Make a Donation to the Cleveland APL

Since we receive no government funding, the Cleveland Animal Protective League relies on generous friends like you to make a difference in the lives of the animals for whom we shelter, rescue, and provide assistance.

Donor Privacy Statement – The Cleveland Animal Protective League is committed to our donors’ privacy rights. We do not trade, share or sell any of our donors’ personal information to other organizations or entities, including other charities and animal shelters. This applies to both online and offline donors.

The CARES Act Changes Giving

We truly appreciate you thinking of the Cleveland APL and our animals now more than ever. The CARES Act, the government stimulus bill passed in March 2020, provides additional tax relief for donors who give to qualified charitable organizations—charities like the Cleveland APL. Here’s how the CARES Act can help you help the animals in our community in 2020.

  • If you take the standard deduction, you can claim an above-the-line tax deduction for cash donations up to $300 (up to $600 for couples).
  • If you itemize your deductions, you can deduct more of your cash donations this year—up to 100% of your adjusted gross income. Previously, the limit was only 60%!
  • Corporations can deduct up to 25% of taxable income for cash donations—the limit was only 10% before!

For more information, please consult your lawyer, tax professional or financial advisor to decide what will work best for your circumstances. Legislation includes some restrictions.
