Host your own fundraiser

Animal Humane Society is grateful for the generosity and support of people and organizations throughout the Twin Cities and beyond. Often, people spend their own time, money, and effort organizing a fundraiser to benefit our shelters. These fundraisers vary in type and size, but include lemonade stands, car washes, golf tournaments, and more.

If you are interested in organizing and hosting your own event to benefit Animal Humane Society, please review our policies and procedures below, then check out our tips and downloads to help make your event a success.

Due to the number of requests we receive, Animal Humane Society cannot:
  • Send an AHS representative to participate in all events 
  • Distribute posters or literature for your event at our shelters
  • Supply adoptable animals for your event
  • Send emails to the AHS audience promoting your event  
  • Promote your event on social media channels
While we may be able to provide guidance for your event, we do not have the personnel to handle the organizational and administrative tasks associated with third-party events. Therefore, you are responsible for all details of the event including: underwriting all of the related costs; recruiting volunteers to help out at the event; creating flyers to publicize the event; and working at the actual event. Thank you for understanding!

Please send any donations you've collected, along with a donation deposit form, to:

Animal Humane Society
Attn: Donor Services, Third Party Fundraiser
845 Meadow Lane N.
Golden Valley, MN 55422
