Ways to Give

Make a Donation

The Wisconsin Humane Society receives no general government funding and is not affiliated with any national animal welfare organizations, such as PETA, HSUS, or ASPCA. We rely entirely on the support of generous people like you! Access our secure donation site here.

Monthly Giving

Monthly donors – or what we call “constant companions” – are so incredibly important to the work we do at the Wisconsin Humane Society. These amazing folks designate an amount that is automatically donated to the shelter each month. It’s very easy to set up, just fill out a form and you’re done! Learn more about our Monthly Giving program here.

Memorials & Honorary Gifts

Honor a friend or celebrate the memory of a loved one by making a contribution in their name to the Wisconsin Humane Society. Learn more about memorial and honorary gifts here.

Planned Giving

Estate gifts, commonly called "planned gifts" include bequests, securities, charitable trusts, life insurance, retirement accounts, and more. With thoughtful planning, you can create win-win solutions for you and the animals at the Wisconsin Humane Society. Learn more about planned giving here.

Corporate Engagement 

We are so inspired by the support we receive from businesses in the community. Submit a request form here so we may advise on a potential partnership. We are grateful for your interest!

Attend an Event

Whether you're attending one of the Wisconsin Humane Society's own events or participating in a fundraiser for WHS out in the community, you can make a difference for animals in need! Check out the upcoming events benefiting WHS here.

Start a Fundraiser

From a bake sale to online fundraising or a supply collection drive, there are lots of ways you generate much-needed donations for WHS! Get ideas for your next fundraiser here.

Utilize a Donor-Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes. If you have a DAF, you can make a gift directly through DAF Direct to support WHS. DAF Direct currently facilitates gifts from donors of Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, and the BNY Mellon Charitable Fund. More national and community foundations may be added in the future. 

How You Can Help

If you are planning a fundraiser, make sure to have your event listed on our Community Events page. Also, check out our fundraising toolkit for some great ideas and guidelines for third-party fundraisers. If you have questions or would like information about making a donation, please email the WHS Development Department or call (414) 431-6270.
