THIS PAGE IS DEDICATED TO THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE SHOWN THEIR SUPPORT DURING THE MOST DIFFICULT TIME IN A NONPROFIT’S LIFE, THE VERY BEGINNING. WITHOUT YOU, WE WOULDN’T EXIST.
Getting through our crucial first year was essential to the goal of elephants enjoying the healing life of sanctuary. This page contains the names of those who supported the creation of a dream – the dream of sanctuary – during our first six months. For us, you are the founding donors, the ones who helped shift things from a vision to a reality. We will forever be grateful.
We would also like to add a special thanks to those who helped us with the many behind-the-scenes steps that need to happen before we could take the big leap of welcoming elephants. They graciously donated their time, skills, and sometimes patience, because they truly believe in what we are trying to accomplish.
Special Thanks To
For putting together our crowdfunding video and ensuring it had the heart of sanctuary
For all the help with legalities, IRS applications, and preventing us from drowning in paperwork
Lyndell Fox, CPA
Who helped us keep our accounting in order and set us up on the right path

With Gratitude to
And to all of those that we knew would be there when we made our announcement: your support was not only needed, but it was the security blanket that allowed us to move forward with creating another sanctuary.
