What is the Cataraqui Conservation Foundation?
The Cataraqui Conservation Foundation raises funds to assist with the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority's conservation education and land acquisition programs.
The Foundation has been the CRCA's fundraising arm for more than 40 years. The Foundation is a registered charitable organization with a formally-constituted board of directors and organization by-laws. The board elects its officers and maintains its records at the CRCA Administration Office.
People interested in the aims of the Foundation can make an annual donation, participate in a fundraising event or give to one of the Foundation's fundraising campaigns.
The Foundation raises funds for the CRCA's conservation education programs through its annual Partners in Outdoor Education fundraising campaign. The Foundation also holds a gala fundraising dinner each year to raise funds for conservation education and conservation land acquisition.
The largest Foundation project to date was fundraising for the CRCA's Outdoor Centre at Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area in the early 1990s. By raising several hundred thousand dollars, the Foundation helped the CRCA build a facility for community use as well as for its conservation education and recreation programs.
In 2007, the Foundation raised over $200,000 to assist the CRCA with the purchase of a significant portion of the Bayview Wetland, an environmentally significant area in Loyalist Township.
