Our Donors


Every dollar donated has truly made a difference. Without the support of our donors we would not be able to take the massive strides we do towards wildlife preservation in BC. Thanks to our donors, we are able to provide hundreds of wildlife education programs every year to over 10,000 people, and protect thousands of animals every day with our Bird & Wildlife Sanctuary on Vancouver Island. Thanks to this tremendous support, wildlife in the Pacific northwest is being preserved for its own intrinsic value and for the benefit of all. THANK YOU!

Legacy Gifts

Cynthia Granfield

Land Bequest

Thanks to the generous legacy gift from Mrs. Cynthia Granfield, thousands of animals including threatened and endangered species like the red-legged frog, barn owl and orca now have a place of sanctuary in perpetuity. In 2010 Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society became stewards of her land, now named Manley Farm Bird & Wildlife Sanctuary, which is a mixed-use 240 acre property of forest, wetland and marine habitat as well as farmland. Per the terms of her bequest, to the greatest extent possible we continue to support the sustainable farming on the land so that it may work in harmony with providing safe haven to the myriad of species in the region.

V. Sproule

Estate Beneficiary

In 2007 NWPS was notified of Ms. Sproule’s generous gift to the society. In her estate, NWPS was named a residual beneficiary. Ms. Sproule’s legacy lives on in the thousands of disadvantaged children and youth throughout BC that we were able to provide free wildlife education programs to thanks to her kindness and generosity.

M. Pigott

Insurance Beneficiary 

In 2013 NWPS was given a generous gift from Mrs. Pigott via an insurance policy naming the society as beneficiary. The society is so honoured to help carry out her legacy by preserving wildlife in the pacific northwest.
