Gifts to MN SNAP are tax deductible
Every dollar counts! At MN SNAP, donor dollars are put to the most efficient and effective use possible.
MN SNAP incurs many expenses in order to subsidize more than 17,000 surgeries per year. Just our fuel costs for the mobile surgery suite exceed $20,000 every year! General operating funds help us to continue to deliver our mission across the state.Make a Donation
Many MN SNAP supporters wish to partially or fully subsidize a surgery, or sponsor a clinic. The links below will take you to our pages on GiveMN.com, which outline options for directing your gift:
- MN SNAP’s Fix a Feral Grant Fund (covers the cost of surgery for a feral cat caretaker)
- MN SNAP’s Spay It Forward Grant Fund (covers the cost of surgery for a pet owner)
After your donation is received, you’ll receive a letter outlining how your gift will be used and more information on the number and types of animals helped.
If your employer supports a workplace giving program, your employer’s payroll department handles everything! Donations to MN SNAP from each paycheck add up to a significant gift over a one-year period. Many employers will match your monetary donation to MN SNAP, allowing your money to work twice as hard at saving animals by reducing overpopulation. You can help MN SNAP by finding out if your company has a corporate giving program or foundation. Many companies also match funds to time spent volunteering, offering a set number of dollars in exchange for time contributed to the organization.
Below is a sample list of companies who have established workplace giving and/or matching gift programs. If your company is on the list, remember to send in a matching form with your donation next time you give to MN SNAP. If your company is not on the list, please inquire if they have such programs. Your company’s HR department should be able to provide you with the form or will know of the presence of these programs.

- Thrivent Financial
- United Health
- United Way (see United Way Tab)
- University of Minnesota
- Wells Fargo

Leave a legacy that will help save lives by reducing pet overpopulation!
A planned gift or legacy gift will help to ensure that MN SNAP will be there for those pets and families in need. These gifts provide an estate tax deduction and have a tremendous impact on our ability to continue our ongoing mission to help end the death and suffering of homeless animals due to pet overpopulation by providing high-quality, affordable, and accessible spay and neuter services to those in need.
In recent years, a variety of donors has informed us of an intention to include a gift to MN SNAP in their wills. Considerations for giving include the purpose of the gift, funding source, impact to income, estate tax planning and impact on family members from your contribution.
Please consult with your legal counsel to help best decide the process and necessary language.
Planned giving pledges will be honored in MN SNAP’s annual report.
United Way processes workplace payroll deductions and will forward to the charity of your choice. While animal related charities can’t be United Way agencies, supporters may donate to MN SNAP through United Way. You may make your donation to MN SNAP through United Way as follows:
