Save Lives with Us!
Berkeley Humane is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization (Tax ID #94-1347069) that relies on the public’s generosity to fund our life-saving efforts. With a few clicks, you can donate to improve the lives of shelter animals who need it most.
Your stock can have a huge impact on dogs and cats—because you can deduct the whole value of the stock without having to pay capital gains taxes!
Donating Crypto is one of the most tax-efficient ways to support shelter dogs and cats. You avoid paying capital gains taxes, so your donation goes even farther!
Once you turn 72, you must take a required minimum distribution from your IRA. A gift to Berkeley Humane is a great way to meet this requirement while saving lives! For more information, please contact your IRA administrator.
Your Donor-Advised Fund is an ideal vehicle to maximize your tax savings and easily donate to Berkeley Humane! Visit our site below or check with your DAF administrator for more information.
By donating property, you can reduce or avoid capital gains tax, take a substantial income tax deduction, or receive income for life. Best of all, your generosity benefits shelter animals for many years to come.

Hope Medical Fund
The Hope Medical Fund supports our onsite veterinary hospital so we can help sick or injured animals. The sad truth is, animals with medical needs are often passed over due to the high cost commitment. Treating them gives them the second chance they deserve.
This year, we will need $400,000 to medically prepare 1,000 animals for adoption.
