Day of Giving 2024 – Let’s Get Creative!

Day of Giving is just around the corner at the Humane Society of Utah. On Wednesday, March 20th, we are counting on our community to come together and support lifesaving medical care, food, shelter, and resources for Utah’s most vulnerable animals. This is a challenging time for shelters across the nation, with the cost of care skyrocketing and limited resources for pet guardians and homeless animals. That is why we want to make this the best Day of Giving yet! Thanks to an anonymous longtime donor, all Day of Giving contributions will be matched up to $25,000. Your donation will go twice as far and help twice as many animals on March 20th!

Since we are getting into the spirit of giving, let’s talk about some of the ways you can support animals at the Humane Society of Utah. You are always welcome to visit our donation page and make a quick contribution. No amount is too small, and everything helps! But what are some other creative ways to give?

Give Year-Round With a Monthly Donation

Set up a monthly donation through our website to make your contributions impactful and effortless. Your designated amount will come to HSU automatically each month, so you don’t even have to think about it! With monthly giving, even small amounts add up over time to make a big impact. It is a win-win for you and the animals who depend on your support!

Host Your Own Fundraiser

Whoever said supporting your favorite cause can’t be fun?! Get together with friends, coworkers, or club members and put together your own fundraiser for HSU. There are many creative ideas for giving to charity. You can host a donation drive, sell homemade pet toys or treats, or come up with an exciting competition at your work to raise funds. And if you need materials or support from HSU, fill out the fundraising event application on our website. 

In-person fundraisers may not be your thing. That’s okay! Starting a Facebook fundraiser is easy and effective. Visit our Facebook page and click ‘Raise Money’ to get started.

Ways to Give For the Future

Do you want to provide long-lasting support for the Humane Society of Utah? Visit our planned giving page to learn how charitable giving can fit into your financial plans. Maybe a gift of stock makes sense for you. Perhaps you want to make a donation from your IRA rather than your checking account. Or maybe you even want to include the Humane Society of Utah in your will. With planned giving you can leave a lasting legacy of compassion and support, while receiving tax benefits for yourself and your loved ones.

Other Ways to Support

We are always grateful for monetary donations at the Humane Society of Utah. A donation of $5 can help cover toys, treats, blankets, or other important supplies for our animals. And if everyone who reads this gives $5, think of how much that would add up! But perhaps a gift of money is not possible at this time. Or maybe you are interested in other creative ways of giving. There are other fantastic ways to support the Humane Society of Utah!  

  • Give the gift of your time and compassion by volunteering or fostering our most vulnerable animals.
  • Give the gift of supplies or pet items. Check out our donation wish list for more information.
  • Give the gift of your voice! Encourage others to adopt, donate, or volunteer. You can talk to your friends directly about our programs or just share our posts on social media. Just one click, and you can help get the word out!

Remember to mark your calendars for March 20th, and join the movement for Day of Giving 2024! However you choose to give, know that your support will help an animal find a home, receive medical attention, or get the resources needed to remain with their loving guardian. With your help, we can make this the best Day of Giving ever!
