Trout Unlimited Canada
Canada’s future depends on the availability of clean water for drinking, food production, a strong economy and healthy wild spaces. This valuable resource is under threat. Trout Unlimited Canada (TUC) is the only national organization fighting to protect this resource, and working to physically restore Canada’s water for you. Like all Canadians, TUC is facing difficult times and we need your help.
Like most organizations, TUC has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic through loss of funding, cancellation of events and significant reductions in donations. We have reduced our programming, modified operating hours and are in the process of digitizing products for continuing education. These and future efforts will help mitigate the impacts of these difficult times, but we still need your help to ensure that TUC will be able to protect and enhance Canada’s resources and battle the climate crisis well into the future.
TUC is fortunate to have a wide spectrum of amazing talents among its supporters, members, volunteers, and staff across Canada and abroad. The Fin Art campaign is the first of its kind for TUC and aims to raise funds through a peer-to-peer model, supporting our conservation and education programming across Canada while showcasing and celebrating art and creativity. Anyone can join in and contribute to the campaign or simply support the cause through a donation! Some employers match employee contributions to charitable causes and some have increased their match as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. Don’t forget to ask your HR team to increase your impact! As the name implies, the campaign is fish, wildlife and/or water themed and open for artists and creators of all stripes and scales, the wackier and wilder your artistic ideas, the better.
If you are interested in contributing to the campaign, please support the campaign pages of Fin Art contributors, share on social media or by email, or make a donation to the Fin Art campaign using the "Donate Now" button. To create your own page, click the “Create A Fundraiser” button and create a Canada Helps profile and page for your campaign with a title, description and pictures as well as set a fundraising goal. No goal is too small, every contribution matters, and we are so excited to see all your amazing creations. The campaign will end on May 31st, 2020 and our goal is to raise a total of $10,000. Knitters, painters, digital artists, calligraphers, textile artists, and musicians….let your imagination swim free!
Thank you from the whole TUC team!
