Volunteer fundraising makes a big difference in our bottom line, and is a great way to have fun while supporting the shelter! You can throw a party, host a yard sale, or have a bowl-a-thon. You can ask for donations in lieu of gifts at your wedding or birthday party, or get some friends together for a big bake sale (or a Pink Bunny Extravaganza). Do you own your own business? Spend a day collecting contributions, put out a donation jar, or donate a portion of your receipts for a day. Whatever you choose, you’ll be helping to save lives at VAO – here’s how to do it:
Step 1: Read our Third Party Event Guidelines document. It’ll tell you everything you need to know about raising money or supplies for the shelter, and it has lots of ideas for events, too!
Step 3: Host your event and have a blast!
Step 4: Drop off your donations and help save lives!
Contact the shelter with any questions, and thank you!
