Ways to help support the ranch...



1.) Become a recurring small donor by signing up on Paypal. Donations are tax-deductible and can be as little as one or two dollars a month! We prefer this method of helping because it gives us stability and confidence to grow our programs. For recurring payments, PayPal collects $0.30 plus 2.9% of your donation as a fee.


2.) Send us a one-time charity donation via PayPal Giving Fund or by check (Corporate Office: 316 Santa Fe Trl, Mooresville, Indiana, 46158) - we will receive 100% of your donation with this method (no fees)!


3.) Designate us as your charity on Amazon Smile! When you shop through Amazon Smile, they will send us a small portion of their proceeds (here’s a tool that helps make sure you don’t forget to visit Amazon Smile instead of just Amazon.


4.) Raise money for us with a Facebook fundraiser on your birthday (or any day)!


5.) Donate through Planned Giving. These donations are typically made from assets in your estate upon your passing. (Naming Chelonian Ranch, Inc. as a beneficiary in your will or trust, land, homestead, retirement funds, etc.)


6.) Donate your car, truck, motorcycle or RV to charity; this service will pick it up and send us a check! (Vehicle doesn't have to run.)


7.) Donate your stock to the Chelonian Ranch and avoid capital gains tax! You also get to deduct the fair market value of your stock (regardless of your cost basis).


8.) Donate to our GoFundMe campaign.


9.) Subscribe to our Youtube channel and "Like" our videos.


10.) Tell a friend about us and why you value our work.


100% of your donations go towards the care of our Residents. The cost of veterinary care, food and building secure enclosures gets to be expensive.

We are extremely grateful for any amount that you are able to give. All donations are tax deductible since we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
