The Foundation and its Mission

Sierra Club Canada Foundation (SCCF) is a registered charity whose mission is to be a voice for the earth. We work to protect and preserve the natural environment and to empower people to be stewards of the earth in their communities. Since 1971, SCCF has funded tens of millions of dollars’ worth of important work, from small local projects to large, multi-year campaigns with many volunteers, organizers, and scientists.

We are funded by individual donors, grassroots memberships, foundations and others who recognize that we all have a right to a safe and healthy environment: clean air, clean water, open spaces, wilderness, and healthy and diverse ecosystems. We are unique in the environmental movement because we enable average citizens to organize activities that improve our local, national and global environments.
