AFOW and Giving Tuesday

On Tuesday, November 29, charities, families, businesses, and foundations come together to celebrate generosity.

American homeowners in Whistler can give back to support the community through donations to AFOW, a U.S. registered 501(c) (3) non-profit organization which then distributes funds to Whistler charities.  Since it is a U.S. charity, your AFOW contribution is U.S. tax deductible — just like one in your local community.

Since 2004, AFOW has provided more than $2 million in financial support to registered, non-profit organizations, providing benefits to the Whistler community in the areas of health and human services, culture and arts, the environment and outdoor recreation.

More than $700,000 was donated in 2016 to the following organizations:

  • Audain Art Museum for the permanent endowment of the museum’s foundation.
  • Whistler Off Road Cycling Association for trail building.
  • BMX Society for a new track in Whistler.
  • Whistler Arts Council for program development.
  • Whistler Community Services Society for their Food Bank and outreach programs.
  • Spearhead Huts Society for the Kees and Claire Memorial backcountry hut.

With your assistance we can continue to make a difference. Please give serious thought to advancing the good work of AFOW. Our website covers the necessary gifting details or feel free to email us at and we will assist you.
