Donations & Fundraising
Raising funds is the one of most critical way that any organization is able to achieve its mission and goals. Without the help of its supporters, success would be difficult. The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund depends on the support of Mariah Saves Gorillas to aid in the research and protection of the mountain gorillas and 100% of the proceeds from my recycling efforts is donated to DFGFI through Eco-Cell. The following links are GREAT ways that you can more directly support gorilla conservation.
This is the official Mariah Saves Gorillas fundraising site, made possible through First Giving. Please donate today!

Adopt your very own infant gorilla or support a patrol. There are lots of options here! I adopted my very own infant gorilla, named Ubwuzu, and it was the most special experience. (As many kids always ask) NO the gorilla does not live with me (LOL!)... the money donated directly supports a gorilla pack being studied in the wild and you get a certificate and picture of the gorilla you adopt. This makes a great gift!!
Coins for Congo is a wonderful way to raise funds by collecting those pennies and loose change. You can help people in the Congo through vital health, education and livelihood programs offered through DFGFI which in turn benefit all gorilla conservation efforts. I completed my very first Coins For Congo Penny Drive in 2nd grade!
