In addition to cash donations, the EcoVivarium Living Museum needs various types of food, enrichment items, and supplies. We welcome gifts of all kinds. From baby food and reptile substrate to paper towels and enrichment toys, the Museum and animals appreciate your help! Support of this nature is considered a gift in-kind and is eligible for tax deductions under charitable giving as defined by the IRS.
Links have been provided for many items, or check out our Amazon Wish List for more ideas. EcoVivarium appreciates everyone who donates to us through Amazon. Remember to include a “gift note” with your name, email address, and mailing address! If there is no “Gift Note,” we have no way of knowing who sent the package, plus we want to let you know items arrived safely and provide a tax receipt.
