Charlie Russell Estate Fund

$12,928 of $60,000 goal

Raised by 81 people in 4 months
Created May 12, 2018

Bears lost their best friend May 7th, Charlie Russell.

Our hearts are heavy as Charlie passed away unexpectedly post surgery.


Charlie dedicated his life educating the world how to co-exist peacefully with bears. His selfless giving and sudden death leaves his estate severely encumbered.



The family has setup the Charlie Russell Estate Fund to ease the costs of the estate and continue bear rehabilitation.

100% of funding after $30,000 will support bear rehabilitation centers across Canada.

Thank you to everyone who has donated! The campaign is going well, thanks to you.

Tonight (Friday, May 25th) at 5pm MT, CTV News will be airing an interview with my Dad, Gordon Russell, about his brother Charlie Russell's life and work. I hope you have a chance to see it. If not, it will be posted on their Facebook afterwards.

Thank you for your interest and support! Have a great weekend.
