Matching Gifts

Matching gifts are an easy way to double or even triple your donation to Voice For The Animals! Matching gift programs are offered through participating companies. The companies typically match all or a percentage of their employees’ contributions to charitable organizations, making the employer a partner in employees’ personal philanthropy. To make a matching gift, simply obtain a matching-gift form from your employer’s personnel office, fill it out, and return it to Voice For The Animals with your contribution.

 

Gifts In-Kind

Some donors take the opportunity to give to Voice For The Animals by providing tangible items such as computers, office equipment, cat or dog food or other items related to our Rescue and Adoption Program. Voice For The Animals can help you determine the acceptability of gifts as well as potential tax benefits of gifts in-kind. Check out our Donate Supplies page to see some of our most need supplies!

Gift Membership

You can give a gift membership in someone’s name! A gift membership is a wonderful way to mark a special occasion, honor a friend or co-worker, or celebrate a birthday or special event. For your donation of $25 or more, a personalized acknowledgement will be sent to the recipient, letting them know of your thoughtful gift in their honor.

 

Memorial Gift

A memorial gift is a meaningful way to preserve the memory of friends, family members or animal companions while helping animals in need! Memorial Gifts are also a wonderful way to pay tribute to the passing of a loved one or remember a cherished friend. For your donation of $25 or more, a personalized acknowledgement will be sent to let the recipient know of your thoughtful gift in memory of their loved one. If you would like us to honor your animal companion on our website, please send a photo and a little information about your beloved companion.

 

Planned Giving

You can help the animals by leaving a gift in your will or estate plan. Making a planned gift may allow you to give more than you ever thought possible and, at the same time, you may experience tax advantages or income for a number of years or life.
