Support Stichting Leeuw

Stichting Leeuw has big plans for the future of the big cats in the shelter. All animals that are taken care of deserve a future and we try to relocate them to a habitat that is as natural as possible. That is why Stichting Leeuw works together with sister foundation The Lions Foundation in South Africa where the big cats can live in protected areas.

Healthy big cats can live in large enclosures in their natural environment and climate after a transitional period. Animals that for whatever reason do not benefit from this, stay at Stichting Leeuw in the Netherlands.

Many of the big cats that are taken care of were born in captivity or taken from the wild as small animals. They have never really been able to live in freedom as wild creatures. Stichting Leeuw wants to bring the big cats to an environment that is as close as possible to their natural habitat.

There are high costs involved in this, and that is why we are asking for support. Help us give the big cats a permanent home in nature. Without intervention, the chance that our children will be able to hear the lion roaring on the African savanna in the future will be very small.

Do you care about lions, tigers and other endangered big cats and would you like to support Stichting Leeuw? As a donor you can donate a monthly amount to support the foundation. It is also possible to opt for a recurring donation or to give a one-off gift.

If you want to make your donation more personal, adopt one of our animals. Adoption is possible with a monthly contribution of at least € 10, – euro. Adoption is for at least one year.

With an adoption you will receive an adoption certificate and passport of the animal. You will also receive an annual pass for Dierenpark Hoenderdaell (this is valid as long as you remain an adopter). In addition, you will be invited to the annual Donor Day and you can make an appointment with a caretaker/volunteer once a year to visit ‘your’ big cat. Please note: an adoption visit is possible from the age of 16.

Always wanted to come face to face with a tiger or lion? By booking a Tiger Workshop you support the foundation and at the same time you experience the most unforgettable adventure!

Do you care about lions, tigers and other endangered big cats and would you like to support Stichting Leeuw? One of the most beneficial ways to do this is through a recurring donation.

With a recurring donation you enjoy maximum tax benefit, so without deduction restrictions. You can enter a donation to Stichting Leeuw as an annual deduction in your tax return.

If you have any questions about the ANBI or a recurring donation of 5 years, please send us an email and we will be happy to help you!

More and more people decide to donate (part of) their inheritance to charity. Because they think it is important that they continue to work on the ideal they have after their death. In this way, they also contribute to a better world after their passing.

Bequeathing to a charity is only possible through a will, drawn up by a notary. A codicil (own handwritten statement) is not sufficient.

Charities with ANBI status do not have to pay tax on an inheritance or bequest. They are completely exempt from inheritance tax. As a result, charities can use their share of a legacy 100 percent for their goal. For more information, please contact us.

Whatever you choose... Choose to give big cats a better future!
