Work Place Giving

Employer matching contribution programs

Many employers offer a matching gift program, allowing you to double your donation. If yours does, simply request the appropriate form, complete the employee section, and enclose it with your check or a copy of your online donation receipt to NEAVS.

Federal and state employees

Federal employees can donate to NEAVS through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), #11655*. NEAVS is the proud recipient of the “Best in America” Independent Charities Seal of Excellence, given only to CFC members who, “upon rigorous independent review, [have] been able to certify, document, and demonstrate on an annual basis that they meet the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness. … Of the 1,000,000 charities operating in the United States today, it is estimated that fewer than 50,000, or 5%, meet or exceed these standards, and, of those, fewer than 2,000 have been awarded this Seal.”

Massachusetts state employees can give through the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Employees Charitable Campaign (COMECC), Charity Code #700269*.

*NEAVS is listed under Release Chimpanzees—our national campaign focus.

Thank you for your workplace giving!

Vehicle Donation

If you have a car, truck, or RV that you no longer need or want, please consider turning it into a tax-deductible donation benefiting NEAVS' work to help end all animal research and get all animals out of all labs.

You can donate through the national V-DAC vehicle donation program online or by calling 877-999-8322. This is a free, quick and easy process that works with any vehicle running or not (towing is included), anywhere in the U.S. 

Here’s how it works:

  • After you have completed the initial process above to donate a car, V-DAC or their towing company will contact you. The towing company will schedule a convenient date to pick-up your donated car. All they will need from you is access to the vehicle, the title and any keys to the vehicle. Donating a car is as easy as that!
  • Donated vehicles are sold in the wholesale auto markets, the same auto auctions used by auto dealers for trade-ins, insurance companies and fleet owners.
  • Once your vehicle is sold, you will receive a Tax Deduction equal to the sales price of the vehicle, if you itemize your deductions.
  • If the vehicle sold for less than $500, you can deduct the “fair market value” up to $500.
  • V-DAC will send you a tax receipt or IRS Form 1098C stating what the vehicle sold for within 30 days of its sale.
  • NEAVS will also thank you in writing for partnering with us and forwarding our mission to help animals.

In-Kind Giving

In-kind gifts are one way you can support NEAVS' mission and help us with a gift/service rather than directly donating money. Examples include: office equipment, venue space for fundraisers/special events, and pro bono legal assistance...just to name a few!
