Canopy’s Donor Community

Canopy’s donors are a cornerstone of our success, not only as financial investors in our mission but also as thoughts partners and community members.

Many Canopy donors are also volunteers, program beneficiaries, community leaders, and supporters of other local nonprofits. Along with our dedicated volunteers, partners, and institutional funders, they represent a big-hearted network of people committed to creating communities where people and nature thrive. We are profoundly grateful to each one of them!
