Hosting Fundraisers

Planning fundraisers are a great way for you to help the animals at the Jacksonville Humane Society. No matter how large or small, every penny makes a difference in the lives of pets and the people who love them in our community.

Do you want to host a fundraiser? It’s easy!

  • Choose a fundraising activity you would like coordinate. You can find some great ideas on our Pinterest board. 
  • Pick a date and time that you will hold your fundraiser.
  • Submit the Third-Party Contract to JHS via email:
  • Once we receive the contract and approve your event, JHS will send you the logo.
  • Once approved, the paw is in your court. Have fun and know that your hard work is making a difference in the lives of dogs and cats in your community.

Rules & Guidelines

The third-party event hosts are responsible for all aspects of the event, including organizing, funding, planning, promoting, managing and staffing. JHS 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 JHS 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 JHS name and logo. JHS 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 JHS. It is important that the shelter name and logo be used correctly and spelled properly. Always refer to the organization as the Jacksonville 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.
