Give Back

Are you looking for a way to give back to the animals at OK Humane through your restaurant, employee giving program or your next birthday? We are so grateful you thought of OK Humane!

Due to the number of request we receive and our limited resources, as a non-profit, we do not have the personnel to directly handle the organizational tasks associated with third-party fundraisers. You will be responsible for all details of the fundraiser including underwriting all costs, staffing, publicity, execution, and logistics.

However, we are eager to help empower you as you think through the best options for your next fundraiser.

STEP 1: Contact Us for Event Approval

Please send us an email with a detailed description of your fundraiser or event. Once your event is approved we ask that you help ensure that the Oklahoma Humane Society’s name, image, and reputation are properly represented by adhering to the following guidelines:

  • The fundraiser must be promoted in a manner to avoid statements or the appearance of OK Humane’s endorsement.
  • The name and logo must be used in accordance with OK Humane’s graphic standards. All promotional materials must clearly state the percentage of proceeds that will benefit OK Humane.
  • Fundraiser organizers must obtain their own liability insurance to cover the event. OK Humane is not financially liable for the promotion and/or staging of third-party events.
  • Under no circumstances should third-party event revenue and expenses flow through OK Humane books. Only the final net proceeds from the event are to be processed by OK Humane.
  • Third-party fundraisers cannot be held at any OK Humane location.

STEP 2: Plan & Market Your Event

  • Seek the help of friends and family. Getting help with an event will help you brainstorm creative ideas, divide the work and have more fun.
  • Crunch the numbers. In the early stages of planning, you should identify your expenses and potential sources of income and donations. You should also set a fundraising goal for your event.
  • Keep expenses low. Increase the amount of money you raise by limiting the amount of money you spend. Keep your expenses low by asking people to donate or discount items such as venue rental fees, entertainment, decorations, food and beverages. Ask for donations for auction items and raffle prizes.
  • Make a list, check it twice. Who will want to be involved in your event? Identify who those people are, how you want to get them involved, how you will ask them and if they will be available when you need them.
  • Shout it from the rooftops. Much of your success will depend on how well you spread the word about your event and the number of people you invite. How do you plan to let people know about your event? The more ways you can get the word out, the better.
  • Incorporate other ways to raise money or collect items. Think about creative ways to raise funds or collect times — live or silent auctions, raffles, donation drive are just some examples of ways you can supply our organizations with our greatest needs.
  • Saying thank you is important!  Send letters to all of the supporters and volunteers that helped make your event a success. You will probably want their help again next year!
  • Keep lists up-to-date. Having a list of your event contacts makes future planning much easier. Make sure all contact lists always have the most up-to-date information (email, addresses and phone)

STEP 3: Make donation

Please send any donations you’ve collected to Oklahoma Humane Society, P.O. Box 18471, Oklahoma City, OK 73154. Thank you so much for your support! Please contact us with any questions at 405-286-1229 x3.
