Endowment Fund

Securing the future of IISD Experimental Lakes Area

Our Endowment Fund ensures that the world’s freshwater laboratory can continue to safeguard our water supplies for the next 50 years and generations beyond.

Every dollar you donate will be matched, so you are effectively doubling your contribution to the future of fresh water.

Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Michael Paterson, Gail Asper and family, every dollar donated to our Endowment Fund will be matched up to $1,000,000 over the next five years.

So what are you waiting for? Give today and watch your donation double!
