Donate to ARF

Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF) appreciates and acknowledges all donations to support its programs and services.  Contributions are frequently received in memory of human family and friends as well as animal companions.  Your contributions give the gift of a second chance to animals, many with life threatening medical conditions or injuries.  ARF depends on the generosity of our community and volunteers to help care for our animals.  We do not receive government funding.  We are an entirely volunteered based organization and no money is used for administrative salaries.  We are 501(c)3 non-profit organization and your donations may be tax deductible.  Please support ARF, you’ll be so glad you did!  Ready to make a difference?

Constant Companions Program

Be part of our Constant Companions Recurring Gift Program!  A recurring donation is a pre-authorized arrangement in which a donor authorizes A.R.F. Animal Rescue Foundation to make donation against a specific credit card account, for a specified donation amount.  Donors can set up a monthly, quarterly or annual recurring donation.  Recurring gifts provide a consistent, reliable income stream to the organization.  Donors often prefer this method of giving because it's easy to budget and it feels great to be making a difference in the lives of so many animals consistently, throughout the year.

Planned Giving

Planned giving is a tool that allows you the opportunity to ensure the A.R.F. Animal Rescue Foundation will be able to continue into the future.  Planned gifts include bequests through your will, gifts that provide income to you and others for life, gifts of life insurance, charitable lead trusts, and gifts of retirement plans.

Ways to give through wills and trusts:

  • Leave a specific dollar amount
  • Designate that a percentage of your estate be given through your will or living trust.
  • Give only the remainder, or residue, of your estate - that which remains after bequests to loved ones have been made
  • Provide for a gift of specific property-real estate, stocks or other items

An individual may designate that a bequest be used for the general purposes of A.R.F. Animal Rescue Foundation, or go to support a specific program. Funds can be set up as restricted or unrestricted.

You may choose to language such as the following for your bequest:

"I give and bequeath to A.R.F. Animal Rescue Foundation, a non-profit organization, located at 23W042 Woodcroft Drive, Glen Ellyn, IL 60137, the sum of $_______, to be used for the accomplishment of it's general purposes (or for a specific purpose, as indicated)."

Federal Tax ID 36-4236669 For more information, please contact us at info@arf-il.org or mail us at PO Box 4423, Wheaton, IL 60189.  All inquiries are held in strict confidence.

A.R.F. Animal Rescue Foundation recommends that you contact your financial advisor or attorney and ask for additional information on how you can set up a planned gift to benefit our organization.

Employer Matching Gift Programs

Your company can increase the impact of your gift dollar-for-dollar (and sometimes double that) and can inspire other fellow employees to do the same.  Don't forget to ask your employer if they will match your charitable contributions.

If your employer participates in a matching gift program, ask for the proper forms and procedures.  Fill in the required information and send the form along with your gift to Animal Rescue Foundation, IL PO Box 4423, Wheaton, IL 60189.  We'll take it from there - we will process the gift and the documentation for the matching gift.  It is that easy!
