More Ways to Give

In addition to online donations, monthly donations, tribute gifts, and wishlist or drop-off donations, there are more ways you can help.

Employer Matching

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs to match their employees’ charitable contributions. Gifts from employees’ spouses and retirees may also qualify for a match. Search to find out if your employer has a matching gift program. It’s a quick and easy way to double your contribution. Regular contributions can make a big impact over time, providing dogs and cats with refuge, medical care, and a second chance.

  • Circle of Friends

    The Circle of Friends recognizes our most committed supporters who contribute $1,000 or more annually in support of our life changing work. Their generosity is truly transformative and as such we honor their commitment to our mission by listing members’ names on our Annual Donor Wall in the Oakland Adoption Center lobby. For more information about our Circle of Friends please contact our Development Department (510) 563-4604 or

  • Levels & Benefit Information
  • Vehicle Donations

    Have a vehicle you no longer need? Donating a car to the East Bay SPCA is simple and easy! It’s as easy as filling out the online donation form or calling 1-855-500-RIDE. Your vehicle will be towed at no cost! Proceeds from the sale help provide second chances to animals in our care.

    IRA Rollovers

    Think dogs are the only ones who can roll over? You can help local pets by giving through your IRA. You can turn your required minimum distribution into a tax-wise charitable gift directly from your IRA to East Bay SPCA, and immediately help the pets in our care.

    You will need to fill out a form with your account custodian and provide East Bay SPCA’s tax ID number, which is 94-1322202. Our legal name is East Bay Society of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

    By consulting with your attorney or financial planner, you can learn more about how these gifts could reduce your tax bill while also doing incredible good for the pets in our care. Thank you for your generosity!
