The EcoStar monthly giving program offers us a crucial and reliable source of income which helps us to grow. These donations are an important independent funding source that reduce our reliance on government funding.
Becoming an EcoStar is simple:
1. You decide on the amount that you would like to donate each month (min. $10)
2. You automatically become a CAFNEC member (optional)
3. You receive our quarterly magazine, Ecotone plus all member updates and invitations
4. You can stop these payments at any time by contacting our office.
