Our work to protect animals would not be possible without the generous donations we receive each year. The Animal Welfare Institute is committed to using our donors’ contributions for the direct benefit of animals. Because of our fiscal responsibility and transparency, AWI has been awarded an A+ rating by CharityWatch and a 4-star rating by Charity Navigator. All donations to AWI, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, are tax deductible (13-5655952). Donations of $35 and above qualify for membership in AWI (or $10 for a student or senior citizen membership). For donations using an international credit card or address, PayPal is recommended.
