It’s here: Give to the Max Day 2020!

“It’s Give to the Max Day!”

2020 has been described in terms unrepeatable on a family-oriented website. However, here’s a chance to see the good in life at the tail end of an awful year: It’s GIVE TO THE MAX DAY!

Give to the Max Day is Animal Ark’s biggest fundraising opportunity of the year. While Nov. 19 is technically “the big day,” donations made Nov. 1-19 count toward our goal. This year we’ve set a lofty goal of $5o,000 with proceeds going toward our Special Need Fund. Our No-kill mission means we take in animals other shelters might deny. These animals frequently present any number of challenges, behavioral and physical. Animal Ark dedicates the time and resources necessary to prepare these special creatures for loving, forever homes.

Your donations go to help dogs like Bonnie and Latte, pictured below and featured in a recent blog post. These two came from challenging backgrounds, but thanks to the tireless efforts of our staff and volunteers, they’re slowly coming around. Your donations are what ensure Animal Ark has the resources necessary to help dogs like Bonnie and Latte.

In addition to donating via our GiveMN website, you can also become a Matching Donor. As a Matching Donor, we will pool your donation with those from all our other friends and post the total on our page. On Give to the Max Day (Nov. 19), all donations will be matched-dollar-for-dollar up to the total. When the total is reached, you donate the amount you pledged.

We know from experience that Matching Grants work! Donors love to double the impact of their donations whenever they can, and many look for opportunities to do so. Maybe you’re one of them. If so, consider becoming a Matching Donor. Doing so can inspire others to step up, and the winners will be the dogs and cats in our care.

If you are currently a Sustaining donor, consider becoming a Matching donor during our Give to the Max campaign!
