Giving a Gift in Someone’s Honor or Memory

You can make a contribution to The Anti-Cruelty Society in honor or memory of a beloved pet or person. When such a gift is made, The Anti-Cruelty Society sends a card to the individual being honored, or to the person who should be notified of this generous gift.

To make a gift in the name of a pet or person, you can donate online, or call the Development Office at (312) 644-8338 ext. 8200 for assistance with making a gift.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor corporate matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions that their employees make. With a matching gift from your employer, you may be able to double or even triple the size of your original gift. Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. If your company has a matching gift program, contact your company’s human resources department to learn about your options. Companies have various methods by which you can submit your matching gift request; online forms, automated phone systems, or a paper form that you submit to The Anti-Cruelty Society. If your company uses a paper matching gift form, please complete and sign the form and send it to The Anti-Cruelty Society along with your contribution, and we will take care of the rest. If you have given a gift recently or in this calendar year, and did not submit your paperwork you may still be able to ask your company to match it!

If you are unsure if your company has a matching gift program you can enter your employer’s name below. You may be able to access your employer’s matching gift forms through the search button below and follow the directions to secure a matching gift for The Anti-Cruelty Society!
