What is in the Online Toolkit?
The free Team ASPCA Online Toolkit includes customizable signs and flyers for promoting your event. It also contains party printables like straw flags, donation jar labels, and paw print decorations! We also provide you with banners to use to promote your event on socials – like Facebook cover photos and Instagram images.
Why should I fundraise?
We hope you take advantage of this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of homeless, abused and injured animals. When you fundraise for the ASPCA, not only are you raising crucial funds to support our life-saving programs and initiatives, but you are also spreading awareness of the ASPCA’s mission to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States. And there is no fundraising minimum—a gift in any amount is much appreciated and goes a long way in helping our animal friends.
What kind of fundraiser can I host?
We suggest picking a fundraiser that you find fun and that you can get others excited about. The sky is the limit in the ways that you can work with your family, friends and community to raise funds to help make this world a better place for our animal friends. Some ideas:
- Hold a bake sale, craft sale, lemonade stand or pie eating contest.
- Organize a gala, wine tasting, bingo night or concert for the ASPCA.
- Organize a neighborhood dog walk or pet parade.
- Offer services to your neighbors for a donation - wash cars, babysit, mow lawns, shovel snow or pet-sit.
If I am hosting an event, what is the best way to collect donations?
If you are hosting an event with a suggested donation to attend, the easiest way to collect these donations is through credit card, checking account or PayPal payments on your online fundraising page!
Do I have to register/login first to start creating my fundraising page and access the Online Toolkit?
Yes, you must register your event in order to create your fundraising page and download the Online Toolkit.
Is there a minimum age requirement for registering a Team ASPCA Fundraiser Event?
Yes, you must be at least the age of majority in the state where you reside. In most states, the age of majority is 18 years old, however, in a few states, such as Nebraska, Alabama and Mississippi, the age of majority is older than 18 years old. Creating a page requires registering your name and contact information with the ASPCA. If you are under the applicable age of majority, please ask your parent or guardian to register on your behalf.
Where do donations made through my online fundraising page go?
Online donations made on your fundraising page go directly to the ASPCA. The donation amount will be shown on your page and 100% of the contributions will be attributed towards your fundraising goal.
Are the donations tax-deductible?
Donations made to the ASPCA are 100% tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
