Donation Options



FVWC is committed to rehabilitating sick, injured and orphaned animals with the goal of releasing them back into their natural habitat. Your donation will ensure that our work continues. Donate to FVWC quickly, easily and securely. Click the DONATE button and make your donation today.


We admitted over 2,400 animals last year. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation at the membership level and help us give wildlife a second chance..


Your contribution towards the care of a wild patient provides monetary support for specialized diets, medications and specific care for the animal.


A celebratory or memorial donation is a wonderful way to pay tribute to someone special, and at the same time, make a difference in the lives of the wildlife cared for at FVWC. Gifts of Honor are acknowledged in our quarterly newsletter.

    Celebratory Donations acknowledge a loved one on their special day, or it can be given as a thank-you, or just to let someone know you're
       thinking of them.

    Memorial Gift Donations honor cherished loved ones – a family member, friend or favorite pet.


Check to see if the company you work for is a matching gift company. A matching gift company will match your donation (and sometimes volunteer work) with an equal or greater donation. The process for submitting a matching gift claim differs from company to company. Check with your personnel office for details.


There are many different items, large and small, that can help us with our work in animal care. Your generous donation of these much needed items helps us help them.


AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support FVWC every time you shop, at no cost to you. The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of your purchase price to our organization. This is a wonderful way to support FVWC.


Wildlife touch our hearts in so many ways and a meaningful way to show your love and concern for them is by making an estate gift to FVWC. A planned gift is a gift made today to protect the future of orphaned, abused, and sick wildlife. You'll find information below on the most popular planned giving options. Many planned gifts offer significant income tax deductions to the donor.

    Bequests  If you would like to donate to FVWC in a meaningful way, a bequest is a wonderful option. By including FVWC in your will you
   can make sure that your commitment to wildlife will continue beyond your lifetime. Bequests can be for a particular dollar amount or
   percentage of your estate,  or any asset such as art, jewelry, vehicles, land, or anything of value.

    Real Estate Gifts  We have outgrown our humble facility and struggle daily to give the wildlife the space and care they need to rehabilitate
   and be released back into the wild. With your support through a real estate gift, we can realize our goal to have the property necessary to build
   a new wildlife hospital designed for the needs of the animals and the people who care for them. By making a gift of real estate to FVWC you
   may be able to avoid capital gain taxes and receive a charitable tax deduction for the full market value of the property.

    Stocks and Bonds Your support through a gift of appreciated securities like stocks, bonds, and mutual funds can help us continue our
   mission. When donating assets that have appreciated in value it can benefit you, as well as FVWC. Donating appreciated securities is one of
   the most tax- wise opportunities available.

    Life Insurance Policies  New and existing life insurance policies can be donated. This gift allows you to provide a significant future gift to
   the animals cared for at FVWC and give you a charitable tax deduction for the approximate cash value of the policy while helping us further
   our mission.
