Other Successful Fundraising Ideas:

Consider these fundraising ideas to help you implement and sustain your SAF-T program:

– Join with your partner animal shelter and/or animal rescue organization to host a joint fundraiser.

– Ask local school classrooms and youth community groups to “adopt” your SAF-T program and help with supply drives and raising funds.

– Speak at local churches and community organizations about SAF-T and ask for their help with a supply drive or raising donations.

– Ask your local pet food store to place a canister near the front door to accept food and pet supply donations.

– Ask your partner veterinarian to place a donation canister in their clinic.

– Place donation canisters in stores around your community.

– Place small trees in stores around your community with paper ornaments that list an item that your SAF-T program needs. Supporters will take the ornament and purchase the item.

And many more ideas are listed in the SAF-T Start-Up Manual.
