Another year has passed and through your generous donations the American Friends of Whistler continues to make a difference in, for many of us, our second community. Over the years we have been able to assist a great number of organizations across a diverse group of initiatives. It can only be done with your help and we hope you share our excitement for what has been achieved over the years.
With 2015 in the history books, since 2004, AFOW has provided almost $1.4 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 the arts, and the environment and outdoor recreation. More than $100,000 was donated in 2015 to the following organizations:
*Audain Art Museum for the permanent endowment of the museums’ foundation.
*Whistler Search and Rescue to improve communications in the backcountry surrounding Whistler.
*Canadian Society of Mountain Medicine for automatic CPR machines.
*Whistler Nursing staff training for rural emergency medicine.
*Whistler Community Services society for their Food Bank and outreach programs.
*Whistler Sailing Association for equipment for their adaptive programs.
