The monkeys need all of us to help them since they are being used to help us. It is costly to ensure our retirees get the top-notch care they deserve. Some labs will attempt to fund for 1-3 years of care, but the monkeys need funding for life.
Please provide your crucial tax-deductible donation today by clicking on the secure Paypal link to the right. Please also consider selecting one of our direct sponsorship opportunities, below (transactions handled through Paypal). Thank you!
Primates Incorporated is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Donations are tax-deductible as charitable contributions.
When you become a monthly donor with a gift of $12 per month or more, you become a member of River’s Club. River was one of the first monkeys at the sancturary and his playful personality warmed our hearts until his passing in Spring of 2020. We created River’s Club as a way to honor his legacy so that his spirit will always be part of our community.
Becoming a monthly donor is the best way to support the sanctuary because monthly donors provides stable, ongoing support we can count on to meet the daily needs of the monkeys. Monthly giving reduces administrative costs so more of your support goes directly to monkey care, and it’s convenient for you––your gift is automatically deducted from your credit card, and you can update or cancel your gift at any time!
As a member of River’s Club you receive 2 videos annually of a monkey eating fruit from the approved fruit list, a subscription to our monthly e-newsletter, and an opportunity to visit the Sanctuary and the memorial we have here for River.
