What Types of Animal Shelter Fundraisers are Popular

June 25, 2014

There are many great funraisers that can help your community raise money for the local animal shelter. The poor beasts that live at the shelter need continuous care, food, and attention. There is often too little to go around, and every little bit helps keep the shelter running smoothly. Every animal deserves a shot at a great life. The sad dogs and cats that enter the shelter are often abandoned with serious medical conditions. Unfortunetly, many are put down because the cost to heal them is too high. Even healthy animals are put to sleep because of overcrowding. However, all that can change with a fundraiser that helps keep every animal happy and healthy until they find a permanent home.

A Benefit Dinner

Organize a benefit at a swankly location in town. Ask for donations for a silent auction that will raise even more moneuy. You can even try to get a local celebrity to say a speech about their love for animals. This could attract more preople to the benefit. Hire the best band and caterer in town to keep people entertained and satsified all nightr long. Offer a cash bar where people can donate whatever they like to help keep the costs of the animal shelter down. If you get the alcohal dontated, then every penny made on top will go directly to the shelter.

Your city hosts a plethora of benefits; therefore, you need to think of a way to make your stand out. It is for a good cause, and most people love any excuse for a party. However, a unique theme could make it even better. For example, a masquerade never goes out of style. You could even host a Monte Carlo themed event with gambling tables all around. This will be a night that nobody forgets, and it will raise an incredible amount of money for the shelter if done right.

The Great Raffle

A raffle is one of the easiest fundraisers around because it costs very little to pull off. All you have to do is buy a big ticket item. The prize could even be donated if you ask the right people. All you will have to pay for is tickets and advetising. This is much less than organizing an event, and it could raise the same amount of money too. Hopefully, a combination of these ideas will help the animal shelter.
