Y2Y Supporters: Sarah Palmer and Tom Plunkett

Sarah and Tom say their support for Y2Y means working together to preserve an incredibly unique and beautiful part of the world.

When you ask Sarah Palmer and her husband Tom Plunkett what attracted them to Y2Y, their response is simple. “It’s the people. Y2Y works with many different parties to achieve its mission,” explains the Calgary couple. Scientists conservationists, industry, ranchers, hunters, hikers, and more—and that makes it unique.”

Living in Calgary, at the central gateway of the Yellowstone to Yukon region, Tom and Sarah are reminded daily of the beauty of this region right in their backyard. Tom has been an investment advisor with a national firm since 1996. After growing up in the crowded east, the mountains and sky of the west became the playground for his athletic pursuits.

In 2008 Sarah joined the Y2Y Board of Directors and three years later became Chair of the Canadian board. “Having worked in Alberta as an environmental lawyer for 10 years,” she explains, “I have a sense of the challenges—and opportunities—facing this special region and I wanted to get involved to make sure it is here for years to come.”

These philanthropic, community values are deeply rooted in the Palmer family. In addition to Tom and Sarah championing Y2Y, the Palmer Family Foundation also supports Y2Y’s conservation programs on an annual basis.
