YES! I’MBECOMING A MEMBER

1. Support Équiterre on a regular basis with a monthly donation, in order to:

  • give a strong voice to your environmental values;
  • reduce the administrative costs linked to your membership;
  • contribute to Équiterre’s projects month after month (because there are environmental issues to address all the year long!);
  • increase the political clout of the environmental movement;
  • receive an invitation to the Équiterre members’ annual general meetings in Quebec City or Montreal in the spring;
  • help elect our board of directors;
  • receive (if you wish) our electronic newsletters on environmental issues;
  • be able to donate smaller amounts over time that will accumulate for your tax receipt at the end of the year;
  • receive a receipt for tax purposes at the end of the year.

Effective: smaller amounts for a greater impact.

Simple: Choose the amount that best suits you. Some of our members give the equivalent of one or two hours of their salary per month - it’s like dedicating a couple of hours of volunteering per month to protect the environment. Some members give the equivalent of a cup of coffee per week. Regardless of the amount, what’s important to us is your regular support.

Convenient: You can modify the amount of your contribution and suspend your payment by communicating with us two weeks prior. You remain a member for one year following the date of your last donation.

YES! I’MBECOMING A CORPORATE MEMBER

For your organization/business to become a corporate member it will have to:

A- Make of donation to Équiterre of at least $2,000. This contribution will give to your organisation corporate member status for one year. Your organization/business can also become a monthly donor to sustainably support quiterre’s projects.

B- Write a letter to explain why your organization is motivated to become a member of Équiterre.

If your organization would like to make a donation that is less than $2,000, it will become an Équiterre supporter rather than a corporate member (so it will not have the right to vote at the annual general meetings). You can also contribute as an individual to become an individual member.

Thank you for your valuable support!
