About your donation
About Your Donation: Your donation will be used in general support of VWS' efforts. 85 cents of every donated dollar goes toward conservation. Your donation is fully tax deductible to the extent of the law. The level of tax-deductibility depends on whether or not a free gift was selected and the amount donated. Please refer to the mailed acknowledgment letter to determine how much of your gift is tax-deductible.
maximize your donation
MAXIMIZE YOUR DONATION: If you do not want us to spend money on sending you the free gifts associated with your adoption, select "Donate without receiving Adoption Kit” when ordering. Please be aware that if you remove the adoption kit to maximize your donation, you will still receive an acknowledgment for the donation but will not receive ANY tangible items (such as the plush animal, photo, adoption certificate, etc.) associated with the donation. If you order over the phone, please tell the staff member that you would like to maximize your donation and do not want the mailed gifts. Ventana Wildlife Society thanks you for your additional commitment to our conservation efforts!
