How to Help
The success of our work depends on your generous support; it is only with the help of our members and supporters that we are able to continue with our vital endeavours to save the orangutan and its rainforest home.
There are now more ways than ever of supporting the Orangutan Foundation, from wherever you are in the world. Whether it’s volunteering, becoming a member, adopting an orangutan, or holding your own fundraising event, we are always on-hand to offer help and advice.
See below for just some of the ways you can support the work of the Orangutan Foundation, and please do get in touch with any other ideas, for collection tins and for any other advice or assistance.
Orangutan Awareness Week
Orangutan Awareness Week runs in November and includes Orange for Orangutan Day© ... we’d greatly value your involvement in it!
Become a Member of the Orangutan Foundation Today
As a non-government funded organisation, we are very grateful for the support from our members and donors as, otherwise, it would be impossible to continue in our endeavours to secure the long-term survival of orangutans in the wild and to raise public awareness of the threats facing orangutans and the rainforest eco-system.
Make a Donation to the Orangutan Foundation
The Orangutan Foundation relies on public support to continue our vital conservation work. By supporting us you are making a direct contribution to the conservation of the orangutan.

Adopt an Orangutan
Adopting an orangutan is an ideal gift and a great way to show you care.
