Dedicate Your Time, Treasure or Talent

AWARE works towards a vision of a knowledgeable community that is engaged and empowered to preserve and enhance the environment on which it depends. Join in helping us create this vision. Here are some ways you can contribute:


Upcoming events offer opportunities to learn more about the organization, connect with members, board members and staff, and learn about ways to get involved with AWARE’s work in the community.

AWARE has been volunteer run for the majority of the time the organization formed in 1989. Sign up to volunteer and play a role in this story.

The AWARE Membership further supports AWARE’s projects, programs and events in the community, while offering countless benefits to those who join.

Help AWARE continue and expand our work safeguarding habitat, biodiversity and wilderness, connecting people with nature and building sustainable community.

Are you looking to increase the impact of your donation? We can accept cash donations or publicly listed securities in our endowment fund. These create a lasting legacy and have the added benefit of eliminating capital tax gains. AWARE’s endowment funds are ethically invested and managed by the Community Foundation of Whistler. Learn more about endowment funds here.

Donations in kind are non-monetary and often come in the form of prizing, photography, space donations, art, staff time or equipment. Let us know if this type of giving is a fit for you. 

Join our Fundraising and Events Committee to play a role in deciding upcoming events and to help execute them from the ground up.

The board of Directors is responsible for setting AWARE’s priorities and direction in the community. Learn more about this integral role and how you can play a part in the governance of our growing organization.
