With your support, the Greenbelt will remain a lasting environmental legacy for Ontario. The work of the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation supports a sustainable local food system, protects natural heritage, and bolsters rural economic vitality.

Imagine a future for Ontario with a thriving rural economy, clean water and air, healthy soils and active outdoor recreation. The Greenbelt makes this future possible. By donating and including the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation in your estate planning, you are contributing to a lasting environmental legacy.

The Greenbelt is the key to a healthy and prosperous future for generations of Ontarians. Maintaining our wetlands, woodlots, and watersheds will preserve the vital ecological services we rely on for fresh water, clean air, and biodiversity. Together, these features ensure a quality of life is preserved and passed on to the future.



Jill decided to support the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation. After speaking to her financial advisor, Jill discovered that she would have a greater net tax benefit by donating shares directly to the Foundation, rather than selling her shares and donating the cash value.
