DIY Fundraiser or Event

The Humane Society of Charlotte is grateful for the generosity and support of people and organizations throughout the Charlotte region. Often, people spend their own time, money, and effort in organizing a fundraiser to benefit our shelter. These fundraisers vary in type and size but include bake sales, supply drives, golf tournaments, and more.

The Humane Society of Charlotte can support your event through:

  • Online fundraising tools (personal fundraising pages through DonorPerfect)
  • Our online Event Calendar

With at least four weeks notice, HSC can provide:

  • Informational Brochures
  • A mention in our e-Newsletter

Due to the number of requests we receive, the Humane Society of Charlotte may not be able to:

  • Send an HSC representative to participate in all events. Please understand that our staff is limited and we cannot commit to assisting with or appearing at every fundraising event.
  • Promote your event on social media channels.
  • Send emails to the HSC audience promoting your event.
  • Supply adoptable animals for your event.
    • Due to the large amount of requests for adoptable animals at events, we handle all such requests on a case-by-case basis. This is because all adoptable animals at Third Party Events must be handled by either a staff member or trained volunteer. Also, while taking the animals out can be beneficial, it can also be very stressful on them. Availability of trained staff members and volunteers, as well as consideration of the welfare of our animals is carefully considered with each event submission.
      1-3 animals = $250 donation
      4-6 animals = $500 donation
      7+ animals = please inquire

While we may be able to provide guidance for your event, we do not have the personnel to handle the organizational and administrative tasks associated with third-party events. Therefore, you are responsible for all details of the event including underwriting all of the related costs; recruiting volunteers to help out at the event; creating flyers to publicize the event, and working at the actual event.

If you’re interested in organizing and hosting your own event to benefit the Humane Society of Charlotte, we are happy to help you get started. Please review the links below to learn how we can support you, some tips to plan your event and our policies and procedures.
