American Friends of Whistler assists an American ski club, The Downhill Derelicts, in their fundraising to benefit Whistler Adaptive Sports Program. Last year they presented a $CAD 20,000 gift to WASP and are on track to raise the bar this year. On Tuesday, March 13, they are sponsoring a race at the Blackcomb GMC Race Center.
Our mission is to enhance the Whistler community and foster greater understanding and friendship between Canadians and Americans. Starting as a registered U.S. 501(c)(3), we raised and distributed funds focussed toward health and human services, culture and the arts, and the environment and outdoor recreation. Since 2019, we have transitioned to facilitating direct charitable giving.
