MAKE A BEQUEST
Legacy giving is the ultimate gift from those who support RAVEN’s commitment to respect the rights of First Nations and the environment. Please contact us if your lawyer needs further information.
We honour and respect people who remember us in their will. RAVEN has been successful in preventing the loss of a sacred lake and in helping to restore the habitat for endangered woodland caribou. We intend to keep up our support of First Nations in hopes of levelling the playing field with industry and government, and with your help the future of RAVEN’s work will be a legacy worth passing on to the generations that follow.

DONATE TRAVEL POINTS/AIR MILES
RAVEN is looking to raise 300,000 miles to cover travel for First Nations Chiefs, elders, and community members to attend court challenges, meet with political leaders, and attend solidarity events around the country. Can you help?
RAVEN donors have given more than a million miles to help members of different Nations and their legal teams get to court to stand in defence of their land, water and traditional way of life. And here’s a big bonus! Every donation of miles is topped up 10% by the Beyond Miles team.
ONE PERCENT FOR THE PLANET
One of the most effective things we’ve ever done was partner with 1% for the Planet. Not only have we made some great friends, we get to see our commitment to social justice carried forward by some wonderfully progressive social enterprises. Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder and owner of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, owner of Blue Ribbon Flies, 1% FTP is a growing global movement of over 1,350 member companies in 43 countries that donate one per cent of their sales to environmental organizations worldwide. As a network, the 1% community has become a frontrunner in funding the work of environmental groups around the world. Run a business or social enterprise?

DONOR ADVISED FUNDS
RAVEN is qualified to accept donor advised funds (DAF). DAFs are convenient and easy for you, the donor, impactful for RAVEN and gaining popularity. A quick call to your fund advisor means funds can be put to use immediately. As we have seen with the Beaver Lake Cree Nation, legal teams are actively working on cases and courts are moving forward; being able to access DAF is critical to the success of short term funding needs.
