How We Fund

We make donations to organizations that have a Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) registered charitable number. Our funds are primarily for land securement with the objective of land conservancy and the preservation of Canada’s nature. MapleCross does not accept donations from individuals or corporations.

Our pre-requisites for partnering with a land trust/conservancy:

  • Board of governors (and advisory boards)
  • Organizational structure (leadership, management, volunteers)
  • Financial reports
  • Proven ability to raise funds from private and public sectors
  • Community support

Our pre-requisites for funding a project:

  • Quality of the property: ecological importance, biodiversity, contiguity
  • Timing of acquisition
  • Breakdown of total project costs: property purchase price, affiliated costs (appraisal, legal, HST, etc.), stewardship costs
  • Leverage potential: private donors, government grants, community involvement, matching fund campaigns
