Make a tribute gift "In Honor Of" or "In Memory Of" someone special
A donation to IDA "In honor of" someone is a unique way to commemorate special events like birthdays and anniversaries or milestones like graduations, weddings and births. You can also make a donation "In honor of" an animal companion's birthday or other special occasion. IDA will gladly notify the individual of your donation to IDA in their honor.
If you want to pay tribute to a loved one, human or non-human, who has passed away, you can make a donation "In memory of" that individual. Donating to IDA "In memory of" someone allows you to pay your respects to them by supporting the vital work that IDA does on behalf of animals. IDA will notify anyone you specify, such as family and mutual friends, of your donation in memory of the dearly departed.
Join IDA's Monthly Giving Program - Animal Advocates!
Your support is vital to IDA's efforts to protect the rights, welfare and habitats of animals. Monthly giving is a great way to support IDA and helps us reduce our printing costs and save paper at the same time. With a monthly contribution of $5 or more, you will receive our IDA magazine as well as periodic updates on our many campaigns.
Planned gifts provide an opportunity both to realize your personal financial goals and to strengthen the work of In Defense of Animals for the future. Through a planned gift, you may be able to increase your current income, or provide additional retirement income, while reducing income and estate taxes. With careful planning, it is possible to reduce or eliminate income taxes (including capital gain) and transfer taxes (including gift, estate, inheritance and generation-skipping). You can enjoy these tax savings while turning appreciated assets into an income for yourself or others. Planned giving is a tool that helps you to achieve your goals for IDA and all of the animals we strive to help, and enhances your financial plans and security.
Donate Your Old Vehicle
Donating your old vehicle will directly save animals' lives and ensure that the vital and life-giving work of IDA continues unabated. Proceeds generated from the auction of your used car, boat, RV, van, truck, or motorcycle create funds immeasurably benefiting animals around the world. Your donated vehicle, a tax-deductible contribution, does not need to be registered or even in running condition. We will arrange to have the vehicle picked up or towed from almost anywhere. For more information, call Sage at 415-448-0048, ext. 218 or after hours you can call 800-240-0160 or simply click here. There is a form to fill out and you can write off up to $500 for the donation.
