Make a Donation

Orangutans are critically endangered in the wild because of rapid deforestation and the expansion of palm oil plantations into their forest home. They need our protection.

It costs around US $3,000 a year to rescue, rehabilitate and release each orangutan. YOU can make a difference!

Your donation will ensure that we can continue this important work. With your help, we can give orangutans a future.

Orangutan Outreach is a registered 501(c)(3) US charity. EIN: 26-0521285
Your donations are fully tax-deductible.

If your company gives matching donations, please contact us to learn how to match your contribution!

On behalf of the orangutans, thank you for your support! {:(|}

You can make a gift of cash or securities in your Will or Living Trust, and this type of charitable bequest is fully deductible for estate tax purposes. You may make a gift of a fixed dollar amount or percentage of your estate or designate us as a residuary beneficiary of your estate. Learn more about leaving a legacy for the orangutans here.


Funds collected for orangutans will be used for medicine, food, equipment, rescue operations, releases, cages and hundreds of other items that are necessary to rehabilitate the orangutans and keep the projects going. A minimal amount will be used for administrative costs in the US to continue to build up the organization so that we can rescue and rehabilitate even more orangutans.
