Dorothy’s Circle Legacy Program

Our beloved Dorothy was a kind and gentle soul, who was adored by her fellow chimpanzees and dedicated caregivers. She was one of the first orphans to be saved by Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue and although she passed away in 2008, Dorothy’s story will always be an inspiration and she will forever remain in our hearts.

Join Dorothy’s Circle and leave a lasting legacy that will help ensure a lifetime of care for our resident chimpanzees and secure the future for great apes living free in the Wall-Mbargue Forest. Your gift will be used to support the mission of Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue to provide sanctuary for chimpanzee orphans in Cameroon while spearheading and supporting habitat protection, law enforcement and conservation education programs.


There are a variety of options for leaving a lasting legacy and receiving substantial tax benefits for you and your family. Your attorney, financial advisor or tax professional can advise you on how best to accomplish your charitable goals.

Planned Giving options include:
  • Will or Trust
  • Retirement Assets
  • Life Insurance
  • Stocks and Bonds
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Endowments
  • Property

Dedicated to the beauty and hope Dorothy embodied, including Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue in your estate planning will ensure our critical conservation work continues. Together we can secure a compassionate future in her honor.

Volunteer Monica Szczupider captured the tender moments at Dorothy’s funeral. One such heartfelt image was published in National Geographic.
