Help us save and care for more animals and to grow!

Depending on your financial situation, and your short- and long-term wishes, there are many opportunities to have a positive impact on the lives of the current and future residents of the Long Island Farm Sanctuary (LIFS).  As a federally-recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit, the LIFS offers you certain tax advantages (based on your adjusted gross income), if you itemize your deductions, while your contribution aids in the maintenance, feeding, veterinary care, and shelter of our rescued residents.

Please feel free to call 631.460.3033 to discuss your donation wishes.  We recommend reviewing your plans for substantial donations with your family, as well as your attorney and/or financial advisor and/or tax professional.
