As a 501c(3) non-profit sanctuary, the PRC relies on the generosity of individuals to fulfill our mission of providing lifetime care to animals in need. Raising funds to support the nutritional, environmental, psychological, intellectual, and medical needs of the primates is no small task. We work all year long—planning fundraisers, reaching out to supporters and working with philanthropic organizations—to support the nearly 50 primates in our care. As 2017 comes to a close, we are striving to meet our year-end donation goal. Fortunately, there are two amazing fundraisers that we will be participating in over the next two months that will help get us there.
Giving Tuesday, November 28th
One of the most important fundraisers for the Primate Rescue Center takes place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. There’s Black Friday, Cyber Monday and then Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday is a global giving movement made possible through social media. This day exists to inspire charitable giving in the holiday season. It’s easy to participate. This LINK to our Razoo donation page is actively accepting donations and will be until 11:59pm on November 28th. You can select to give any amount you choose. Fortunately, Razoo is waiving all platform fees for Giving Tuesday (credit card processing fees still apply) to maximize the impact of your gift. Your donation will go directly to fund our animal care program!
The Good Giving Challenge, November 29th through December 31st
If you miss Giving Tuesday, don’t despair! The Good Giving Challenge is another opportunity to let your holiday giving spirit shine. Across the bluegrass state, community organizations will be raising funds in this year’s Good Giving Challenge. This online campaign – organized by the Bluegrass Community Foundation and Smiley Pete Publishing – promotes charitable giving to a select group of organizations based in Kentucky. Please note, this campaign is open to donors worldwide, not just within Kentucky. In order to participate, just click HERE to access our donation page.
The donations raised through these giving events make such an impact in the primates’ lives. They help us provide the monkeys and apes with the proper nutrition, engaging enrichment, supportive environments and care. You can make your year-end gift to the Primate Rescue Center by participating in our upcoming giving events. With your donations, as well as your active participation in our social media platforms, we can continue to not only raise the necessary funds to support the 9 chimpanzees and 38 monkeys and gibbons under our care, but also share our mission to end the plight of primates. As always, your donation is tax-deductible.
