Make a Leadership Gift

WSPA's Leadership Giving Society is made up of a committed group of individuals who believe in the value of investing in animal welfare. They understand that making long-term, sustainable improvements for animals takes planning, know-how, commitment - and of course - money.

The investment is worth it! In the past few years, our Leadership Gift Society members have seen how their support directly affects the scope, breadth and efficiency of WSPA projects around the globe.

Please join us!

You can become a member of our Leadership Giving Society by making a gift of $1,000 or more this year.

But what is my gift doing for the animals?
We know that you do not choose to give to WSPA in order to receive benefits for yourself, but to defend and improve the lives of animals. We would like to share some examples of the impact your Leadership Gift can have, and how your gift can make the world a place where animal welfare matters and animal cruelty ends.
