Sunday we expressed a desire for more fosters. Yesterday we highlighted the need for more volunteers. In the last of our three-part series, we highlight Animal Ark’s #1 goal for 2020: More sustaining members. With the help of supporters like you, we can achieve our ambitious goals in 2020 and beyond! On behalf of everyone at Animal Ark, we wish you and your pets a very happy and healthy New Year.
Please note that we’re closed New Year’s Eve and New Year’s day, but our volunteers are welcome (and encouraged) to drop by and wish a Happy New Year in-person to our residents.
Behind every successful non-profit organization is a solid donor base. Your generosity funds our programs, pays our staff, and keeps our lights on. Animal Ark’s donors are also members who have a voice in how we’re governed.
Sustaining Members are friends who donate a consistent amount each month automatically via PayPal or credit/debit card. Sustaining memberships allow Animal Ark to plan ahead for budgeting purposes. (Memberships can also be changed or canceled at any time.)
Contributing to Animal Ark is similar to volunteering: Just as we mentioned yesterday how “merely” spending an hour each week volunteering at Animal Ark is actually a godsend for our staff and residents, “merely” donating $5 per month can go a long way toward helping us achieve our mission. To give you an idea what we mean, think of it this way. Animal Ark’s Facebook page has 18,000 followers. Just imagine if each of those followers became Sustaining Members “merely” contributing $5 per month. That’s $90,000 per month, over one million dollars per year! There’s no end to the good we could do for animals in need with that kind of financial support.
Animal Ark believes so strongly in Sustaining Memberships that all members of our Board of Directors are sustaining members. Any amount you could spare monthly to fund Animal Ark’s mission would be greatly appreciated, and it’s tax deductible. Please answer Animal Ark’s call and become a Sustaining Member today. Our staff, Board, volunteers and—most importantly—our animals thank you!
And speaking of our animals, here are a few of our residents who seek forever homes. We encourage you to drop by and meet them and perhaps open your home to them in 2020!
