Haida Gwaii Community Foundation
Gwai Animal Helpline Fund

We were recently able to establish a fund under the Haida Gwaii Community Foundation. The objective of this fund is to support the long-term improvement of companion animal wellbeing in Haida Gwaii. Thanks to the incredible support of donors and the Gwaii Trust Society, which is matching donations dollar-for-dollar up to a whopping $50,000 in the first year, the fund’s value already exceeds $25,000! This fund was established as a legacy project, where we can direct the income generated from the fund to support improved animal wellbeing in Haida Gwaii. It will take time to generate sufficient income to support initiatives such as the low-income support programs, but with continued donations, over time, the fund will grow, generating revenue needed to help support the organization and special programs. Donations to the Haida Gwaii Community Foundation Gwaii Animal Helpline fund can be made at You will receive a tax receipt from Gwaii Trust.
