Lake Windermere Ambassadors
Our Funders

Our Funders

The Ambassadors are a registered charitable, non-profit Society whose core administrative funding comes from an agreement with two local governments, the District of Invermere and the Regional District of East Kootenay. Additional funds to help deliver our scientific monitoring, education, and governance activities are applied for on an annual basis by submitting grant applications to various foundations and trusts, and through community donations.
