Estate Contributions

Two Great Ways You Can Help The U.S. Wolf Refuge

Receive a Charitable Tax Deduction and Monthly Annuity Payments For Life

If you are age 60 or older, you can establish a U.S. Wolf Refuge gift annuity that will help save the lives of many of these magnificent animals while you receive an immediate charitable tax deduction and guaranteed monthly annuity payments for the rest of your life.


If you are 70½ or older, you are now able to make transfers of up to $100,000 from your retirement account to the U.S. Wolf Refuge tax-free. This enables you to donate as much as $100,000 without incurring any income taxes. There are a number of other financial tools that you can use to support the U.S. Wolf Refuge.

You should always consult your qualified estate or tax professional to determine the implications of your charitable gift

Asset Donations

  • Real Estate
  • Stocks & Bonds
  • Classic Cars
  • Fine Art
  • Antiques (furniture, silverware, dishes, etc.)
  • Coin Collections
  • Collectibles (sports items, dolls, etc.)
  • Rare Books, Magazines, Photos, etc.

In today's economy, many of these items are now worth significantly less than when they were purchased. Donating them to the U.S. Wolf Refuge allows you the tax deduction of their present market value plus the loss of their purchase value.

Vehicle Donation Program

Donate your vehicle to the U.S. Wolf Refuge

Cars, Trucks, Motorhomes, Boats, ATV's, Motorcycles, Heavy Equipment, Quads, Snowmobiles, Watercrafts.

Many of you have a vehicle that spends more time in the shop than it does on the road, or you have a vehicle that you just don't drive anymore and it just sits in your driveway. A practical way to rid yourself of these is to donate them to the U.S. Wolf Refuge. With a major concern over carbon emissions, and with high-gas-mileage vehicles being worth less than what most people owe on them, think about donating it to the U.S. Wolf Refuge. It is tax-deductible, and it is a secure way to get out from under a "financial elephant."

We can take care of the whole process from coming to pick up the vehicle to doing all the paperwork. This is a wonderful way to help us provide care and sanctuary to the many animals that now reside here and to help fund our many projects and activities

To donate your vehicle please call the United States Wolf Refuge (775) 475-0510

There are so many things that the U.S. Wolf Refuge needs to have done. There is something for just about everyone to do. There are things that you can do at home, on your computer, at your school, and where you work. The things that need to be done range from heavy physical work to redoing the interior of the guest worker living quarters. For those who are highly experienced and knowledgeable of wildlife and complete our volunteer docent program, the animals will highly appreciate the social and developmental time that you give them.

For those who wish to work out here at the Refuge, be aware that it is located 40 miles from Reno. It is a long but beautiful drive. 13 of those miles are on dirt roads that in the winter require 4WD.
