being — the untamed magic of life.

We started as a group of prominent British Columbians with a mission to protect, enhance, celebrate and pass on this magic. We believe our world-class park system is at the core of who we are, our wealth, and our future. Our most treasured places need our support or we risk losing the incredible natural legacy we are lucky enough to call home.

Our mission is to protect, enhance, celebrate and pass along on the magic of park life. Our primary role is to promote and support public interest, engagement and involvement in parks and encourage people to contribute.

We’re an independent and private Foundation. We are much like a hospital or university foundation; we make it possible for people to enhance parks above and beyond what government is able to do. We do not take direction from, report to, or raise money for government, but we do work cooperatively with them and proudly act as the official charitable partner of BC Parks.

We come to you respectfully and enthusiastically, to ask you to consider joining us in our magic canoe of park supporters. We call it magic because the canoe always expands to welcome new paddles, and every paddle makes a difference, no matter the size, shape, or colour.

The parks need you, and now more than ever, the world needs more Beautiful, Supernatural BC. While there are many worthy causes, when you support parks, you are passing along the magic of life. Forever.
