Support MFOA / Donation

Be a ‘MFOA Protector’                  


In celebration of our 25 years of being Maine’s voice for animals, Maine Friends of Animals has created the ‘MFOA Protectors’. This new program is designed for committed supporters to provide focus to specific goals. Become a part of a team of fellow ‘protectors’ in increasing our capacities to combat animal abuse, neglect, cruelty and suffering in Maine. Join our new community of supporters and help bring MFOA to the next level. 

  • It is an easy, efficient and tax-deductible way to make a difference all year long. 
  • A monthly donation will eliminate ‘renewal’ notices, as well as save on mailings and costly fundraising expenses. With a predictable income pledge, we can plan and budget specifically and see your donation going toward a goal.
  • Gift can be easily done through a credit card or your bank account. At any time you can change the method of payment or the amount, or cancel. Just give us a 30 day notice to make any changes for you. Any questions just call 207-781-2187 or email at
  • All monthly donors receive an annual statement reflecting the year’s total donation. 
  • A $10 monthly donation means that for as little as 30 cents a day you can be part of a new team to help address animal cruelty in Maine — for less than the cost of a small coffee each day, you can be a ‘MFOA Protector’. 
  • If you become a member of our top-level team in combatting inhumane actions and policies, you will receive an MFOA bumper sticker and ‘MFOA Protector’ 16 oz. mug. 











Here are a few examples of what a ‘MFOA Protector’ can accomplish: 

$10  - Can pay for gas for a Maine Law School student making a court appearance in MFOA’s Courtroom Animal Advocate Program

$15  - Can pay for MFOA tabling / education event fees

$20  - Can cover the costs in saving a Maine ‘dog-chained-for-life’

$25  - Can cover the costs of mailings to the state legislators on a cruelty bill

$50  - Can save animals in stress supporting the MFOA Animal Welfare Support Line 

$100 - Can increase the budget for more MFOA Pet Clubs in schools and community centers

$250 - Can provide a college scholarship for a Maine high school senior to study animal protection 

$500 - Can pay for TV ads supporting an animal protection issue and/or legislation 

Real goals we can achieve with predictable revenue. Be sure to check the box making your gift recurring. 

Every gift saves lives. If you would rather a one time gift, you can leave a specific a month in the ‘other’ box, and do not check the recurring donation box.

Donations can also be sent by mail to:

Maine Friends of Animals is a 501 c3 non-profit and all donations are tax deductible.   











Despite all that we have accomplished in our first 25 years, there is still far too much abuse, cruelty, neglect and inhumane behavior, and that is why we tirelessly work to be Maine’s voice for animals. Be a part of Maine’s largest and leading animal protection organization and join us in fighting against injustices and suffering many Maine animals still endure. Be a ‘MFOA Protector’ today and make a difference year round.    



Planned Giving to support MFOA

Creating a Legacy of Humane Compassion

A bequest is one of the simplest ways to provide for those you care about. Once you have provided for the people you love, you may wish to consider a bequest to the Maine Friends of Animals. 

Charitable bequests find a place in the wills of many who wish to lend support well into the future. A gift through your will to the Maine Friends of Animals  will be a thoughtful way to help us continue our mission to help the animals in Maine. 

Creating a will or trust is something many people put off until later in life, but in truth, directing your assets - whether modest or significant — is an expression of love for the people and causes you care most about and it is not complicated nor costly.

After providing for your loved ones, you can easily offer continued support for the cause you believe in, like MFOA. There are multiple ways you can bequeath your varied assets from real estate to the residue of your estate.

Estate Planning

You can support Maine Friends of Animal’s work in a variety of ways, including through your estate. Planned gifts are a tremendous recognition of your commitment to full protection for all animals.

Bequests in your will

Bequests in your will are very easy to arrange. If you already have a will, you can ask your attorney to add a bequest codicil (a brief legal supplement that adds to or modifies your current will). This process is simple and less expensive than drafting a new will. If you are drafting your first will, ask your attorney to include your bequest to Maine Friends of Animals in the will’s body. With a bequest, you may donate a specific sum of money, a percentage of your estate or an asset (such as real estate or stock) to Maine Friends of Animals. You may also allocate a percentage of “the rest, residue and remainder” of your estate to MFOA, after first providing for your family members and friends.  Please discuss your wishes with your attorney. She or he may use language like the sample below to construct your bequest:
“I give and bequeath the sum of $____ [or ____% of my estate, or the following described property e.g. stocks, savings bonds, etc., or % of my residuary estate] to Maine Friends of Animals or its successor, a nonprofit organization incorporated in Maine, and with a business address of XXXXXXXX.”
If your attorney has any questions, he or she should contact us at (207) XXXXXXX.

Other bequests

In addition to your will, any financial arrangement that allows you to name a death beneficiary can become a bequest to Maine Friends of Animals. These include, but may not be limited to:  Life insurance policy, retirement savings plan (such as IRA, 401(k), 403(b), etc.), many financial accounts (such as CDs, savings accounts), revocable living trust. Contact your attorney, financial advisor or account manager for instructions, information, and to learn about potential tax benefits of naming Maine Friends of Animals as a beneficiary. If you decide to include Maine Friends of Animals in your estate planning, please be sure to let us know. We’d like the opportunity to thank you, and to let you know more about how your gift will sustain our work.

For more information, contact us at or 207-781-2187. You can be assured your commitment to animals becomes a living legacy that will help sustain MFOA’s mission to make Maine a more humane state.
