Friends of Acadia preserves, protects, and promotes stewardship of the outstanding natural beauty, ecological vitality, and distinctive cultural resources of Acadia National Park and surrounding communities for the inspiration and enjoyment of current and future generations.
We are an independent organization of passionate people, inspiring those who love this magnificent place to make a real and lasting difference for Acadia.
This newly established fund will contribute to projects, equipment, and capital improvements to reduce carbon footprint and emissions across the park. Installing solar panels on park buildings and electric vehicle charging stations at strategic locations and replacing vehicles and equipment with electric or more fuel-efficient options will allow for Acadia to operate sustainability over time – both environmentally and financially.
Christie’s commitment to sustainability
For 250 years, Christie’s has helped steward some of humanity’s greatest artistic treasures across generations and cultures. As a leader in our market, we want to build a sustainable art business so that we can play another stewarding role: helping to protect the environment so that great natural beauty can be enjoyed by and inspire future generations.
In March 2021, we announced a global sustainability initiative, guided by three key pillars: commit, communicate and collaborate.
Christie’s is proud to support philanthropic initiatives through our networks, whether by facilitating the sale of artwork to benefit important causes; offering, when we can, our salerooms as a venue for fundraising events; or providing expert charity auctioneers.
