Giving Day for Apes 2019

Become a Fauna Fundraiser for Giving Day for Apes 2019

On October 15, 2019, Fauna Foundation is joining Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS) for a global day of giving in support of qualified sanctuaries and rescue centers providing rehabilitation or long-term care for apes throughout Africa, Asia and North America. Fundraising began on September 15th, leading up to the 24-hour giving day on October 15.

With more than $1,600,000 raised and awarded during the first five events, Giving Day for Apes 2019 will certainly be the largest yet. It is also an incredibly powerful tool for sanctuaries like Fauna Foundation to get more social media visibility through peer-to-peer (P2P) fundraising.

Are you familiar with P2P fundraising? P2P allows supporters like you to participate in a fundraiser and to use your social network to help increase engagement (often through donation) on this important day of giving.

Obviously, the main goal of participating in GDA is to raise money for Fauna Foundation, however, it does sooooo much more!

  • It generates buzz on social media;
  • Allows us to reach new people and expand beyond our existing family of supporters;
  • Raises awareness around and about the importance of our work;
  • Gets more people interested and involved in volunteering.
