The Primate Rescue Center is a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization that receives no direct funding from the federal government or the state of Kentucky. We rely on donations of money, supplies, and in-kind services from individuals, service providers, and our corporate partners. We are fortunate to enjoy corporate partnerships with Kroger, Whole Foods, the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, and West 6th Brewing Company. You can help too! See our Wish List for an up-to-date list of the food items, equipment and supplies of particular items we need most.
We accept donations both by check and online via Paypal or GIVEDIRECT, a nonprofit service that processes credit-card payments for us. (Complete information about how to donate is available here.) Those interested in supporting our lifesaving work may also donate vehicles, securities or make in-kind donations. Contact us for details.
The PRC is proud to have been designated a Better Business Bureau Accredited Charity, which assures our commitment to accountability and ethical charitable practices. In addition, we are one of fewer than 2,000 nonprofit organizations (of more than 1 million operating today) granted the Seal of Excellence by the Independent Charities of America—a distinction only awarded to those able to demonstrate the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and transparency. In 2013 we were voted a Great Nonprofits Top-Rated Nonprofit. Finally, the U.S. Government has accredited us to participate in the Combined Federal Campaign, deemed to be the world’s most exclusive fund drive.
To help you further assess our success in fulfilling our mission, each June we post online our Annual Report (764 KB PDF) from the prior calendar year. Also online is our most recent IRS Form 990 (575KB PDF), which provides details on how revenues are raised and spent. These documents include financial data from our annual IRS tax filings and our final audited financial statements.
