** Update
Our Giving Tuesday Campaign is now live.  If you would like to be a part of this campaign and have your donation doubled, so it can go twice as far in helping elephants, please DONATE HERE (donations must be made between 3am and 11.59pm Pacific Standard Time on Tuesday 28th November 2017 to be eligible for the match – full details and rules on how the match works can be found at the bottom of this page).

Thank you in advance for working with us to make double-the-difference for elephants and their wild friends at this important time.

As you may know, #GivingTuesday (28th November 2017) is a day devoted to giving back and this year, we have a chance to raise a staggering $500,000 for our conservation projects in a single day, but we need our supporters help to make it happen.

Make a donation to the DSWT on 28th November 2017 (via one of our approved Giving Tuesday donation methods) and a group of generous supporters have pledged to match your donations, doubling their impact, up to a total of $250,000.

ELEPHANTS URGENTLY NEED A HELPING HAND

Last week’s events in the United States around lifting a ban on the import of elephant hunting trophies (the final outcome of which is still pending) have demonstrated yet another dire threat facing elephants’ survival. On Tuesday 28th, Giving Tuesday, we have the chance to come together to offer Kenya’s wild elephants a better future, raising funds for our field operations to ensure they have the protected safe haven they need to roam and thrive.

We will be sharing a specific link to our Giving Tuesday Campaign page, via our website and social media channels, when we go live at 3AM Pacific Standard Time on Giving Tuesday.

Thank you in advance for working with us to make double-the-difference for elephants and their wild friends at this important time.
