Below is some simple fundraising ideas that will make a difference for our shelter paws!

Create your own fundraiser, like a bake sale, lemonade stand, etc. Are you competitive and like to play sports? Plan a 3-on-3 tournament!  If you have fun, the donations will follow.

Host A Donation Drive
The most helpful group volunteer project are groups that are willing to hold donation drives! LCAS is fully supported by the community and fund our lifesaving work with both in-kind donations and monetary donations. For a full list of items that we are always in need of, please refer to our Wish List, which also includes a link to our Amazon Wish List! Our shelter is always in need of supplies ranging from pet care products to office and cleaning supplies!

Donate Your Birthday or Anniversary
Make your big day about something bigger than yourself. This birthday, ask for gifts that give back. Now that’s something to celebrate.

Fitness Fundraiser
Run, dance, bike, swim and raise funds for LCAS. Sign up for a race in your community, or create your own event like a fitness fundraiser. Or, create some competition with a biking challenge or swim-a-thon.

Create and Sell Something
Are you good at baking? Have a bake sale! Do you have extra things you want to sell? Have a fundraising garage sale! Make and sell dog treats if you want to help puppies have yummy treats. Do you want to have a good old-fashioned lemonade or kool-aid stand for a fundraiser? Ideas for fundraisers with food include having a chili or soup cook-off for donations per entry or donations for voting. Another idea is a taco or nacho bar with free-will donation.

Office Fundraisers
Besides Penny Wars, you could also have office fundraisers such as a loose change jar, holiday party, or Casual Friday/Jeans Day in which people donate to wear jeans. 

Coffee Fund to Contribution
Encourage friends, family or fellow coworkers to give up a daily luxury for a certain amount of time. Example: Give up coffee or soda once a week for a month, at $5 a week. That is a $20 contribution! Each little bit helps!

Miscellaneous Fundraisers
Other ideas include having a holiday party, silent auction, car wash, benefit concert or comedy show, or gift wrapping stations. Be creative! We are always looking for new, successful, fun ideas to share. 

Set a fundraising goal. Set a fundraising goal for yourself.  A goal is an important tool to help your supporters rally around your cause, and it will help keep you focused as you begin putting your fundraising plan in action.

**REMEMBER – it doesn’t matter how much money you raise. Your efforts, big or small, will make a difference. But, be ambitious – you’ll be surprised at how easy it is!

When you complete your fundraiser, please bring your donations to the Lewis Clark Animal Shelter during our shelter's open hours.

We would love to host your group for a tour of the shelter and thank you in person for your amazing efforts when you come up to the shelter.
