TODAY IS THE DAY!

 

Today is Giving Day for Apes—a day dedicated to raising awareness and individual giving in support of great apes in sanctuaries.

Please help Save the Chimps! 24-HOUR GOAL: $48,000

Last year’s campaign was an incredibile success! Thanks to our amazing supporters, we raised $51,269 from 551 supporters.

This year’s goal is to help to raise critical funding needed to continue to improve and expand the Sanctuary as we strive to enrich the lives of the current chimpanzee residents and prepare for those still to come.

Please donate now so we can reach our Giving Day for Apes goal.

Over the summer, supporters like you helped the Sanctuary begin to build new climbing structures. Today, there are more chimps in imminent need and the Sanctuary needs to be ready to welcome them home, and to begin construction of another island. This is a huge project and we need your help.

Giving Day for Apes is an amazing opportunity for the Sanctuary to win critical funding and bonus prizes.

  • Most money raised
  • Greatest number of individual donors
  • Plus random hourly $150 awards!

Help spread the word by forwarding this to your friends or sharing the event on Facebook.

If you’ve already given or have started your own Save the Chimps fundraiser, thank you!

In Gratitude,

Molly Polidoroff
Executive Director

A Giving Day for Apes Message from the Executive Director

You can help chimps just like Larry, Lisa Marie, and Pepsi come home to sanctuary by supporting the Giving Day for Apes fundraiser going on now.

We continue to be grateful for your support and thank YOU for everything you make possible for beloved chimpanzee residents of the Sanctuary. Over 800 are still awaiting retirement from research laboratories, entertainment, and the pet trade. Let’s bring more home.

In Gratitude,
Molly
