Thank You! You Did It!

Thanks to your amazing generosity, we were able to meet—and surpass—our BUILD IT! match challenge to raise $25,000!

We are incredibly grateful for all the individual gifts received, along with the whopping $25,000 matching grant from our anonymous partner. All combined, the donations total over $50,000!

These funds will benefit Chimp Haven and will be used to help fulfill an urgent need to build additional habitats to accommodate more chimpanzees who have been retired from research.

While hundreds of retired chimps have already been moved to sanctuaries, the process is slow and hundreds more continue to wait in labs; so your donation is especially timely. Next week, we’ll be sending Chimp Haven a hefty check to help all those chimps!

Thanks to so many caring people like you, chimps formerly in labs will enjoy a new home and better future.

Also, thanks to everyone who stepped up on Giving Tuesday to support AAVS with a special gift—we were again overwhelmed by your generosity!

You make our work possible; you make a difference! Thank you!
