Donate FAQ

Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes, Journey's End is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and donations are tax-deductible. Our IRS tax ID number is 59-3529572.

Can I get a receipt for tax purposes?
Yes. If you donate online using PayPal or NetworkForGood (see below), that web site will provide you with a receipt. If you donate by check, we will mail you a receipt if you request one, or if the donation amount is $250 or more.

How can I donate online?
You may donate online using PayPal...just click the Donate button on our Donate page or on the right side of any page on our site. It is not necessary to have a PayPal account if you use the PayPal web site to donate by credit card.

You may also donate online using NetworkForGood...just click on the NetworkForGood logo on the Donate page or on the right side of any page on our site. The NetworkForGood site will ask you to create a basic profile, including a user name and password, but you may remain anonymous when you make the donation if you prefer.

I'd like to donate using Visa, MasterCard, or American Express. Should I use PayPal or NetworkForGood?
Either way is fine. The fee is less with PayPal so more of your donation goes to the animals, but NetworkForGood allows you to remain anonymous if you wish, and their web site provides additional resources such as nonprofit reports. Both sites are secure and easy to use.

How much of my donation goes to caring for the animals?
With PayPal, there is a fee of 2.2% plus $.30, which is paid by Journey's End.

With, the fee is 5%. You may choose to pay the fee yourself to maximize your donation, or you may choose to have Journey's End pay the fee.

The rest of the donated amount goes directly to Journey's End to provide care for the animals, including food, medicine, building maintenance, utilities, and other expenses.

Can I make a donation "In honor of" or "In memory of" someone?
Yes, you can specify the name(s) of a person or animal that you would like to donate in honor of, or in memory of if they have passed away. Any such tributes will be included in our newsletter. Please specify "In memory of" if applicable; otherwise we will assume it is "In honor of".

If donating via PayPal, you can use the "Add special instructions for the Recipient" field on the "Review your Donation" page.

If donating via NetworkForGood, you can use the "Dedication" field.

If you are mailing a check, just use the memo line on your check, or enclose a note.
