More Ways to Give

Bonobos could go extinct in our lifetime. We're on a mission to stop that, and you can join us! 

Give Stocks, Bonds, IRA and More

Donating appreciated assets such as stocks and bonds is a powerful and easy way not only to save bonobos and Congo rainforest, but also to save on your taxes.

When you make a gift to Friends of Bonobos through your appreciated asset you will have an immediate impact on the lives of the bonobos of Lola ya Bonobo sanctuary and ensure the protection of rewilded bonobos and their habitat at Ekolo ya Bonobo Community Reserve.

Become a Mosungi

In Lingala (a language spoken in the DRC) the word Mosungi is best translated as a cross between a godparent and a benefactor.

It costs about $10,000 per year to rebuild a bonobo's life. By becoming a bonobo Mosungi, you will give a bonobo everything he or she needs - food, enrichment, medical care, and a substitute human mom - to live a long and healthy life and to hopefully return to the wild someday
