Animal Shelter Fundraising

Animal Shelter Fundraising Has a New Currency for Our Furry Friends

According to the ASPCA, in the U.S. 37-47% of all households have a dog and 30-37% have a cat. That’s an estimated 70-80 million dogs and 74-96 million cats. Our nation loves its furry friends and companions.

The sad reality, however, is that millions of animals are placed in shelters and also euthanized. There’s a great need for community animal shelters to raise money to help foster, care for and find forever homes for animals in need of loving homes. If you’re a pet lover, you’ve probably been asked repeatedly for money. The financial need is real. However, we’d like to share with you creative fundraising ideas that help you raise money without asking for money.

Funds2Orgs has worked with thousands of animal shelters to help them raise money with a new currency, collecting gently worn, used and new shoes. Shelters can engage their supporters with new animal shelter fundraisers. The more shoes animal shelters who partner with us collect, the greater the check is from Funds2Orgs. We issue a check based on the total weight of the shoes.
There are a number of reasons why so many shelters have sought us out as an animal shelter fundraising partner.

  • We are an accredited business with the Better Business Bureau.
  • We’re the leading shoe drive fundraising social enterprise in North America.
  • We provide everything our shoe drive partners need with no out-of-pocket costs. We understand most organizations are small and have limited resources.
    • We give you a team of fundraising coaches to work with you from start to finish.
    • We give you the collection material, including the bags and rubber bands.
    • We provide you the promotion and marketing material in the form of digital downloads. You can customize this content to your brand and shoe drive fundraiser.
    • We send a member of our driving team to pick up the shoes collected from your central location point.
    • We issue a check from Funds2Orgs within 2 business days of the shoes being received and processed in our warehouse.
  • The shoes collected through this unique animal shelter fundraising idea become inventory for micro-entrepreneurs (small business owners). The reality is that many micro-entrepreneurs and their families live in poverty, or even extreme poverty. Obtaining inventory in the form of shoes helps them create their own commerce opportunities. It gives them a hand-up as they develop their own economic paths, as opposed to a hand-out.
  • Shoe drive fundraisers for animal shelters also help Earth and life on our planet. In excess of 600 million shoes are thrown into landfills in the U.S. alone. Did you know it can take over 80 years for a single shoe to disintegrate? And, did you know that as shoes decompose they release toxins into the air? Animal shelter fundraising ideas that include collecting shoe drive fundraising do so much for so many, including our furry friends.
