Vanguard Society

Join a special group of donors at the leading edge of PETA's vital work to end the suffering, abuse, and neglect of animals by becoming a member of PETA's Vanguard Society today.

We chose the name Vanguard because of what it means: the forefront of a movement. Our Vanguard Society members make it possible for PETA to continue to lead the way in the fight for animal rights.

Your generous tax-deductible Vanguard Society gift will ensure that we can continue our fight to stop the abuse and neglect of all animals—whether on factory farms, in circuses, in laboratories, or even in backyards. Our Vanguard Society members expect more for their investment in our life-changing work for animals, which is why they receive exclusive updates on all of PETA's campaigns.

Won't you make a significant contribution toward ending animal abuse and suffering around the world with your gift of $500 or more right now? If you're considering a gift of $100,000 or more or an estate gift, click here to discuss your plans with one of our philanthropic specialists.

Bank Routing & Account Numbers

To make a payment directly from your U.S. bank account, you will need to provide the routing number for your bank, as well as your account number. Both of these numbers can be found at the bottom of a check issued for your bank account.

At the bottom of your check you will find three numbers - the routing number which is always 9 digits long for U.S. banks, the account number which can be up to 17 digits long, and the check number which will match the number found in the upper right corner of the check. These sets of numbers can appear in a variety of orders on your check. However, you will always find the routing number surrounded by this symbol ACH Routing Symbol, and the account number will always be to the left of this symbol ACH Account Symbol.

Please use the image below for an example of how your routing and account numbers may appear on your check.

Sample Check:

The routing number comes first and is surrounded by the ACH Routing Symbol symbol, the account number comes next and is followed by the ACH Account Symbol symbol.
