Ways to give ::
There are different ways to give to DogsBite.org. You can become a monthly sustaining supporter, make a single gift, mail in a donation and even raise money on behalf us in a Facebook post.
Single PayPal gift
Make a single gift to our nonprofit on our Paypal donation page. Your gift allows us to continue our core activities of conducting high quality research about U.S. fatal dog maulings, to track and analyze Level 1 trauma center dog bite studies, ensuring this information reaches the public, and educating parents, law enforcement, journalists, attorneys and policymakers on the results of our research. Our work changes hearts, changes minds and prevents new life-altering dog maulings.
Monthly PayPal gift
Become a sustaining supporter of DogsBite by contributing to one of our monthly giving levels, starting at our Good Samaritan level of $10 per month. You can also choose any amount you would like to donate on a monthly basis from our Paypal donation page. Sustaining supporters are the lifeblood of our nonprofit, allowing our mission and life-saving research to remain constant without interruptions. Sign up today and join the other sustaining supporters of DogsBite.org!
Donate via DonorBox
Make a single or recurring gift powered by Donorbox right here on our website. Donorbox integrates with Stripe, which is an alternative to PayPal. Giving through Donorbox also allows you to become a sustaining supporter by making your gift amount monthly or annually. Recurring donors can also easily pause, resume and cancel donations, change a donation and even change the charge date of a recurring donation. Make a gift to DogsBite.org through Donorbox today!
Donate via Facebook
Just like PayPal, Facebook allows the public to donate to tax-exempt charities like ours through their own platform. You can find our Facebook donate button at the top of the DogsBite.org Facebook page. Facebook does not take any of "their own" fees, but transaction fees still apply (the same as PayPal). We are not alerted to these donations until about 45 days afterward. So sadly, we can’t send you a thank you note right away. We hope Facebook changes this policy!
Raise money on Facebook
Any person who has a Facebook account can raise funds for our nonprofit. Simply go here and start raising funds. You can also add the Raise Money button to a new post on your Timeline. This option is a few choices below the add Photo/Video button. Scroll down to Raise Money and select it (red heart icon). When the search box appears, type in DogsBite.org. Then at the bottom of your post, it will say, "[Your name] is raising money for DogsBite.org," along with a donate button.
PayPal Giving Fund - "No fees"
If you would like to donate anonymously or with no processing fees -- 100% of your gift goes to our nonprofit -- you can give to our PayPal Giving Fund page. We are not alerted to these donations until about 30 days later. The PayPal Giving Fund is a 501(c)(3) charity whose mission is to disperse donations to tax-exempt charities like ours and guarantees no processing or transation fees. After you donate, you’ll get your PayPal Giving Fund tax receipt by email.
Mail us a gift
The other way to ensure that no third party processing fees will be applied to your donation is to donate the old fashioned way. Just mail a check or money order to our address in Austin:
