Donations

Please donate and help save wildlife!

The Blue Ridge Wildlife Center is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

As a charitable organization, the Blue Ridge Wildlife Center does not charge for its services.  Our native wildlife do not have owners to pay for their care, and there is no state, federal, or local funding available to help with rescue and rehabilitation.  The BRWC is completely dependent on donations to operate the Center and cover food, housing, and medicine for native wildlife in need.  Please help us help these animals and at the same time have the satisfaction of knowing that your gift (great or small) makes a big difference.

 

The Society of Wildlife Guardians

The Blue Ridge Wildlife Center invites you to become a member of the Society of Wildlife Guardians.  This new giving society recognizes the Leadership Circles of giving with gifts of $5,000 and up, and additional Guardian giving circles of $500 and up.  The Center relies on annual leadership gifts to support the daily work of caring for our patients and underwriting our educational programs.

All gifts are important and support the daily rescue and rehabilitation of our native wildlife.  No matter the size, every gift counts!

Gifts-in-Kind

You can also help with donations of seed, dog and cat food, towels, cleaning supplies, etc.  These gifts-in-kind are vital to our ongoing success. Last year,  gifts-in-kind totaled over $35,000!  You can bring your gifts-in-kind directly to the Center or attend our Annual Baby Shower, usually in June, to learn more about native wildlife, support our gifts-in-kind program, and have a great day of family fun with our Education Ambassadors. Please see our Wish List for ideas! 

Planned Giving and Bequests

A charitable bequest or legacy gift not only helps to fund our general operating expenses, but can offer long-term financial sustainability, and ensure that we can carry on our work for generations to come. It can be as simple as adding a codicil to your will! It is possible to support the Blue Ridge Wildlife Center through:

  • Bequests (Gifts by Will)
