    Notification
    When you send a memorial or tribute gift to NLWS, we will notify the family or individual you specify of your thoughtfulness. If you wish, we can include your own special message. You may also choose whether or not you wish NLWS  to mention the amount of your gift. An official receipt for income tax purposes will be issued to you, the donor.



    Our promise to you
    • To be informed how NLWS is using donated resources and of our capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purpose
    • To have access to the organizations most recent financial statements
    • To be assured your gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given
    • To receive appropriate acknowledgment and recognition (publicly only by request)
    • To expect that relationships with individuals representing NLWS will be professional in nature

    • To expect that NLWS is committed to protecting the privacy of our donors

    A general donation supports our programs and will be used wherever the need is greatest. It is not a membership. Becoming a donor of NLWS has many benefits, including:
    • Opportunity to receive 3-4 mailings a year which focus on the lives rescued with your support, informing you about the issue that need to be overcome to implement long-term solutions.
    • Invitations to our online and local events. 
    • Pride in knowing that you are part of a committed and energetic citizen’s movement in Canada, all sharing in the common quest to provide help for wildlife in need. 
    • Access to regular updates on our website, Facebook and other Social media venues



    NLWS is committed to reduce the human footstep on our wildlife.  Making or revising your will or other estate plans to include NLWS can have a tremendous and wonderful impact on our future, and will help us preserve our precious wildlife  for future generations. Planned giving provides you with the opportunity to decide where your hard-earned assets go. Here are examples of how you can make planned provisions for NLWS.

    Bequests in your Will

    By remembering NLWS in your will, you can leave a legacy supporting your commitment to our wildlife. Your estate will receive a charitable receipt for the full amount of the bequest which can assist in reducing the tax payable on your final income tax return.
