“It was thanks to my nephews!” That was Joanne Perratt’s response when asked how she first came to support the Canadian Wildlife Federation.
When Joanne’s nephews were young, she gifted them a subscription to CWF’s children’s magazine. “It was my first introduction to CWF. I became interested and wanted to help.” Joanne has now been a loyal donor for more than 25 years.
Born and raised in Ottawa, Joanne worked with the National Research Council, but she has since retired to enjoy a more unstructured lifestyle. One constant in her life has been her regular support of CWF. “I love wildlife and have been really moved by some of the difficult situations they have to face. It’s why I respect CWF so much. They are trying to protect creatures that can’t protect themselves.” This is the reason Joanne has donated to CWF so faithfully over the years. It’s also why she has remembered the Canadian Wildlife Federation with a Legacy Gift in her Will.
