Donating to CorgiAid
CorgiAid is a small volunteer-run operation. We depend on your donations to help us fund the rescuers that provide such terrific care to dogs in need. Other than some costs associated with doing business and fundraising, your money goes directly to the care of corgis and corgi mixes. CorgiAid is a government-blessed 501(c)3 charity with tax id number 94-3334612; your donations are tax deductible. Please help us!
Donations by Check
You can mail us a check at:
2108 N 38th Street
Seattle, WA 98103
Please be sure to include your name and address so we may acknowledge the receipt of your funds.
Donations by Credit Card
CorgiAid is pleased to be associated with Network for Good. This allows you to donate by credit card through their secure server, at a small additional charge to CorgiAid.
If you prefer, you may also donate through PayPal. The fees are a bit higher than those at Network For Good.
Donations of Non-Monetary Items
We cannot accept non-monetary items directly at CorgiAid as we don’t have storage and distribution facilities. However, if you’d like to donate a book, craft, or artwork, please donate it to the Crafts for Corgis Auction, whose proceeds benefit us. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to donate the items.
If you’d like to donate items to rescue such as food, blankets, equipment, coupons, etc., please contact your local dog rescue organization or shelter.
How to Designate Donations in Memory
We would love to honor a loved one of yours that has passed away. You may designate your donation be made in their memory, and we’ll place that recognition on our In Memoriam page.
To do this, we need a picture of the pet or person you wish to remember, and the statement that you would like to appear on the memorial page.
You can e-mail the information to email@example.com. Include your full name so we can match the e-mail to your donation, attach the picture or tell us the URL where we can find it, and tell us the words you want to say.
If you need to mail us a hard copy picture, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for the mailing address.
Specifying the Specific Use of a Donation
Sorry, but we cannot accept donations designated for a specific purpose; the IRS has some strict rules that say we must distribute funds according to standard guidelines. We can assure you that our money is distributed to needy and approved applicants. While we appreciate your recognition of the specific need of another, we cannot direct your money to any specific applicant. However, if you encourage them to apply for aid, we can help them through our general funds within the restrictions of our funding guidelines.
