Transparency: Our pledge to our supporters
As a non-profit think tank, Canada West Foundation relies on donations. We are at our best when funded by a variety of groups: governments, corporations, individuals, and foundations all play a role. We not only acknowledge our supporters as a matter of course, we are proud to do so. Through their commitment, our supporters become part of an engaged public policy community. They tell us that they contribute because they value the work of the Foundation and want that work to continue. We think it’s pretty great that engaged citizens and organizations are willing to open their wallets in pursuit of good public policy.
