Giving Tuesday is November 28th; here’s why we think you should donate to Toucan Rescue Ranch!
Giving Tuesday is a global movement focused on charitable giving, and what better way to celebrate than by donating to Toucan Rescue Ranch!? As a small, donor-funded nonprofit, our growth relies entirely on the generosity of animal lovers like you!
Every year, we treat hundreds of injured wildlife, working around the clock to ensure these animals have the best possible second chance at a wild future. We focus on conservation, education, and research to ensure a brighter tomorrow for Costa Rica’s native wildlife.
This Giving Tuesday, help support our mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and rewild Costa Rica’s wildlife by contributing to our #PapayaIsLife Fund. With your donations of $25, $50, $75, or $100, you can help us keep our rescue center running!
What is the #PapayaIsLife Fund?
Our animal kitchen goes through roughly 1 ton of papaya in just ONE week. And that’s just papaya! To provide for the specialized diets of the over 500 animals in our care, we must supplement a variety of other fruits and vegetables, such as bananas, apples, green beans, and carrots, as well as fish, meat, seeds, leaves, and other food items. This is a HUGE but necessary expense that you help us cover with your donations!
Our #PapayaIsLife Fund not only keeps our animals fed, but it also helps us finance the day-to-day function of our rescue.
The money raised from Giving Tuesday helps us with general property maintenance, enclosure upkeep, medical expenses and new equipment, habitat upgrades, animal enrichment, and so much more!
After the COVID-19 pandemic, we felt the pressure of limited resources and reduced funding, so much so that we were unsure if we could bounce back. Having come out on the other side of that dark period and still being able to experience such growth is a triumphant feeling that all of us at TRR share. In the past year alone, we have strengthened, expanded, and improved so many aspects of our mission. From making upgrades to our facilities to growing our rescue program, we are thrilled at the enormous progress of our little rescue.
And it’s all thanks to our generous supporters!
Animal lovers like you help us keep our clinic doors open and our animals fed. Thank you for continuing to grow with us through every obstacle and every joy. We truly appreciate the loyalty of our dedicated supporters.
As we continue to expand, the need for additional funding also grows. You can lend a hand by helping us reach our $5,000 goal this Giving Tuesday. And we have outstanding news! Thanks to a grant match from Explore.org and the Annenberg Foundation, your dollar has double the impact! When you donate $25, we receive $50, $50 turns into $100, and so on. There has never been a better time to lend us a hand
All donations are tax-deductible, as we are a nonprofit in the U.S. and a Costa Rican Foundation. Learn more by visiting our official MightyCause Campaign page! And as always, thank you for your support!
