FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What does grantmaking organization mean?


Grantmaking organization means that as an organization, we raise money here in the U.S. and grant the funds to our partners in Africa.




How can you guarantee that 100% of my donation makes it to the programs?


We have a very generous founder, who underwrites all of our administrative expenses. Donations to Elephant Cooperation will go directly to our partners. All our partners in Africa are registered charities in their country and are reputable in the conservation community. We also perform site visits with our partners to ensure that donations are going directly to the programs.

Why should I donate to your organization and not directly to the partners?


Great question! If you prefer to donate directly to the partners, please do so. Although our partners are registered charities in their country, many of our partners do not have a 501(c)3 standing in the U.S. Some donors prefer to donate through EC because we have a 501(c)3 standing and donations are considered tax deducted.
