Host a fundraiser or event for HSU

From Facebook birthday fundraisers and bake sales to 5Ks, people can support causes they’re passionate about through their own fundraisers or events. We’re grateful for these creative go-getters at the Humane Society of Utah! 

Are you interested in hosting your own fundraiser or event to benefit the Humane Society of Utah? Here’s how to get started.

Host a fundraiser in lieu of gifts

Do you have an upcoming milestone you’re celebrating, like a birthday, wedding, or retirement? 

HSU makes it easy to ask for donations instead of gifts for your upcoming celebration.

There are two simple ways to create a digital fundraiser to benefit HSU.

  1. Want to celebrate a special occasion – birthday, anniversary, graduation, engagement, or wedding? Create a personal fundraiser! You can collect any of the much-needed items off our donation wishlist!
  2. Start a Facebook fundraiser. To start, visit the Humane Society of Utah’s Facebook page and click “Raise Money” under the “Fundraisers” tab. You may choose an existing HSU photo or upload one of your own.
