Ensuring the development of recreational birdwatching and contributing to the conservation of birds and their habitats: this is the mission of QuébecOiseaux. Achieving this mission is contingent on the commitment and support of the organization’s members and supporters. Whether they are made through our various funding activities such as the Grand Défi, our compensation program or our fundraiser evening, or in any other way that suits you outside of these activities, your donations represent a vital source of support. This support enables us to act for the benefit of Quebec’s avifauna.
Thanks to our cherished donors and their strong devotion to our organization and to birds in general, we are able to accomplish more in terms of protecting and promoting bird life.
Three ways to donate
- Donation with matching funds in support of QuébecOiseaux and its mission;
- Donation to the QuébecOiseaux Dedicated Fund;
- Donation to the Birds and citizen science in Quebec Fund.
Donations collected by QuébecOiseaux are eligible for Placements Sports et Loisirs, a donation matching program set up by the Direction du sport, du loisir et de l’activité physique of Quebec’s Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur. This program aims to encourage individuals and businesses to support national recreation organizations. Thus, for every donation of $25 or more, Placements Sports et Loisirs will contribute between 50 and 300% of the amount received. Your donation will therefore be enhanced and will contribute significantly to helping QuébecOiseaux carry out its mission.
QuébecOiseaux is unable to issue tax receipts. Do you absolutely need such a receipt? It is still possible to support our mission and benefit from tax advantages by making a donation to the QuébecOiseaux Dedicated Fund set up by the Fondation de la faune du Québec or to KBF Canada’s Birds and Citizen Science in Quebec Fund. Please note, however, that donations made to these two alternative funds are not eligible for the Placements Sports et Loisirs program.
One time donation
Simply indicate the amount of your donation to QuébecOiseaux in the box below and click on the “Review and pay” button. See below for making a donation to either of the alternative funds.
Note : Minimum donation of 25 $. It is also possible to send your donation by post or to contact us by phone.
In memoriam donation
You can honour a departed relative, friend or colleague by making a donation in their memory. QuébecOiseaux will recognize this donation in its publications.
If you wish to make a planned donation (e.g. legacy gift, securities gift, designation of QuébecOiseaux as beneficiary of one’s life insurance policy, retirement savings plan or pension fund), we recommend that you consult with your financial advisor, notary or accountant in order to choose the best option and plan your donation wisely in accordance with your situation.
The QuébecOiseaux Dedicated Fund was set up by the Fondation de la faune du Québec to support our conservation projects for species at risk and other important species identified by the Foundation. The latter issues a tax receipt for donations in excess of $125. The donation should be made by cheque made out to the Fondation de la faune du Québec, with a note clearly indicating that the donation is for the QuébecOiseaux Dedicated Fund. The cheque can be sent directly to the following address:
Fondation de la faune du Québec
1175 avenue Lavigerie, bureau 420
Québec (Québec) G1V 4P1
Please note, however, that donations made to the Fondation de la faune du Québect are not eligible for the Placements Sports et Loisirs program and consequently cannot be matched.
KBF Canada has set up a fund to support projects that aim to acquire and share knowledge about birds through citizen participation in collaboration with QuébecOiseaux. This foundation issues a tax receipt for any donation, which can be made directly on its website.
On this website, you will find details about the nature of the project created by the Foundation and how to support it. Please note, however, that donations made to KBF Canada’s project are not eligible for the Placements Sports et Loisirs program and consequently cannot be matched.
