Artist to donate thousands via Jimmy Wright original painting

Give Raincoast a $25,000 donation to help stop the trophy hunt, and Kristine Paton will give you her Jimmy Wright painting

Interested in helping Raincoast purchase another Commercial Hunting Territory and put an end to trophy hunting?

Giving a donation of $20,000 or more to Raincoast’s campaign to end the grizzly bear trophy hunt in British Columbia will not only get you a tax donation and our gratitude, but your donation could get you a one of kind painting.  Kristine Paton, a Raincoast supporter and bear lover, will gift to you this quintessential original Jimmy Wright painting Ursa Major from her private collection (appraised at a value of between $25,000 and $30,000).

For more information on Kristine Paton’s initiative, please visit her website and blog.

To celebrate the end of the year, we are so happy to be able to offer matching campaigns on two of our most pressing fundraising initiatives.

All donations to both the Southern Great Bear Rainforest tenure acquisition and our KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest initiative, will be matched until the end of the year. This is a great opportunity for our supporters, like you, to make your impact go twice as far, while benefiting from tax deductions.

Help us secure KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest on S,DÁYES (Pender Island). Together with Pender Islands Conservancy, Raincoast is raising $2.18 million to purchase a 45 acre coastal property on the edge of the Salish Sea.

Safeguarding Coastal Carnivores in the Southern Great Bear Rainforest tenure. We are currently raising funds to stop commercial trophy hunting in more than a quarter of the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia.
