Along with core partnerships with post-secondary institutions, independent educators, and resort associations, the Whistler Institute has been generously supported by Visionary Founders: McLean Group and Raindrop Foundation, Patrons: Duane Jackson, Bill Kunzweiler, Bob & Sue Adams, as well as grants from the Katz Amsterdam Charitable Trust, Whistler Community Foundation, Whistler Blackcomb Foundation, and the Resort Municipality of Whistler.
In the immediate term, The Whistler Institute is seeking financial support in order to develop and deliver educational opportunities within Whistler and embed thought leadership as a fundamental pillar of Whistler’s place-branding, while contributing to the overall well-being of this community.
Founders value building education as a pillar of the Whistler’s social and economic fibre. Founders are passionate about diversifying Whistler’s social, economic and cultural community. Financial support makes the Global Perspectives speaker series possible and ensures funding of annual programs.
The Whistler Institute is the operating name of the Whistler Institute of Learning Society, a registered Canadian charity. Charitable tax receipts are issued in accordance with CRA guidelines.
