The Salt Spring Forum is truly a community organization in the sense that it is supported by people who live here. Local volunteers help us to host events, local businesses and organizations support our work in a variety of ways, and most crucially – many Salt Spring Island residents make tax-deductible donations to the Forum.

We are incredibly grateful to all those listed below for the generous contributions they made to support our initiatives – as well as to the Salt Spring Islanders who chose to give anonymously. Donations range from $5 to $10,000. People give what they can. Their support allows us to bring world-renowned thinkers and leaders to the island, while setting our ticket prices and fees at break-even rates to include as many islanders as possible in our discussions.

Donations large and small have helped to strengthen civil dialogue on the island, while supporting the good work of other local organizations at the same time. They have contributed to the development of conceived-on-Salt-Spring solutions to complex challenges. Above all they have helped to keep Salt Spring an interesting and intellectually vibrant place to live.
