AN URGENT NEED FOR NEW OFFICES

NEARLY 20 YEARS AND 14,400 HECTARES (35 583 ACRES) OF PROTECTED AREAS LATER…

The need for new offices is now critical for the team. Our current offices lack both space and an adequate Internet service, impeding the development of the organization and preventing us from expanding our service and sharing our expertise in the region.
After five years of active research, a project to acquire a building in Eastman is on its way! We are appealing for donations so that we can continue to adequately serve the entire community and work together to conserve natural habitats in our region.

Thank you for your help and generosity!

 

In addition to having a direct impact on the immediate team, this new space will allow the organization to expand its service offer and share its expertise with a multitude of stakeholders: landowners who wish to get involved in conservation, our 17 affiliated members, the 43 municipalities and 6 MRCs in our territory, schools and day camps, etc. The entire community benefits from our expertise! ” – Mélanie Lelièvre, Executive Director of Appalachian Corridor.

 

 

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

What is Appalachian Corridor?

Appalachian Corridor is a non-profit conservation organization created in 2002, with a mission to protect natural areas in the Appalachians of Southern Quebec. It is lead by a seven member Board of Directors headed by President Marie-José Auclair. The Executive Director, Mélanie Lelièvre is supported by a multidisciplinary team comprised of two biologists, a GIS specialist, a communications and philanthropy coordinator, an Affiliate Members liaison agent, three conservation consultants, a coordinator dedicated to the Green Mountains Nature Reserve, an administrative assistant and a few dedicated collaborators.

Who are the Affiliated Members of Appalachian Corridor?

Appalachian Corridor developed a network that that brings together 17 local groups and Nature Conservancy Canada, a national organisation, all committed to the protection and stewardship of protected areas on private land. In addition to playing a leading role within the network, Appalachian Corridor provides technical, scientific, administrative and financial support. This partnership enables the implementation of Appalachian Corridor’s trans-border conservation strategy, as the organizations work collectively to maintain and restore a way of life that respects the ecology of the region from a perspective of sustainable development.

Who is targeted by the campaign?

The campaign will approach everyone: individuals, businesses and interest groups.

Will donations be tax deductible?

Yes. Appalachian is a registered non-profit organisation (#85411 7488 RR001) and can issue official receipts.

What is the fiscal impact of an annual donation?

Governments offer a tax credit programme to encourage donations to registered charitable organizations. The tax treatment differs whether it is for an individual or a business.

Can donors spread their donation over several years?

Yes. A donor can, if desired, spread their donations over a period of five years. The installments can be made by cheque or by credit card.

Can we donate land?

Yes. It is possible to donate ecologically sensitive land in exchange for certain fiscal advantages. Appalachian Corridor offers an ecological donation programme. Ask for our documentation on the subject or contact us for an appointment.

Can we donate shares listed on the stock exchange?

Yes. In fact this is an excellent way to optimize your donation; it would give Appalachian Corridor a larger amount and would give a bigger deduction to the donor. Since 2006 the federal and provincial governments give an important fiscal advantage to those who donate shares to a charitable organization: the capital gains on shares are completely exempt from taxation! The donor receives a receipt equivalent to the real market value of the shares at the time of the donations in addition to impressively increasing the final contribution to Appalachian Corridor’s cause. Shares listed on the stock exchange include stocks, bonds and mutual funds. We can provide you with an information leaflet or you can consult an accountant or a tax advisor.

How will donors be recognized?

Appalachian Corridor has a Recognition Programme for different types of donors: individuals, corporative, institutions, organizations and foundations. We also respect donors who opt to remain anonymous. Ask for our Donor Recognition Program.
