Other Ways to Give

As a non-profit organization, we depend on your assistance to help us save lives. Monetary donations are always welcome, and volunteers are always needed! But if you can’t help in those ways, don’t despair. Here are just a few ideas:

Corporate Sponsorships – Event Sponsorship or Name Subsidy

Do you own a business and you’re looking for a way to support positive social change while gaining exposure to passionate individuals in our community? Or do you work for a local company that wants to expand their giving to great causes? Sponsor an outreach event or even a local fundraiser. Want to see what we do? Check out our Events Calendar, we welcome you to jump right in and support one of our events!

Some businesses are more comfortable with establishing a subsidy account to assist clients of the Iowa Humane Alliance Regional Spay/Neuter Clinic. This fund could be specifically to help low income families with the cost of spaying/neutering a pet or benefit individuals caring for community cats. With a monetary donation of $1,000 or more, we would establish a subsidy program in your company’s name and direct those funds to the clients you choose to help.

Iowa Humane Alliance offers several opportunities for large or small businesses to contribute and we work hard to acknowledge your efforts in order to bring your company recognition. If you’d like to discuss any of these opportunities, or would like more information, please email Kathleen@iowahumanealliance.org.

In-Kind Donations

Businesses and individuals can contribute by donating office supplies and furniture, medical supplies and equipment, vehicles, items for our event auctions, or items from our wish lists. Please contact us for more information.

Community Fundraising

Individuals, businesses, and community organizations often ask if they can hold fundraising events on our behalf. Some of the events held in the past include garage sales, music events, bake sales, raffles and auctions, golf tournaments, and food and supply drives. We appreciate and welcome these efforts!

We have put together a Community Fundraising Toolkit to assist you in your efforts. It can be downloaded here. Please read over the guidelines, suggestions and helpful hints and  contact us  as early as possible to let us know about your plans and how we can help.

Work Place Giving and Matching Donations

Workplace giving benefits businesses, employees, and the entire community. It offers an opportunity for you to support the causes that are dear to your heart and make an impact. Ask your employer about workplace giving incentives and matching contribution programs.
