The Friends of the Tsunami Animal-People Alliance (FoTAPA) is a US-based organisation dedicated to improving the welfare of the animals and the people in the tsunami zone in Sri Lanka. FoTAPA is a non-profit organisation that the US Internal Revenue Service has designated as 501(c)(3) tax exempt (copy of IRS designation letter available). Donations by US taxpayers are deductible in accordance with Internal Revenue Service regulations. Residents of other countries may also donate to FoTAPA or directly to TAPA. FoTAPA makes grants for vaccinating and sterilising animals in Sri Lanka's tsunami zone to improve the welfare of the animals and the people by reducing the threat of rabies and dog bites, while humanely managing the animal population.

Please include your complete contact information, including e-mail address, so that we can confirm receipt. Receipts for tax purposes will be issued. Contact us for additional information.
Internal donations from the FoTAPA Board cover all administration expenses, including PayPal charges, in order that 100% of your donation can be directed totally to the field sterilisation program in Sri Lanka.
FoTAPA itself does not have members. However, donors to FoTAPA will receive the same recognition on the TAPA website and in the annual report as for a donation made directly to TAPA.
