A Soaring View and Sincere Thank You!

This Friday, we are happy to share the news that we met our $25,000 goal for the 2019 Golf Cart Campaign. Thanks to many generous donors, we have the funds to purchase 10 gently used golf carts to replace one-third of our fleet. These carts are coming off of their initial lease from a golf course and are in excellent shape. We will be taking delivery in the very near future and will let you know when they arrive!

And, thanks to some creative thinking and generous spirit, we also have leads on future carts and one donated cart that we are picking up tomorrow from a wonderful individual donor in Florida. Our supporters are the best!

These carts help cover the ground we need to reach the chimps. And it’s a lot of ground to cover! Want to see for yourself?

Enjoy this unique “bird’s eye view” of the Save the Chimps’ sanctuary!

From all of us at Save the Chimps, and from the nearly 250 chimpanzees who are living out their lives here in comfort and dignity, thank you. We truly appreciate your kindness, generosity, and continued support.

Thank you for improving the lives of the chimps…and their caregivers!

*You can also cover this ground and see the tremendous view firsthand during our 2019 Chimpathon. There is still time to register!

Go, cart, go! Getting where we need to be.

With only three days left to our 2019 Golf Cart Campaign, we are still short of our goal. We need your help!

Please make your gift now to provide much-needed transportation for Save the Chimps staff.

The 10 gently used golf carts we need to buy are not a luxury. They are a necessity. The chimps rely on us, and we rely on the golf carts to provide efficient, economical transportation around the sanctuary—for everything from deliveries to emergencies.

We set our goal at $25,000 to ensure we could purchase 10 used carts that are in reliable working order. If we can’t raise the full amount, we will have to purchase fewer and hope that others don’t break down. Please help!

Support this urgent campaign now.

Some of our old golf carts just aren’t reliable anymore. We’ve gotten every mile we can out of them.

We can get a great deal on 10 gently used carts to replace a portion of our fleet, but we need to raise the $25,000 first. And now there are only three days left.

Thanks for helping! And thanks for being a friend to the chimps.

With gratitude,

Teresa A. Newmarch
