Each Trupanion member will be given the opportunity to select one of three nonprofits in their country to donate $1 toward each month. While it may seem like a small act, just $1 a month can make a huge difference in the work these organizations are able to accomplish and the animals and people that benefit from it. In 2014, Trupanion members donated over $104,000 to organizations in the Trupanion Member Donation Program— saving lives and aiding pets across North America.
Current Trupanion members will soon be able to select one of the three organizations listed in their country of residence by logging into the Member Portal. Under the Manage My Account section, select Manage Charity. Once there, select the new nonprofit you would like your $1 contribution to go to and click on the Save Changes button. New members will be able to select their organization of their choice during the enrollment process, and can easily change their preferences through the member portal as mentioned above, or with a quick phone call.
