Ways to Help
CaringCent uses the rounding method to create the “virtual change” that you will donate—for example, you pay $41.75 for a restaurant dinner, the bill gets rounded up to $42.00, and you donate the difference of 25 cents. Peekaboo says that if just 1,000 people join us on Caringcent, and each person donates just $2.00 in change each month, that would be enough to cover Bat World’s entire monthly food bill for Peekaboo and all of her rescued friends! Please help us reach this goal by signing up with Caringcent today!
We are very excited to announce our partnership with a wonderful
company, Brews & Rescues Coffee Co. The bats will receive 10% of
any sales done via our referral link (below), plus our supporters
can get 10% off their purchase by using the code “brewsforbats”!
If you shop at Amazon.com, please create an Amazon Smile account and choose Bat World Sanctuary as your designated charity. Every time to sign into Amazon Smile and shop, Amazon Smile will send us a donation!
Please see our AMAZON WISH LIST for supplies that use on a regular basis, including vitamin supplements, feeding supplies, fruit bat toys, apples, canned fruit nitrite gloves, paper towels and a lot of other stuff!

LASTING WAYS TO HELP:
The ability to make a donation from IRA accounts is now part of the U.S. tax code. Your gift amount will count toward your Required Minimum Distribution, and your taxable income is lowered by the amount of your qualified charitable distribution. Note that gifts must be completed before December 31 to be eligible in the current tax year. In order to make a gift, you must be at least age 70.5 years old and the check should come directly from your IRA account. Your gift may come from a Traditional or a Roth IRA, although special exclusions may apply to other types of IRA accounts. There is no tax deduction, however, there is NO income tax on the amount withdrawn. Checks may be sent to:
Bat World Sanctuary
299 High Point Rd
Weatherford, TX 76088
Talk to your financial advisor about supporting Bat World Sanctuary by making a gift of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds. In addition to making a difference for bats, a gift of appreciated securities offers you significant benefits. These include an immediate charitable deduction for the full market value of the stock and avoidance of capital gains taxes that would normally be due upon sale.
LEAVING A LEGACY
Leaving a gift to Bat World Sanctuary in your will or trust will make a lasting and compassionate difference to our worldwide rescue work for bats. You can remove Bat World Sanctuary as a beneficiary if your desires change.
