Matching Gifts

Did you know many companies (maybe the one you work for!) offer a matching gift program to encourage philanthropy among their employees. Some companies will even match to spouses and retirees.

By simply completing a matching gift form from your company, you may be able to double, or even triple, the impact of your gift to us! Contributions of any amount help us continue to provide a loving safe haven for the town’s homeless animals.

Planned Gifts

A planned gift is one of the most effective ways to ensure that the West Milford Animal Shelter Society can continue our mission for years to come!  Leaving a gift in your will/estate can also provide you with substantial tax breaks and financial advantages.
