Updated for 2023

1 – CanadaHelps

First, you can donate via CanadaHelps.  CanadaHelps is a great organization that helps small non-profits like HWF handle online donations.  You don’t need to be in Canada to use CanadaHelps – but if you are, you’ll get the necessary receipt to deduct your donation to HWF – and everyone will get an immediate acknowledgement of their donation. There is a 4% service charge for CanadaHelps, so if you can give a bit more, that would be great!  You can use the link below to pick an account (like cam repairs, adopt a nest, or support Annie’s tracker) and make your donation.

Donate via CanadaHelps Now!

2 – Paypal

Next, we also welcome donations via PayPal.  PayPal also provides an immediate acknowledgement of your donation, and also has a 4% service charge – which is actually less than we’d have to pay to be able to receive donations via credit card – but again, if it’s an option, donating a bit more ($104 for a $100 donation) would be great.  The button to donate via PayPal in general is to the Right, or, use one of the specific purpose campaigns below.

Update – August 27, 2023 – The yellow Donate button below isn’t working correctly; for now, to donate via PayPal, please scroll down and click the Donate box under General Fund or one of the specific projects; we apologize for the inconvenience.  If you have questions, please email judyb@hancockwildlife.org – Thanks!  ~JudyB

General Paypal Donations (monthly included)

    Fund A Tracker

    How do our 35,000 to 50,000 Northern breeding eagles find their way down to the Vancouver area to winter here? Equally important, but a very different story, what routes do the 1000 breeding pairs of south west breeding BC eagles use to fly up North to find the early spawned-out salmon runs before the freeze-up drives them back south? We now know that eaglets who have only been flying for two weeks can get to Alaska in 2 or 3 days — incredible! Help us fund a Tracker so you can follow them on our WEB site and we can all learn where our eagles come from and go to. Each Bald Eagle Tracker costs $3000 and a Peregrine Falcon Tracker costs about $2000. They can last 3 years with only a $300 additional annual phone charge. PLEASE DONATE Please Fund a tracker so we can follow these magnificent birds. Thanks, David Hancock PS: If a sponsor wishes to come with us on a day’s trapping perhaps we can arrange a day.

  2. Esplanade Nest

    Esplanade Nest Refurbishment

    These donations go directly towards the refurbishment of the Esplanade nest. The nest, built in 2014, needs rebranching, which will require a bucket truck.

  3. Adopt a Nest

Your Nest Adoption will assist with the cost of the cams, maintenance and tech support that is required all year long as well as support the mission and mandate of HWF through ongoing education and activities that promote the conservation of wildlife.

    $8,173.00 donated
  4. Eagle Cams/Repairs

    Keeping our cams running on our nests is an ongoing activity, with maintenance and repairs happening year around.

    This helps with the expenses that come with running the Hancock Wildlife Foundation year round.

3 – In Person
