Campaign for a Compassionate Community

The Campaign for a Compassionate Community was publicly announced on February 12, at the Jacksonville Humane Society.  This campaign will focus on raising monies to build the new JHS Humane Care and Education Center, to replace the facilities destroyed in the 2007 fire. To make a donation as part of the J. Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver $100,000 challenge grant, select Capital Campaign on the JHS donation page to make your gift. How the challenge works:  The Weavers will match your donations until $100,000 is reached.  For example:  If you make a give of $50, the Weavers will gift another $50 until the $100,000 is reached.  Make your donation today!
