Ways To Give

We know that the nearly 250 chimpanzees in our care are in a far better place than where they came from in research, entertainment, or the pet trade. At Save the Chimps, we give them the best lives that we can, but we can’t do it without you. That’s why Save the Chimps makes it easy to help in ways that work for you.

In support of fostering trust and respect with our donors, we abide by this Donor Bill of Rights.
