2019 Love Cortes Appeal

We urgently need to raise $35,000 to support our vital conservation and education programs.  

From rich forests, beautiful lakes and a stunning coastline, to a wealth of endangered species, Cortes Island is a unique place on the planet. We are working to ensure it stays that way for years to come.  

Donations of any size are very welcome and much appreciated. Each will help give Cortes Island a greener future. Please help us if you can. All donations are tax-deductible.

DONATE securely online

• Mail a cheque payable to Friends of Cortes Island to Box 278, Mansons Landing  BC V0P 1K0
• Drop off your donations at the FOCI office at 983 Beasley Road

An inspiring legacy 

FOCI began with a small group of concerned Cortes Island citizens wanting to maintain the integrity and beauty of our precious island. Since then, we’ve evolved into a model for environmental stewardship and education. Recent successes:

  • Lake health monitoring
  • Manson’s Spit Conservation
  • Basil Creek Restoration

Looking Ahead

We’re now entering our 30th year and there’s so much more to do! We want to: 

  • Preserve our coast
  • Conserve species at risk
  • Restore salmon populations
  • Care for our lakes
  • Protect our forests
  • Inspire youth eco-leadership

Please consider contributing what you can.

Thank you for your generosity!
