Third-Party Event Fundraising

Current events benefiting KHS:

 

                                                        Faces for Foster
Kitsap Humane Society foster parent Destiny Kelley is currently selling her personalized clay pet faces with all proceeds going toward caring for KHS foster animals. All additional funds will be donated to KHS’ Foster Program. The clay faces are modeled after photos of people’s pets. They make excellent gifts for animal lovers or wonderful memorials for pets that have crossed The Rainbow Bridge. Purchases can also be made in the form of gift certificates. Finished faces are a little less than 1 inch in diameter and can be finished with a magnet, pendant bail, lapel pin or push pin backing. These have a suggested donation of $30. Also available are polymer clay fridge magnets with any breed’s silhouette. These are 1 ½ inches and have a suggested donation of $15. 

To contact Destiny, send an e-mail with a photo of the pet’s face with your shipping address to facesforfoster@outlook.com and Destiny will reply with your total and her PayPal information.

Fred Meyer Community Rewards Program

Kitsap Humane Society is now part of Fred Meyer’s Community Rewards program. The process is simple. Fred Meyer is donating $2.5 million per year to non-profits in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington, based on where their customers tell them to give.

Here’s how the program works:

1. Sign up for the Community Rewards program by linking your Fred Meyer Rewards Card to KHS at www.fredmeyer.com/communityrewards. You can search for us by our name or by our non-profit number 85261!

2. Then, every time you shop and use your Rewards Card, you are helping Kitsap Humane Society earn a donation!

3. You still earn your Rewards Points, Fuel Points, and Rebates, just as you do today.

4. If you do not have a Rewards Card, they are available at the Customer Service desk of any Fred Meyer store.

5. For more information, please visit www.fredmeyer.com/communityrewards. 


 

 

 

Third-Party Event is any fundraising activity by a non-affiliated group or individual where the Kitsap Humane Society has no fiduciary responsibility and little or no staff involvement. (Examples include donation drives, fundraising parties and bake sales.) The path to launching a third-party event typically begins with an idea and plan of action that is presented to the Kitsap Humane Society. Event organizers must obtain their own liability insurance to cover the event.

The time and effort that you put into such event will benefit the thousands of animals we care for each year at the Kitsap Humane Society. No matter how large or small, your contribution will make a big difference in the lives of our animals.

Rules & Guidelines

The third-party event hosts are responsible for all aspects of the event, including organizing, funding, planning, promoting, managing and staffing. KHS is unable to provide assistance with any of these aspects. (For instance, we cannot pay for any event-related costs, provide mailing lists, send e-mail blasts or direct mail promoting the event, ensure attendance, etc.) Requests for KHS staff, volunteers and/or animals to attend your event are handled on a case-by case basis, but cannot be guaranteed.

Upon approval, you may, in most instances, use the KHS name and logo. KHS must pre-approve all flyers, press releases, publications and any other event promotional materials. All materials must clearly indicate that the event is not sponsored by KHS. It is important that the shelter name and logo be used correctly and spelled properly. Always refer to the organization as the Kitsap Humane Society (not simply the Humane Society). The logo may be reproduced in all black or in all white (on a black or equally dark background.) For color print jobs the color logo should be used.

2. Set the date and location.

Schedule your event for a day, time and location that provides you with plenty of time to plan and promote it properly. Before confirming the date, check with KHS to make sure it doesn't conflict with another event. 

3. Set fundraising goals and a budget.

Remember, the lower your costs to produce the event, the higher your contribution will be. 

4. Submit a Third Party Events Contract to the Kitsap Humane Society.

(Download the THIRD-PARTY CONTRACT - Fillable Word Doc or PDF) An events coordinator will contact you to review any issues or concerns and will provide you with guidance and feedback on your proposed plan. Determine legal, insurance, liability, permit and safety issues you may need to address prior to submitting your form. 

5. Create a “Day of Event” agenda and checklist. 

6. Develop a publicity/promotion plan.

Flyers, posters and other promotional materials will help generate awareness and excitement about your event. 

7. Have the event!

With proper planning, you can have a fun and successful event. Once your event is over, just submit the proceeds to the Kitsap Humane Society and start planning your next event. (Oh, and don't forget to take pictures!)
