As a monthly donor you’ll be sent a link to our private Facebook membership page which has expanded coverage of animals in our rehab, more videos and more extensive follow ups.
For a monthly donation of $50 or more, you’ll become a VIP member and receive an invitation for 2 to the Annual Fall Tour of our facilities where you’ll get to see, first hand, what it takes to get these wild animals back to the wild.
Family member, friend, acquaintance having a Birthday, Anniversary or celebrating a recent accomplishment? How about a special occasion such as Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, or just to say "Hello". Consider a gift in their name.
Many of our caring donors have chosen to celebrate occasions such as birthdays, by running a fundraiser for Shades of Hope on Facebook. Social media is a great way to get people together to support a cause. This type of fundraising has been very successful and has helped save lives and ease the suffering for so many wild lives in our care.

Donating securities directly to Shades of Hope rather than cashing them and donating the proceeds, ensures that the full market value of the asset can be used to support the needs of wildlife in care.
By donating the securities directly, you will be exempt from the capital gains tax that would normally be assessed and your charitable tax credit will be equal to the full market value of that security.
This type of donation can be expertly handled by Canada Helps on behalf of Shades of Hope. Please click on the link below for more information on this process.
Your passion for the preservation of wildlife can live on in your name and continue to have a positive impact on their wellbeing.
