Our online donation page is the best way to donate.  It is secure & safe and the donation is made available for our use to help the donkeys the day after you donate.  You will receive a donation tax receipt immediately via email unless you have opted to receive an annual receipt.  In this case, your online donation will be included in the year-end total.

Donation for the Donkeys – Giving Where It’s Needed
While many of our donors donate to our specific programs such as the Buy-A-Bale, Sponsorship, or BrayVe Hearts, others prefer to give a non-specific donation for us to use “Wherever It Is Needed Most”.   Donations for the Donkeys can be given on an annual basis or at special times during the year.  Some of these donations come from supporters who have a specific wish for the use of their donated dollars.  We are happy to gratefully accept all donations and we will try our very best to honour our donor’s wish provided it supports our mission, values and overall goal for the Refuge and its resident donkeys.

Our donor contributions arrive by mail, eTransfer (email to: donkeyrefuge@gmail.com), phone (250-679-2778), and in-person (we are currently closed due to Covid-19 & not accepting in-person visits) and every one is appreciated regardless of the amount. Some donors use third party sites such as PayPal and CanadaHelps. We hope that you will consider contributing directly right here on our website.

If you are having any issues with your donation or tax receipt – please check our Administration Notes for Donations

 

Join our 2022-23 Buy-a-Bale Hay Fundraiser!

Spring hasn’t even officially arrived and yet here we are planning ahead for the Donkey’s 2022-23 Winter Hay!

When we create our Donkey Care Plan for the winter, we plan for the worst and hope for the best.  If we experience a very cold winter this year, the Donkeys will need more hay per meal to help keep them warm and healthy.  Our hay suppliers have let us know that due to the increased cost of production, the price of hay will be going up significantly this year.

What we used to be able to get hay for ($10-12/bale) will now be upwards of $15/bale.  With this increase, we will need to raise an extra $10,000 for our hay costs, which brings our total hay budget to $60,000 for winter 2022-23.   We hope you will consider becoming a “Buy-a-Bale” Monthly Donor!

How to become a Buy-A-Bale Monthly Donor:

Your Monthly Donation to the “Buy-A-Bale Hay Fund” will help us place our order for the 4000 Bales of Hay needed to feed our Donkeys.

If you would like to become an online Buy-a-Bale Hay Fund Monthly Donor, you can donate online & check the “Make this a Monthly Donation” box after you enter your information.
