Give the Gift of Sanctuary

your investment counts
in providing Home & Herd for elephants

Help to provide Sanctuary to retired elephants in Hohenwald, Tennessee, and to educate the public on the crisis facing elephants in captivity and in the wild.

Donations of every amount contribute to the care of these magnificent creatures, and ensures their opportunity for renewal in a refuge dedicated to their well-being. Givers at any level will receive monthly EleNews email updates.

With a one-time donation of $50+, you receive:

  • eligibility to apply for a Volunteer Day at The Elephant Sanctuary

Become a Sustaining Donor by setting up an automatic monthly charge of $10+ to your credit or debit card, and you receive additional updates and benefits from The Sanctuary.

All donors who make online gifts receive digital receipts, unless a paper receipt is requested. For a paper receipt, or to set up a Sustaining Donor monthly payment through your checking account, dial Kathy at 931-796-6500 ext. 107.

You can learn more about additional giving programs and their benefits at Become a Member, Adopt an Elephant, or Feed an Elephant.

Gifting a Donation:

For a unique gift to celebrate special days, or to express sympathy and cherished memories, consider making a one-time donation to The Elephant Sanctuary “In Honor” or “In Memory” of a loved person or pet.

When you make a gift on behalf of another, you are responsible for notifying your intended gift recipient (your "Honoree") of this donation. The Sanctuary will not contact your honoree about your gift, but they may opt themselves into future communications from The Sanctuary.

This change has been made recently to ensure that The Elephant Sanctuary is not storing or collecting information about any individual without their express consent, in accordance with our Privacy Policy.
