CAN Big Give Update (last email, we promise)

A third item from one of our fellow Canadian organizations in the Bay Area.


Canadian Studies Big Give
Dear Friends of Canadian Studies,
Pardon this intrusion into your inbox. We promise this is the last you will hear from us today. Some great news, as of 2:00 PM Pacific Time, we have raised over $17,000 from 15 donors! We still have $8,000 to go to meet our goal. Will you take a moment and make a contribution to support Canadian Studies?
Support Canadian Studies… For the undergraduate students. In the Fall 2018, Canadian Studies sent Berkeley undergraduate Fallon Burner to the First Nations Language Keepers Gathering in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. She said “I couldn’t have done this without your help and I em eternally grateful!” Support Canadian Studies to support undergrads like Fallon — Donate here!
Support Canadian Studies… For the graduate students. Canadian Studies Hildebrand Fellow Erika Brown is researching how direct income transfers can reduce food insecurity in Ontario. Kimberly Thien Huynh is currently researching the release of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, from wetlands, including Burns Bog in Delta, British Columbia. Support Canadian Studies to support grad students like Erika & Kimberly — Donate here!
Support Canadian Studies… For the public programming. Canadian Studies Colloquia events are open to EVERYONE. Recent topics have included the US/Mexico/Canada Agreement (also known as “New NAFTA”), “Why Canadians Love Immigration and Americans Aren’t So Sure,” “The Performativity of Land Acknowledgments and Settler Whiteness” and “Understanding the 2015 Canadian Election.” Support Canadian Studies to support public education programs like the Colloquium series — Donate here!
Support Canadian Studies… For the research. In 2017 Canadian Studies convened a team of scientists and First Nations and tribal leaders to draft a short policy paper on a modernized Columbia River Treaty. This publication was influential in the Canadian-American treaty negotiation process, and was read by high-level policymakers in Ottawa. In May 2019 we will convene another team on the future of the Columbia River Treaty. The upcoming Berkeley workshop was discussed by negotiators in Washington DC. Support Canadian Studies for the research — Donate here!
Support Canadian Studies… for the tax deduction! Did you know that UC Berkeley is an IRS 501(c)(3) and a Revenue Canada recognized tax-exempt organization, so your contribution may be tax-deductible on American or Canadian federal income taxes? (consult your tax professional). Support Canadian Studies for the tax deduction.
