As a 501c3 charity, the chimpanzees at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest rely on donations from people like you.
We've been able to do a lot in a short amount of time because we use income very efficiently, we take advantage of many in-kind donations, we utilize volunteers in every aspect of the organization, and we keep our expenses low. Your donation will go far with us!
Ways to Give:
You can sponsor a day of sanctuary for just $100. You pick the day! Give in your own name or as a tribute to someone else. We'll be sure to mention your day on the blog. Just fill out the Sponsor a Day online donation form specifying your chosen day or let us know the day when you send your check. It's as easy as that!
There are several levels with different benefits to choose from. See the Chimpanzee Pal page for more information about this program and the sponsorship levels and benefits or go straight to the Chimpanzee Pal donation form.
