The Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre depends on generous donations from individuals, businesses, and grants for running our day-to-day operations, and for special events and projects. We welcome all corporations or organizations to contact us for more information on how to give either one-time donations or ongoing support.

Event Sponsors and Donors
One of the best parts about fund-raising is hosting fun and original events, such as the Annual Art & Jewellery Sale, the Spring Baby Shower, and Death by Chocolate. These events are made successful in part by the helpful contributions of organizations that lend their financial support.
Project Sponsors and Donors
There are many opportunities to assistance to various special projects at the Centre. With our educational outreach program, we strive to bring about awareness of wildlife issues, such as preventing harm to animals, to the public. We also hope to renovate and improve the existing clinic space, giving more room and better facilities to the animals under our care.
Lush Charity Pot has funded our new fox enclosure. Lush donates to small, grassroots organizations that could use a helping hand to continue the incredible work they do, which includes the areas of environmental conservation and animal welfare.
Union Gas sponsored volunteers to help build our new aviary. They joined James Birmingham and his workers from Above the Waterline. Union Gas generously donated to pay for the materials needed, mostly lumber and nails.
The Ontario Trillium Foundation has granted funds for our existing shelter renovations, as well as staff salaries.
Mountain Equipment Co-op has granted funds for the new education outreach program.
Lee Valley has generously provided in-kind support for the education program.
And a special thank you to Dr. Diane Arthur, who has contributed a generous amount towards building the new SPWC clinic. This will help greatly in raising funds, which will go towards our long term plan of providing even better care and rehabilitation for our wild patients.
Ongoing Sponsors and Donors
One of the most crucial reasons to donate is to ensure that the ongoing needs and operations of the Centre are met. It is vital that the injured or orphaned animals receive quality veterinary and medical care throughout their stay. Our excellent team can guarantee this level of healing care only with your kindhearted support.
Please contact us if you are a corporation willing to donate annually or a one-time amount, or by donating supplies frequently.
