Donor Story: Creating systems change

Hi, I’m Suzanne BaroisI am pleased to have an opportunity to speak on behalf of Be the Change Earth Alliance and commend this grassroots organization for all the good work they do.  

My husband and I have attended BTCEA’s Annual General Meeting each year and have met most of the board members and staff. We have always been impressed with how much this small organization is able to do with the resources they have and inspired by the calibre of their work. The volunteers are enthusiastic, and the staff is highly motivated in their work with the teachers and students. I feel that every penny we invest in this organization is put to good use and much appreciated. 

Phillipe and I are residents of Vancouver, trained as a teacher & biologist, respectively. Though now retired, we do what we can to tread lightly on Mother Earth and support those who work tirelessly to educate others about the process of system change. 


By assisting teachers in broadening students' knowledge base and worldview, BTCEA is effecting change at a systemic level. The staff may be small, but this non-profit works in partnership with a variety of organizations and individuals to create more impact than they ever could have achieved alone. They are at the top of our charities list!
