“I have supported Stand for almost ten years because it has always done something that a number of other environmental groups don’t. They look at the supply chain behind a harmful practice, such as the logging of old growth forests, and influence the companies that buy the products to use their power to influence change.”
Leonard Schein, Founder, Vancouver International Film Festival
Vancouver, British Columbia
“Stand is the organization I’ve found the most meaning in being involved with. Its many concrete achievements are awe-inspiring – the nimbleness, the continuity, the organizational strength, the tremendous effectiveness. It's that rare organization that I trust so deeply that it has earned my blanket support. It’s my deep wish that you will all engage with Stand, too.”
Jennifer Egan, Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author
“Stand.earth was born from a campaign that successfully wielded corporate procurement to protect one of the last temperate rainforests in the world. Since then, it has continued to innovate and press for systemic change in impressive cutting-edge ways to protect people and our planet. It’s why I still support Stand.earth.”
Liz Barratt-Brown, Co-Founder and Past Board Member
“I think the whole ethos that Stand is grounded in is really unique, because of the breadth of its campaigns and the way the team coordinates with partners so well. It’s compelling and motivating to see how impactful the campaigns are and I continue to be more impressed every day.”
Nadine Warkentin-Brain, Retired Public Servant and Freelance Facilitator

Your gift is particularly important to Stand.earth’s bold, visible, and effective campaigns given the challenges of fundraising in Canada without charitable status.

Stand.earth is an international organization with offices in both Canada and the United States. Our history, however, began over 20 years ago in British Columbia, Canada. Our founders created Stand to lead a global effort to stop the logging of rare thousand-year-old forests on the coast of British Columbia. Our roots continue to be deeply linked to the protection of forests in British Columbia, and we’ve also grown over the years to meet the scale of the environmental problems we face globally.
