Get Involved


There are many ways to get involved with OLTA and its members. One way is to become a volunteer. Whether you’re looking for a long-term commitment or a shorter-term project-based opportunity, we want to hear from you. Visit our volunteer page for more details.



Another way to support OLTA’s commitment to advancing Ontario’s land trust movement is to become a donor. The most impactful way to donate is to become a monthly donor. You decide the monthly contribution amount and your credit card will be charged that amount on a monthly schedule. You can choose to cancel your monthly giving at any time. Become a monthly donor now!


“When I started in the land trust movement a decade ago the training and networking opportunities OLTA provided were absolutely critical to my personal success. They still are. I know how important consistent funding is to an operation like this and I see OLTA as the water that will float all boats in the land trust movement. So I became a monthly giver to help out a little. It’s an easy way to touch every land trust in Ontario, and once it’s set up, you don’t have to do anything to maintain it. I like easy.”

Mark Bisset, Executive Director, Couchiching Conservancy.



Tribute and In-Memoriam gifts

A donation to OLTA is a special way to celebrate a milestone such as a birthday, wedding or graduation; to say thank you to someone special; or to honour someone in a meaningful way. It is also a way to commemorate the life of a dear friend or family member while helping to create a lasting nature legacy. When you make a tribute gift, we will send a personalized card to your honouree or the next-of-kin to acknowledge your thoughtfulness.

Tribute gifts may be made by completing our Tribute Gift donor form (pdf) and sending it, along with payment, to OLTA at the address noted. Or, you can donate securely online through CanadaHelps and select the appropriate dedication option.


Workplace Giving

Many companies offer programs to match donations made by their employees to eligible charities. If you would like to double your gift, contact the Human Resources department where you work to determine if your gift to OLTA is able to be matched or to have OLTA added to your company’s list of eligible recipients. If your company does not currently offer a matching gift program, please ask to have one established!
