Yes, we do need money to be able to advocate for cougars. We are their voice in the human world. We encourage you to donate whenever and whatever you feel is the right amount for you. We deeply appreciate your financial support. It allows us to be productive and to actively progress.


When you shop in our store, your purchase directly supports our programs. Purchasing items with The Cougar Fund logo also helps spread the word about our organization and the work we do to protect cougars across the country.
