Greetings,

Join us for Coffee, Cocktails & Conservation on November 28th! For this year’s Giving Tuesday (the global day of giving) we are hosting two free conservation conversations with some amazing people!

Grab your favorite morning beverage (coffee, tea, OJ, etc) and tune in for a talk with IEF Board Member Charlie Gray (African Lion Safari) and IEF Project leader Amos Gwema (Community Action for Wildlife Conservation Trust). They will discuss conserving Asian and African elephants and the importance of connecting humans and wildlife for their mutual benefit.

It’s close enough to happy hour, so grab your favorite beverage (adult or regular) and join IEF Board Member Lou Barreda (Myakka Elephant Ranch) and elephant researcher Lynn Von Hagen who will discuss the connections between elephants in human care and the impact they make in field work. Lynn will also share how her life took her to Kenya to work with communities and help wildlife.

These talks are our way of thanking you for your support on Giving Tuesday and every day. Without you, none of our work would be possible.

Make A Lasting Gift to Elephants

As 2023 comes to a close, besides wondering where this year went, you might also be considering your year-end financials. It is the perfect time to discuss the benefits of year-end charitable giving, estate planning for you, your loved ones, and the causes you care about.

There are many ways to support elephants, including gifts of stock, directing your Donor AdvisedFunds, and leaving a legacy in your will. Giving in these ways can help with next year’s taxes while making a bigger impact protecting the elephants we love. We’re always here to help guide you
