It’s our Anniversary!
To celebrate we are inviting you to become a Pathfinder and make a lasting impact.

We’re building a devoted human herd to help us, month after month, offer captive elephants hope and healing at sanctuary.

By becoming a monthly donor, you are joining a group of our most treasured friends and family, who provide an ongoing, dependable source of income to save elephants. Your monthly gift is easy to budget and will be automatically charged to your designated account every month until you cancel at any time.

Your gift will help support Maia, Rana, Lady, Mara, Bambi, Pocha, Guillermina, and the other elephants yet to come. Your generosity will provide their care.

Together we can unlock the hope of captive elephants in South America.  And it starts with you.

** Pathfinders will receive an emailed dose of good news every month – talking about your impact on the sanctuary.  We hope it keeps you smiling all month long.

Q: Once I’ve made an online gift, how can I make changes to my account (i.e. change amount, change my credit card number)? A:it’s so easy!  In the top right corner of the donation page is the option to ‘Create an Account’. If you do so, you can adjust any of the details at any time, including stopping payment.

If we receive your change prior to the month’s processing deadline we can make the change effective for that month. If not, it’ll take effect the next month.
Q: What if I need to stop giving. Can I stop whenever I want? A: Of course! Just email us at or call (615) 435-9523 or create an account on our donation page. Your cancellation will take place the same month, or the following month, depending upon when we hear from you.
Q: Is my donation tax deductible?A: A: Global Sanctuary for Elephants is a US based, registered 501(c)3 charity and your donation is tax deductible. Please keep a copy of your receipt for your tax records. Donation summaries will be sent out annually to all recurring donors for tax purposes..
