Host an Event or Drive

Thank you for your interest in supporting the Humane Society of Sarasota County. Friends like you make it possible for us to make a difference in the lives of homeless pets in our community. We receive no federal funding, nor are we supported by any national humane organization. We rely on the generosity of our donors to continue our mission of saving lives.

HSSC is fortunate to receive many requests from individuals, groups, organizations, and businesses interested in hosting a third-party fundraiser (such as a party, adoption event, or donation drive) to benefit HSSC. A third-party fundraiser is defined as an individual, group, organization, or business raising money on behalf of HSSC by hosting an approved fundraiser or event.

We are grateful for the awareness, support, and funds raised through third-party efforts. However, due to our limited resources, we must carefully consider our level of involvement with these events. We ask to be notified at least 30 days before an event so that we can make sure your expectations are met, provide additional promotional support to the best of our ability, and give you proper recognition. Depending on the time of year, we may be able to accommodate requests with less notice.

Inside the packet you will find our event guidelines and policies, our third-party fundraising application, and some ideas. Feel free to get creative and put the “fun” in fundraising. Once you have your idea in mind, please fill out and submit the event application. We will review your request and contact you with confirmation. Please be as specific as possible when filling out the application.

Again, we truly appreciate your willingness to help HSSC make a difference in the lives of animals in our community.
