A new way for American supporters to contribute

Volunteer Denis has joined our US operations team and has set up a new and simple way for Americans to support our work.

Denis Tuzinovic, a Bosnian refugee, grew up in Chicago after immigrating to the US in 1996. He is now based in Seattle, WA and started volunteering for Raincoast in 2018. In his spare time Denis is an avid book reader, marathon runner, and enjoys hiking in the Pacific Northwest.

Denis enjoys the outdoors and is passionate about preserving our environment. Since 2016, he has served as an Environmental Coordinator for Patagonia where he is involved in local initiatives focused on the Southern Resident killer whales, sustainable farming, environmental waste cleanup, and fostering a diverse and inclusive community.

While on furlough from Patagonia, Denis supported nonprofits by organizing donations to a local food bank and going out with a team of marine biologists to help an injured elephant seal. 

Denis is excited to be a part of the Raincoast team and to support our US operations.  Are you a supporter of Raincoast that lives in the US? Now, you can support the Raincoast Conservation Foundation by selecting us as your chosen nonprofit on AmazonSmile.

Anytime you shop on AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the Raincoast Conservation Foundation! Visit AmazonSmile to get started!

Feel free to reach out to Denis at if you have any questions or need help setting up your AmazonSmile account.
