Funds and projects that accept donations
Many of our donors engage with us on specific programs and projects and would like to make donations to their specific area of interest.
Esson Bursary Fund
The Muskoka Conservancy encourages young people to successfully complete a post-secondary school education related to the Natural Sciences (Biology, Forestry, Environmental Studies) or related Technologies (Wildlife, Forestry, Environmental Engineering). In support of this, we are offering a $1,000.00 Bursary, known as The Charlie Esson Stewardship Bursary, to assist a student in achieving academic qualifications in these disciplines.
Our Shoreline Stewardship Program provides advice and referrals to shoreline property owners about how they can make their shoreline as healthy and resilient as it can be.
Private Landowner Stewardship Fund
This fund supports our ongoing work to support landowners as they work to become stewards of their properties, ensuring their health and resilience for many years into the future.
Property Acquisition Fund
While we are grateful to the generous donors who donate their property to Muskoka Conservancy, there are costs for the organization associated with accepting the properties. These costs can include legal fees and appraisals. Donations to this fund allow us to accept donated properties as they become available.
Maintenance and Defence Fund
When Muskoka Conservancy accepts a property, we take on responsibility for that property, FOREVER. For that reason, we are very diligent in proactive in ensuring our properties are kept in appropriate environmental conditions. Donations to this fund allow us to protect our properties against whatever may happen in the future because FOREVER is a very long time.
