DONATE THROUGH PAYPAL
Would you like to make your online contributions through PayPal?Now you can do just that right here. Network for Good can also administer your gift to the Center. There, you may choose PayPal as your method of payment for a one-time or monthly gift.
In addition to purchasing items through our Web store, you can support the Center when you purchase gear through Patagonia ® or shop for good at iGive — where purchases from more than 680 stores can benefit our work. You can also help the Center by using GoodSearch (featuring GoodShop and GoodDining) — where every time you search using GoodSearch, the Center earns a penny. The Center is also a charity partner of the HealthyLife Foundation, a website that lets you shop while giving a portion of the money you spend to help fund the Center's mission.
WORKPLACE AND MATCHING GIVING
Will your employer match your gifts? If your company offers an Employee Matching Gifts program, you can easily make your hard-earned dollars go twice as far with a matching gift to the Center for Biological Diversity. Some employers will do even more than match your gift, and some will match your contributions even if you’re retired. When you send us your donation, just mail your company's matching gift form with your contribution and we'll take it from there. The Center is featured in United Way and Combined Federal Campaigns across the country.
GIFTS THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA SITES
The online platforms Network for Good and www.Causes.com (where you log in through Facebook) both encourage you, on your birthday and other giving occasions, to ask that your friends and relatives give you a present in the form of a donation to a nonprofit group — like the Center for Biological Diversity — through media like Facebook, Twitter and Google+. And they make it easy. So if you’re a social media fan and you like the Center, this is the perfect (and maybe most fun) way to support our work to save endangered species’ and ensure our planet’s future.
MEMORIAL OR TRIBUTE GIFTS

IN-KIND CONTRIBUTIONS AND VEHICLE DONATIONS
Are you thinking of selling or trading in a car, boat or RV? Why not donate it instead? As a charitable contribution, a vehicle that’s no longer useful to you can make a big difference to us. Our process is simple, quick and convenient. Donate a car, RV, boat or trailer. It will be picked up and auctioned off, and the proceeds will come directly to the Center for Biological Diversity. We’ll provide proper documentation for the tax deduction you’ll receive for your donation. Please call Vehicles for Charity toll-free at (866) 628.2277 with questions or to initiate your gift to the Center.
You can also donate other goods or services to the Center helping us keep our costs down and allowing us to focus our resources on saving endangered species and wild places.Anything useful you can give helps our worthy cause.

GIFTS OF STOCK
Take stock in the protection of our natural resources by giving stocks, bonds, and mutual fund shares to the Center for Biological Diversity. Your gift of stock will make a truly sound investment — helping to save what’s wild for future generations — while providing you with financial benefits.
If you own securities that have increased in value since they were purchased (at least 12 months ago), you may be able to completely avoid capital gains tax this year by contributing the securities instead of cash. You'll receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the asset, and you'll avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation of the securities. Sound too good to be true? It's not!
To make a gift, please contact our membership team for the Center’s current account information. Call toll-free at (866) 357.3349 or email us.
By including the Center for Biological Diversity as a beneficiary in your will or living trust, you can leave a lasting legacy of endangered species and wild places for generations to come (and possibly receive tax benefits now).
Your donation will entitle you to membership in the Owls Club, a group of special supporters who offer their vision and commitment to the future of our planet and of the Center for Biological Diversity. Whether you wish to leave us your real property or name us in your life insurance policy, your bequest gift will help ensure the continued strength of our programs and will make your voice for wildlife heard well into the next century.
