There’s No Tax On Kindness

Help Animals Without Taxing Your Budget

No one likes tax season. To make it a little easier, here are ways you can support AAVS and help the animals without writing a check:


Inspire others to support AAVS by telling the world how you feel about our work for the animals! Visit AAVS’s page on GreatNonprofits, click the ‘Write A Review’ button, and then share your positive experience as an AAVS member. Also, post your review to Facebook and send a tweet or e-mail to friends and followers.


Amazon Smile enables you to donate 0.5% of your purchases to benefit AAVS. Just log into using your existing Amazon account, select AAVS as your charity, and start shopping and giving.


If you sell items on eBay, you can designate a percentage of your final sale price — between 10% and 100% — to benefit AAVS. And as a shopper on eBay, you can search out items that will generate donations for us. Search for AAVS at to view items currently for sale and learn more about the program.


Through AAVS’s partnership with V-DAC, you can donate any type of vehicle — car, truck, motorcycle, RV, boat, airplane, heavy equipment — from anywhere in the US, whether running or not. That clunker in the driveway can help the animals and also provide a tax benefit for you!


Give the animals a very special gift by providing for AAVS through a bequest, trust, annuity, or insurance policy. Planned giving is a powerful way to ensure your longtime legacy of protecting animals; and your commitment will also serve as an inspiration to others. Such arrangements can provide tax benefits, as well as ensure the continuation of AAVS’s important mission.

But if you receive a tax refund and want to share the wealth, we’ll happily accept a check or credit card gift, too. However, it’s always nice to have other options when your budget is tight.

Thank you!

PS. Please share this e-mail with friend and family—the more supporters we have, the more we can do for the animals!
