Why Give to the Orang Utan Republik Foundation
The Orang Utan Republik Foundation is a publicly supported, non-profit charity that depends upon the generosity of the community to fund its vital programs. Without such support, we could not provide the resources to our Indonesian partners to help meet our mission.
With so many organizations and causes to choose from, why should you consider donating to us?
We are a small but effective organization that works directly with the communities that we serve. We care passionately about our mission and vision. We believe in leveraging our funds to maximize their full potential. We also value donations no matter how large or small. We take each donation as a serious commitment of trust from each donor, and we manage the funds wisely and accountably as we meet our mission.
Our leadership has had over 25 years of experience in the non-profit world and has a hands-on approach from project inception to completion to insure the funds are spent in the best interest of the organization. Importantly, OURF leadership is committed to helping our Indonesian partners build the capacity they need to become effective, self-reliant and sustainable as an organization in the years ahead.
For donors in the United States where OURF is incorporated, the IRS has granted OURF with 501(c)(3) status which means individuals can deduct their donations to the fullest extent allowed by law. Donors should consult with their accountants as to the specific tax deductions they might benefit from the various types of donations allowed. Whether the donation is monetary or in-kind, OURF is appreciative of the generosity the public provides to our organization and its mission to save wild orangutans through education initiatives and innovative collaborative projects.
