Leadership Giving

Be at the Heart of Gorilla Protection

A community of donors whose annual generous support enables high impact results for wild gorillas, their ecosystem, and for the communities of people who live near them in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Dian Fossey Leadership Circle

The Digit Society

The Digit Society of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund is a distinguished group of individual donors whose substantial ongoing commitment to the Fossey Fund embodies the spirit of Dian Fossey’s favorite gorilla, her beloved Digit. Digit Society members ensure the survival of gorillas through annual gifts of $10,000 and more.

The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund is the result of one woman who dared to make a difference, and her legacy is an enduring and powerful reminder that one person’s actions can truly change the world.

When you join the Digit Society, with an annual gift of $10,000 or more, you say ‘yes’ to make a difference, just as Dian Fossey did when she first climbed Mt. Karisimbi to find Digit and the other mountain gorillas so many years ago.

Become part of the Digit Society, today and help us continue Dian’s great work and Digit’s Legacy!

The Dian Fossey Leadership Circle is a community of donors whose generous annual support enables high-impact results for gorillas, their habitat and the communities near them in Rwanda and the DRC. Donors who give from $1,000 to $9,999 annually are welcomed into this circle.

Dian’s firm commitment to wildlife preservation is a reminder to all of us of the power of one person’s actions to literally change the world. It is in that same indomitable spirit that we invite you to join the Dian Fossey Leadership Circle today.
