Ways to Help

PrintSaint Francis Wolf Sanctuary is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charity (EIN #54-2077914), and we rely on the generosity of our supporters in order to keep the sanctuary functioning and all of our animals happy and healthy. If you believe in the work SFWS is doing and would like to help our animals, please consider supporting us! You can see our GuideStar profile here and annual reports here.


Monetary donations are crucial: SFWS is funded almost entirely by individual private donations!

  • Or you can mail your donation to us, following the directions on this form [pdf]
  • And don’t forget to check if your company will match your donation! (See below)

Employer Matching

Many companies will match employee donations. By simply completing a matching gift form (either online or via a paper form), you may be able to double, or even triple, the impact of your gift! Use the search field on our matching gift page to see if your employer offers a matching gift program.

Relocation Fund

In the next few years, SFWS will need to relocate to new property in the area. This will enable us to significantly improve our enclosures and facilities, but it will also present many challenges, especially in terms of cost. Please consider donating to our Relocation Fund.


If you have a favorite SFWS resident, sponsorships are a great way to show him or her your love and support! Sponsorships make ideal gifts as well.

In-Kind Donations

In addition to monetary donations, in-kind donations are extremely helpful.

  • Check out our Amazon Wish List to see the items which we currently need. Remember to use Amazon Smile (see below) when purchasing wish list items!
  • If you are interested in donating professional expertise or labor, please send us an email.


Most of the work at SFWS is carried out by our team of wonderful, dedicated volunteers.
