Make a Donation

How-You-Can-Help-Make-a-DonationThe simplest and most effective way to help NAVS advance smarter, more humane science is with a donation in support of our efforts.

As a national leader of advocates for animals and humane science, we achieve results by advancing innovative, human-relevant research methods and by providing safer, cost-effective educational resources in the life sciences for students and teachers. We empower advocates by providing timely information on pending legislation and the ways animals are used in science so they can easily take effective action, spread the word and make informed, compassionate choices. And through the NAVS Sanctuary Fund, we provide emergency financial assistance to support animals retired from laboratories and those threatened by natural and man-made disasters.

We are able to do all of these things because of the generosity of our supporters.

There are a variety of ways in which you can support NAVS:

One-Time Donation

Your gift of any size will help us continue our proud history of promoting positive solutions to replace cruel, costly and flawed animal experiments with modern, innovative methods of research, safety testing and education. Your gift can be made using our secure online form. Should you wish to contribute over the phone, please call toll-free 1-800-888-NAVS (6287).

Automatic Monthly Giving

Becoming a monthly donor is an easy way to ensure that we have the necessary, steady funding for our advocacy, education and humane science programs throughout the year. By contributing on the same day every month, you can feel confident that even a modest donation will make a big difference in the lives of animals in need.

Including NAVS in your long-term estate planning will ensure that your commitment to compassion extends beyond your lifetime. It may also have tax benefits for you and your family.
