Vote to Help us Receive Grant Funds
Help us receive grant funds by voting for us on MyGivingCircle. The organizations with the most votes, receive a share of the grant funds. It is completely free to vote and you can vote once a week, every week. You can also donate through MyGivingCircle and each dollar equals one vote: $1 = 1 vote, $25 = 25 votes, etc.
You can even take it one step further and contribute a little money to have us featured in MyGivingCircle’s website and communications. This will make us visible to other donors who support similar organizations. The money you contribute will go into the grant money pool and you will be helping us gain new like-minded supporters!

State Tax Return
W.O.L.F. is now part of the ReFUND CO program. You can choose to donate all or part of your state tax refund to us when you do your taxes.
If you are going to receive a Colorado refund, you will use the “Voluntary Contributions” schedule to choose a nonprofit to receive all or part of your refund. You will then look for the option of “Donate to a Colorado Nonprofit Fund” and insert our name, our CCSA Registration number, and the amount of your donation. Our information is below or you can search for us on the ReFUND CO website.
Different tax filing systems may look different and you will need to look for a place to “Donate to a Colorado Fund.” If you are using a tax preparer like H&R Block or a CPA, you will need to inform them of our name, CCSA Registration number and donation amount.
Name: WOLF or The WOLF Sanctuary
CCSA Number: 20033001711
Qualified Charitable Distribution
If you have a traditional IRA and are 70 1/2 or older, you now must take the required minimum distribution (RMD), even if you don’t need or want the funds at that time. A qualified charitable distribution (QCD) allows you to distribute the minimum required amount while avoiding the excise tax penalty and income tax on the distribution.
It works by bypassing the owner and going directly to the charity of your choice. By doing this, you can also keep your adjusted gross income and taxable income within a desired range and prevent your income from reaching the thresholds for the net investment income tax.
And if you have already been donating to W.O.L.F., you can now do so without having those funds taxed first. Talk to your financial advisor and see if this option is beneficial to you.
Include Us in Your Will
One contribution option that not many people think about is the inclusion of a charity in your will. If you do not have the ability to donate to W.O.L.F. now or have been donating to us and want to continue to do so, you can choose to include us as a benefactor in your will.
This is a wonderful opportunity to create a lasting legacy and to continue to help the rescues.
Giving Back While You Shop
Did you know that many stores and online shopping sites often give back a portion of their profits to organizations in the community? It’s true. Many businesses have shopper giving programs that donate thousands of dollars a year to charities all across the country. You just need to know where to look.
Stores like King Sooper’s have shoppers cards that give a portion of your payment to organizations. Online sites such as Amazon.com and Ebay.com also have programs like this. It may not look like much at first, but it really adds up overtime. It is a wonderful way to be able to give back to your community without spending any extra cash from your pocket!
Find out more details about how to get signed up for these shopper giving programs below.
Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to W.O.L.F. Same products, same prices, same service. Sign up through Smile.Amazon.com and choose WOLF as your charity. Start your future purchases at Smile.Amazon.com for your purchase to count! .

King Soopers Community Rewards
You can make a difference even while you shop for groceries at King Soopers! Create a digital account that is attached to your King Soopers card or Alt ID, go to the Community Rewards tab and search “W.O.L.F. Sanctuary” or use our organization number “UU724,” then enroll! It is that easy! Every time you use your King Soopers card or Alt ID, you will be helping us!
Each quarter, King Soopers gives $2.5 million to the organizations who are a part of the Community Rewards Program. W.O.L.F. receives the percent of that payout that is equivalent to the percent that shoppers who have chosen us spend at King Soopers compared to the amount spent by everyone else who has enrolled in the program. For example, if shoppers who have chosen W.O.L.F. spend 1% of the total amount spent by those enrolled in the program, we will receive 1% of the $2.5 million payout. The more supporters we have shopping for us, the more we receive from the payout! This does not take the place of the Fuel Points Program so you can get your fuel points and help us at the same time!
Want to make a difference every time you shop for the things you need or want? Join iGive, select W.O.L.F. as your charity and a percentage of what you spend is donated to the Sanctuary (on average 3%). The stores pay for it all. You never pay more, and sometimes even pay less with coupons and deals! With over 1,700+ stores participating there is sure to be something for everyone.
Why do the stores pay? Participating retailers believe you’ll be a great customer and you’ll tell your friends. They like being good corporate citizens, helping to support YOUR favorite cause or charity. They even pay iGive, so when you see the amount or percentage being donated before you make a purchase, 100% of that is actually donated, period.
Support W.O.L.F. on eBay! Sell and donate 10-100% of your eBay sale to W.O.L.F. eBay will give you a credit on basic selling fees, and you’ll get a tax deduction too.

You don’t have to buy or sell to make an immediate gift to your favorite nonprofit.
