Ways to Give to Save Gorillas and Help People
Besides making a one-time donation to help save gorillas, there are many options:
Schedule Your Giving
To make an even bigger impact, on the donation form, authorize regular donations via your credit card on the dates that you want to give. Many supporters find the monthly selection most convenient. Scheduled commitments provide reliable funding for all of our programs.
Give In Honor or In Memory
Celebrate special events or the memory of special people in your life by making an honorary or memorial gift.
You can also contribute by designating contributions that you make to United Way, Combined Federal Appeal and other workplace giving programs. Double your donation with Corporate Matching Gifts through Independent Charities of America. Click here to donate and check the box “Would you like your employer to match?” to find your employer. If you give in any way other than directly to the Fossey Fund, let us know about your gift at email@example.com so that we may begin sending you our newsletter.
Combined Federal Campaign
The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is the largest workplace giving campaign in the U.S. which allows federal employees to support nonprofit organizations through either a one-time gift or a payroll deduction. If you are a federal employee, please consider participating in the next fund drive. To support the Fossey Fund through the CFC, please enter CFC code number 11249 on your pledge card during your workplace campaign. You will find us in your campaign brochure under Wild Animals Worldwide. The Fossey Fund also participates in state and local campaigns. Check to see if we are listed in your workplace campaign.
Make a Gift of Stock
By transferring appreciated stock or securities to the Fossey Fund, you may be eligible for a tax deduction equal to full fair market value of the stock, avoiding the capital gains tax on the stock's increased value. Contact 1 (800) 851-0203 (Options #2) or e-mail Anna Hutto for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make a Gift Through Your Estate
Including the Fossey Fund in your will, giving a gift of life insurance or making any other planned gift, enables the Fossey Fund to plan for innovative future programs and weather the unexpected difficulties inherent in gorilla conservation. Making a planned gift will include you in the Dian Fossey Legacy Society. To alert us about your planned gift or to ask questions, call 1 (800) 851-0203 (Option #2) or email our Chief Advancement Officer, Anna Hutto, at email@example.com. We recommend that you consult your attorney or tax advisor about how tax benefits may apply to your specific situation.
Donate In-Kind Gifts
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have items or services you are interested in donating. We thank you for thinking of ways to offset our operating costs with inkind donations.
