Donor Frequently Asked Questions

How are you funded?
RedRover is 100-percent supported by donations from our members. We receive no government funds.

Are my gifts tax-exempt?
Yes, to the extent allowed by law. RedRover was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization in 1987.

How much of my gift goes to help animals?
In 2011, RedRover spent 79 cents of every dollar raised on programs directly benefiting animals. View the 2011 Income and Expenses Breakdown

What is your tax ID number?

Do you accept contributions through my employer?
Yes. If your employer has a matching gift program, you can double or even triple your gift to RedRover. Just obtain a matching gift form from your employer and mail it in with your gift – we’ll do the rest!

We accept contributions through the Combined Federal Campaign, and you may also write in RedRover in your employer’s United Way campaign.

Can I leave a bequest to RedRover in my will?
There is no more valuable way to leave a legacy of your compassion for animals than to make a provision for RedRover in your will or to set up another form of planned gift. Learn more about making these types of gifts here. We also recommend that you consult your lawyer, financial planner and/or tax advisor about making a planned gift to RedRover.
