Frequently Asked Questions about Donations:
Q. Do I need a PayPal account to donate?
A. No, you may use a VISA, MasterCard, American Express or Discover. First enter the donation amount, then go to the bottom of the web page under the ‘Don’t Have A PayPal Account?’ and click continue.
Q. How much of my donation will go directly to On WIngs Of Care (OWOC)?
A. We have carefully selected PayPal as a way to collect online donations to ensure that as much as possible of your donation goes to OWOC. PayPal charges us a 2.9% fee plus $0.30 per transaction. Thus, for a $100.00 donation through PayPal, OWOC would receive $96.80.
Q. Is my donation tax deductible?
A. Yes, OWOC has 501(c)(3) status which means that you are allowed to deduct 100% of your donation. The fact that you make the payment through PayPal (and we receive only about 97% of your donation) does not change this.
Q. Is the PayPal site secure?
A. We have taken utmost care that PayPal is 100% secure and trustworthy. PayPal offers the highest level of online security and handles thousands of transactions per day.
Q. May I make an anonymous donation?
A. PayPal does not offer an anonymous donation option. Of course, you needn't give any personal information that you want kept private. We do ask that you give us an email or postal address so that we can send you a receipt to use for your tax purposes, and we also ask that you specify what you would like your donation to go toward, if you have a preference -- e.g., a specific rescue animal, specific types of rescues or other work we are doing.
Q.Are there other ways to donate to OWOC?
A.You may always contact us directly by email or US mail to make a donation, or send a check to OWOC to the address noted above or on our Contact page.
