Corporate Matching

Many businesses and corporations offer matching programs for employee donations to registered charities. Ask your employer’s human resources department to learn about any opportunities for corporate matching, so your gift can go even further for wildlife conservation.

Gorillas on the line

Gorillas on the Line

The mining of the ore coltan to build cell phone parts is leading to the habitat loss and endangerment of gorillas in the Democratic Republic of Congo. By recycling electronic devices through Gorilla SAFE programs, we lessen the demand for coltan and help protect gorillas in the wild.

Donate Your Car

Donate A Car Canada accepts donations of vehicles on behalf of the Wilder Institute/Calgary Zoo in support of critical conservation efforts. Donated cars, trucks, RVs, boats, and motorcycles will be recycled or sold at auction, and a tax receipt will be issued to you after the proceeds from your donation have been received.
