Hosting a Fundraiser?

 How to plan a fundraiser

Planning donation drives are a great way for you to help the animals at the Jacksonville Humane Society.  The time and effort that you put into your event will benefit the thousands of injured, neglected or abandoned animals at the Jacksonville Humane Society.  Our mission to provide a healthy and happy stay until their forever family finds them would not be possible without the generosity and support from people within our community, like you! No matter how large or small, your contribution will make a big difference!

Rules & Guidelines
The third-party event hosts are responsible for all aspects of the event, including organizing, funding, planning, promoting, managing and staffing. JHS is unable to provide assistance with any of these aspects. (For instance, we cannot pay for any event-related costs, provide mailing lists, send e-mail blasts or direct mail promoting the event, ensure attendance, etc.) Requests for JHS staff, volunteers and/or animals to attend your event are handled on a case-by case basis, but cannot be guaranteed.
Upon approval, you may, in most instances, use the JHS name and logo. JHS must pre-approve all flyers, press releases, publications and any other event promotional materials. All materials must clearly indicate that the event is not sponsored by JHS. It is important that the shelter name and logo be used correctly and spelled properly. Always refer to the organization as the Jacksonville Humane Society (not simply the Humane Society). The logo may be reproduced in all black or in all white (on a black or equally dark background.) For color print jobs the color logo should be used.
