We Need Your Support

We depend on our membership base for much of our operating budget, but as a grassroots organization, we need additional help for special projects and outreach.

The primary mission of the Whitebark Pine Ecosystem Foundation is to promote and support the restoration of declining whitebark pine communities (Threats).  We effect change through projects both of our own initiative and in cooperation with other organizations, institutions, and governmental bodies. By donating to the WPEF, you are supporting educational campaigns, funding restoration projects, implementing partnerships, and advocating for whitebark pine at local, regional, and national scales. View Partners & Projects for more information.

If you wish to donate to a specific project (for example, Five Needle Friendly Ski Area Certification, Nutcracker Notes, whitebark pine restoration projects, etc.), we can direct your funds following your interests. We very much appreciate non-directed donations, to meet needs as they arise. The WPEF’s 501(c) (3) status as a non-profit organization means your donations are tax deductible. Please donate below.

Thank you! We truly appreciate your support.
