Monthly donors give us security. These reliable contributions mean overhead and admin is kept to a minimum. It also saves you from having to worry about writing cheques, filling out forms or remembering timelines. You can cancel your monthly contribution any time.
The EarthFair Store sells a huge variety of local and international books as well as gifts and accessories. It’s run by the us and proceeds from sales go directly back into our charitable work.
Leave a Gift in Your Will
To include a gift to the Lagoon Society in your will, follow these three simple steps:
Step 1: We recommend you seek professional help from a legal advisor with experience preparing wills to ensure wishes are honoured.
Step 2: It’s important to include our full name and charity number in your will. Without this, we may not receive your gift:
- Legal name: Ruby Lake Lagoon Nature Reserve Society
- Charitable registration number: 85237 7530 RR0001
Step 3: We recommend you share the following clause with your legal advisor: “I give all or (enter a portion or amount) of the residue of my estate, a specific cash legacy, or a specific asset, to Ruby Lake Lagoon Nature Reserve Society charitable registration number 85237 7530 RR0001. I request that funds be used for the highest priority need.”
We are here to help. For more information about creating a gift in your will, and donating RRSPs, RRIFs or Life Insurance, please contact us!

Contribute to the PODS Enterprise
We are undertaking the ambitious project of building the new Pender Ocean Discovery Station, or PODS, in downtown Madeira Park. You can read more about the project here. We are seeking financial and in-kind assistance from many different sources, as well as volunteer assistance.
Honour Someone Special
When you make a gift in honour of someone you love, we will mail the person of your choice a greeting or condolence card with your personal message. You will receive a charitable tax receipt for the full amount of your donation.
Sponsor a Program or Event, or Become a Corporate Sponsor
We welcome individuals or companies who would like to become one time or ongoing sponsors of our work in particular areas. We can offer myriad benefits for sponsors and we have a large and active audience and membership base that offer valuable exposure.
If you have another idea for how you would like to contribute to the Society’s financial well being, we would love to hear it! It could be through a workplace matching program, a gift of stocks, securities, RRSPs, or another creative idea. Get in touch by email, or call 604.883.9006 and we will be happy to brainstorm with you.
