Looking for an easy way to give back? Create your own personalized fundraising webpage for Foothills Animal Shelter on GivingFirst.org. It’s quick, it’s free to set up and it’s a unique way to provide support for the animals in their care.
Setting up a webpage can help you reach many more people and there are many reasons to fit every interest. Running a local road race? Use it to gather donations. Have a birthday, wedding or other special occasion in the near future? Use it to request donations instead of gifts. Want to set up a memorial for a lost loved one? GivingFirst.org allows users to post photos and videos to show why Foothills Animal Shelter is so important to them.
Visit GivingFirst.org’s fundraising page to set up your account. Once signed up, locate the profile for Foothills Animal Foundation and click the yellow “Fundraise Now” button. From there you can personalize your webpage by giving it a title, a monetary goal and timeline, an explanation about why you want to help Foothills and attached photos and videos of you and your pets.
After you have set up your fundraising page, email the link to everyone you know, post it to Facebook and send it out on Twitter. This will help you reach the widest audience possible and allow you to reach whatever goal you set for yourself. You also have the knowledge that your friends and family will be using GivingFirst.org’s secure online payment program. GivingFirst.org has also put together a competition to award $5,000 to the three non-profits that raise the most donations through their online fundraising pages.
Foothills Animal Shelter would also like to remind everyone that Tuesday, December 6, is the second annual Colorado Gives Day sponsored by Community First Foundation and FirstBank. Last year, Coloradans donated $8.7 million, which was distributed to 529 Colorado nonprofits including Foothills Animal Foundation. So set up your fundraising pages now and help Foothills Animal Shelter help animals in your community. GivingFirst.org is run by the Community First Foundation of Arvada.
