A Charitable Donation Today Can Ease Your 2024 Tax Burden and Help a World in Need

Your tax-deductible gift to Heifer International gives a family livestock, training and hope for the future.

Looking for a meaningful cause to round out your charitable contributions for the 2024 tax year? Because Heifer International is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, donations are tax-deductible. Make your charitable contributions by midnight on December 31, 2024 to deduct them from your 2024 taxes. It’s a great way to include Heifer's mission to end hunger and poverty in your philanthropic efforts.

Since 1944, Heifer has provided farming families around the world with the tools and resources they need to thrive. We partner with smallholder farmers – especially women farmers – to improve their families’ food security and increase their incomes.

Every family receiving an animal from Heifer promises to give their animal's first offspring to another family in need, so your initial gift multiplies, on average, nine generations.

And Heifer’s projects are about more than just an animal: training around animal care, Earth-friendly agriculture and gender equity all provide the foundation for lasting change.

Heifer’s model of creating enduring transformation in its project communities is known to be an effective solution to poverty. It’s more than a one-time fix: Project participants gain the tools to create a resilient future for their families and communities. Making a tax-deductible contribution to Heifer as part of your tax planning solidifies you as part of that solution.

Heifer International is a reputable charity where your donation will be used responsibly. Learn more about making a tax-deductible, charitable gift.
