Overview

The Florida Wildlife Hospital is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that depends primarily upon private donations for its programs and services.

Contributions to the Florida Wildlife Hospital are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

FWH is a responsible non-profit – we work hard to be efficient with our dollars, keeping our administrative costs to a minimum, in order to do the best job possible as a wildlife hospital and education center.

Your donation to the Florida Wildlife Hospital will help provide:

  • Life-saving medical care to sick, injured, and orphaned wild animals;
  • Care, feeding, and rehabilitation for wildlife patients during their recovery, and ongoing care to the 10 animals — part of the education and outreach ambassador team — that now call the Wildlife Hospital home.

Remember FWH with a Legacy Gift

The Florida Wildlife Hospital is grateful for those caring individuals who have included the Hospital in their estate plans. Their generosity has helped us meet current challenges and will be a source of financial support for years to come.

The Florida Wildlife Hospital has a record of responsible stewardship, with a demonstrated commitment to programmatic and financial integrity.

When you include the Florida Wildlife Hospital in your estate planning, you can be confident that whatever you give will be carefully used to advance your goals.
