GENERAL DONATIONS


Oaken Acres ALWAYS loves getting donations! You can give online with or without a Paypal account.
You can also snail mail a donation to us at:
Oaken Acres
12140 Aldrich Road
Sycamore, IL   60178

Oaken Acres donations go directly to animal care. That might mean food, cages, veterinary costs and supplies, or seasonal personnel to help during our busy "baby season" each year, May through August. Rehabbers are extremely frugal and resourceful and you can be assured that your dollars are spent wisely. Once you donate, you'll receive our annual mailings and invitations to our spring fundraiser Babies Gone Wild! and our Open House in July. 

BEQUESTS


Many people have chosen to leave a bequest for Oaken Acres in their wills. Those are especially helpful and allow us to accomplish some goals without having to do additional fundraising. In the past, bequests have funded entire cages, our new fawn corral, the new Care Center and much more. A bequest for our wildlife patients is a wonderful gift.

OTHER WAYS TO HELP

We have several projects that people/groups can do to help OA that doesn’t involve hands-on animal care. A lot of these are woodworking – building birdhouses to raise money, build nesting boxes for us to use to relocate animals, building cage accessories for our patients.

Below are the layouts and details of the desired construction.
