Holiday Campaign

Warm puppy kisses and whiskers on kittens are a few of our favorite things this holiday season!

However you celebrate this special time of year, you can make the season bright for animals in need by creating a Team ASPCA Holiday Campaign. Your support this holiday season can make a world of difference for animals who need it most.

While wishing friends and family a joyous holiday, let them know that supporting your love of animals is a great way to give back this season. Start spreading the love today!
 

 
Frequently Asked Questions

What is in the Online Toolkit?

The free Team ASPCA Online Toolkit includes customizable signs and flyers for promoting your Holiday Campaign. 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 social media—like Facebook cover photos and Instagram images. Whether you are hosting an event or having a virtual fundraiser, we’ve got your ASPCA materials ready!


Why should I fundraise with a Holiday Campaign?

The ASPCA is celebrating 150 years of helping animals in need! We hope you take advantage of this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of homeless, abused and neglected 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 Holiday Campaign event can I host?

We suggest picking a fundraiser activity 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:

- Host a holiday 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.
- Ask for donations to your Holiday Campaign page in lieu of holiday gifts.

Do I have to host a fundraiser event to have a Holiday Campaign?

No! Using social media, you can have a virtual, ongoing fundraiser. The easiest way to spread the word about your Holiday Campaign is to send an email to close friends and family and post about your fundraising page on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Make sure to include the URL to your Holiday Campaign page. By having an online fundraiser, you can extend your donor network all across the country or even the world! The opportunities to help injured and abused animals are endless.


If I am hosting a campaign 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!

Donations made by check or money order should be made payable to the “ASPCA” and sent to:

ASPCA Ambassadors
520 Eighth Ave, 7th FL
New York, NY 10018

*Please specify your Holiday Campaign in the memo section*


Do I have to register/login first to start creating my Holiday Campaign page and access the Online Toolkit?

Yes, you must register in order to create your Holiday Campaign page and download the Online Toolkit.


Is there a minimum age requirement for registering a Holiday Campaign page?

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 campaign page go?

Online donations made on your Holiday Campaign 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.
