The Big Payback Starts Today!

The Big Payback starts TODAY at 6pm CST! Set your clocks to count down until the kick-off time, because this 24-hour fundraiser is our biggest of the year. Last year, our fantastic supporters helped us win bonus prizes with their enthusiasm, early support, and ongoing donations. This year, we are raising funds for much-needed supplies that will allow us to continue expanding our fencing to create  space that will allow for the rescue of additional elephants. 

There are numerous prizes to be won along the way, including the:

  • People Get Ready Prize for the first organization to 50 unique gifts, for $1,500
  • Grand Prize for Most Dollars Raised (Medium Organization) $5,000

Thanks to two generous donors, each dollar you give will be matched, DOUBLING donations up to $30,000

Give – and spread the word! Follow the leaderboard to watch Global Sanctuary for Elephants’ progress throughout the day. 

As always, thank you for making sure that captive elephants around the world have a chance for a new beginning at sanctuary. 

(Donations made before the 6pm start time will not count towards prizes.)

    Hi. I always donate but by Paypal. Is there no way that a donation on this day can be paid that way?

      We don’t run the fundraiser, but apparently the Big Payback organizers do not accept Paypal.
