Make monthly gifts via our BVMI Monthly Refill Program

Your donation is billed to your credit card each month and your sustaining support is automatically renewed each year. Once a year we will send you a record of your giving history for tax purposes and give you an opportunity to update your pledge amount or the way you choose to pay it. Of course, you can change or cancel your payments at anytime.

It's a simple way to budget charitable giving and BVMI is able to rely on your sustaining support month after month! Click here to learn more. Or, if you would like to get started, please click here! Make sure you check off the box about monthly donation  before you enter any card information.
