Corporations for Conservation

Thank you for making conservation a priority in your corporate plans! The rare Charitable Research Reserve would like to acknowledge and honour the conservation efforts of 25 leading companies by assigning them privileged status as one of rare’s Corporations for Conservation.

For some companies, this designation will be recognition of what they have already done to act as stewards of our environment via their business practices. For others, it will be aspirational, offering them rare’s expertise and support as they work toward deeper conservation practices. For all, it will be acknowledgement that their annual support of rare at the level of $5,000/year for a minimum of 5 years, is a clear sign of their support for conservation.


The Corporations for Conservation effort at rare comes with tailored recognition to help business leaders achieve their goals. Recognition will include

  • publicity through various print and electronic media to let others know what your company does to help conserve;
  • a dedicated Corporations for Conservation webpage at sharing leadership profiles of executives and/or employees to build pride inside your company and to set an example for others;
  • access to rare’s experts for presentations and demonstrations (dependent on availability);
  • guided tours for employee and/or client groups;
  • priority access to rare facilities for corporate events (dependent on availability);
  • invitation to an annual appreciation reception and;
  • listing on rare’s Founders Wall, in perpetuity, for those joining before the end of A Natural Investment campaign and on all other donor lists associated with the campaign.


Including rare in your conservation plans by becoming one of 25 Corporations for Conservation shows your company’s drive for leadership — setting an example that also encourages others to take steps toward environmental sustainability. It indicates that economic excellence and a high quality of life can go together to create unprecedented opportunities.

This conservation effort and the recognition that goes with it connects customers and employees to a cause that matters for everyone. It can lead to workplace giving and healthy living.
