We are excited to announce the launch of this year’s Summer Matching Gift Challenge in support of the Sanctuary’s Enrichment Program!

Save the Chimps’ Board Members have provided a $55,000 match with the power to double the donation you make before a deadline of August 31st.

All gifts made during this month’s Summer Matching Gift Challenge will be matched dollar-for-dollar. Please donate today!

In addition to supporting the daily care of our over 250 chimpanzee residents, your doubled donation can help provide many of the special “enrichment items” that bring joy and stimulation to our residents each day.

What are enrichment items?

Enrichment items can be as simple as a ball or a blanket. Leo loves playing with plastic toys, for example, and Chrissy enjoys snuggling with stuffed animals. Other enrichment items are larger or more complex such as the chimpanzees’ play structures on each of the twelve islands.

Any gift you give can be doubled by the Summer Matching Gift Challenge, and will help to ensure we receive the full amount before the August 31 deadline.

Whether simple or complex, enrichment is vital to the well-being of chimpanzees. From friendship with other chimps to food puzzles, toys, hammocks, swings, and outdoor climbing structures, the chimps’ lives are enhanced by it all.

Now is a great time for you to make a difference in the lives of more than 250 rescued chimpanzees. Remember, only donations received on or before August 31st will be doubled, so please give today if you can. Thank you!

With gratitude,
