The SPCA receives only approximately 3% of its annual operating budget of $500,000 from Adams County. We also receive donations from several townships/municipalities for our much needed services, but we continue to struggle to support the very important task of caring for the many animals that come through our doors. We do fundraising, memberships, apply for grants and receive some bequests. For the past couple of years, too many animals have become displaced orphans; a tragedy of these harsh economic times. We take in approximately 3000 animals per year and each year that number increases.
By sponsoring one of our annual events, you are part of the solution to change the world we live in for the better. The Animals Thank You!
Each year, we hold a few major fundraisers and attend several smaller events. Each year, we have our Pledged Loyalty Walk in April. It is known within our community and has been for many years. Each year, it draws more attention and gets bigger & better. In the early fall, we have an annual Dinner Gala & Auction. It is a formal dinner & dining experience with entertainment as well as many, assorted valuable new & antique items for auction. Just in time to start your holiday shopping while helping the animals directly. Then in the later fall, we have a big Basket Bingo - Longaberger items and more!
We will try to promote our sponsor's support the best we can. We list our sponsors in media advertisements, flyers/brochures, on our website and are willing to display/offer your business cards, brochures or information at the event in which you are a sponsor. Not only are you assisting us in helping these unwanted animals, you can create more exposure for your business. We have over 1,500 members currently, and that increases each year. Sponsorships may be private, personal or business. You can request for us "not" to list your name or business. We just get overly excited to have sponsors, that we wish to show you off !
In order for our fundraising events to be profitable and beneficial for our animals, we need to maintain the event expense to a minimum. That's why the support is needed and greatly appreciated. Our staff and many volunteers work really hard to make the shelter a better place for the animals that find their way to us. The animals don't choose to be here, but they do deserve a second chance for a better life and a loving, new home. We could not do this, without the continued support of our community members and our the friends of the animals.
We do our best, to keep our website "Calendar of Events" current. As events become available for sponsorship, you will see a " Sponsor Me " button listed under that event details. Transactions may be made online or by check. Make checks payable to the ACSPCA and jot a note, in the memo, to note your sponsorship. You may mail, drop off, or email your business information to us, that you wish for us to display at the chosen sponsored event.
Remember, all donations are Tax-Deductible. We will be happy to provide a receipt, if requested, for tax purposes. Just be sure to let us know. We wish for this to benefit the animals the best way it can. By sponsoring one of our annual events, you are part of the solution to change the world these animals live in, for the better. The Animals Thank You!
