The lands and waters of the Dawson Region sustain wildlife and people alike. This region is home to the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in, who have cared for this land since time immemorial. The Fortymile caribou herd relies on alpine ridges in the west, and Dall sheep, wolverines and grizzly bears live among the rugged mountains in the north. Salmon swim upstream for thousands of kilometers to spawn along the tributaries of the Yukon River, at one time providing sustenance and cultural connection to those that call this place home.
The future of the Dawson Region hinges on this land use plan. If you want to see nature and wildlife conserved for future generations, decision makers need to hear from you.
Volunteering with CPAWS is a great way to make friends, learn about conservation first-hand and be part of our mission to protect Canada’s wilderness.
We couldn’t do what we do without your support.
Legacy giving is a way of contributing to wilderness protection by making a planned gift to protect Yukon’s wild spaces and the species that rely on them.
A planned gift is one that you make for the future. IT can include options such as adding a beneficiary to a new or existing will, life insurance policy, retirement savings plan or investment package. It’s a form of planning that allows you to structure your gift in a way that allows you to keep your money now and maximizes tax benefits; helping you to achieve your personal financial goals while giving vital support to a cause you believe in.
“I’m a big fan of planned giving. It’s a great way for my family to support the charities we love without affecting our cash flow right now. With a set percentage planned gift through my will and life insurance, I can contribute to the organization’s future as well as my family’s. It’s one of the ways I contribute to the world I want to see.”
