Since its launch in 2002 the American Friends of Whistler (AFOW) has contributed $1.2 million dollars to organizations in Whistler and the surrounding communities in areas such as health and human services, culture and the arts, environmental protection and outdoor recreation.
In 2015 some of our contributions included:
- Audain Art Museum Foundation grant helping to ensure the long-term financial success of the museum.
- Whistler Health Care Centre Nursing staff for training in rural emergency medicine.
- Whistler Food Bank and financial counseling services.
- Whistler Off-Road Cycling Association for an alpine trail construction.
The American Friends of Whistler was formed as a U.S. registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. As a US charity your contribution is U.S. tax deductible - just like one in your local community and 97.5% of contributions go toward making our adopted Whistler community a better place for everyone.
If you find yourself in Whistler for the upcoming holiday season please join us at our Annual Inside Scoop reception on Monday, December 28th at 5pm at Millennium Place in Whistler. The event will feature Mayor Nancy Wilhelm-Morden and Whistler Blackcomb’s Senior Marketing VP Stuart Rempel, who will give a first hand perspective on the most important issues facing our community. A representative from the Audain Art Museum will also present an update on their amazing project.
Thank you again for considering a contribution to the American Friends of Whistler, with your help we will continue to improve Whistler and the surrounding communities.
