There are a growing number of stores and organizations that will donate when you purchase! Here are a few:
and don't forget our Annual Plant and Yard Sale! (watch for posting)
If you know of others that we do not show up on, PLEASE let us know and we'll see if we can get listed.
Even if you are not able to adopt a cat, you can help a homeless cat by sponsoring his shelter and care while he waits to find a new home.
Petfinder.com and the Petfinder.com Foundation offer a program that allows you to sponsor a homeless pet that has touched your heart.
It costs an average of $180 to provide care for a pet while she waits for a home. You can help by clicking on the Sponsor Me button on the profile page of the pet that melts your heart on Petfinder.com! Your contribution of just $10 will help a cat to receive care until a new loving family comes along.
Contributions are collected and distributed to Friends of the Animals Foundation by the Petfinder.com Foundation and are tax deductible as allowed by law.
We received this information on Microsoft’s Giving Plan. You may want to see if your employer offers something similar.
We wanted to inform everyone of a unique opportunity provided by Microsoft to help non-profits like FAF (501c3 tax status). Basically their giving plan works like this:
A Microsoft employee identifies a 501c3 charity that they would like to donate to. For every dollar that any Microsoft employee donates to FAF (minimum $25 donation to be matched / documented on a quarterly basis), Microsoft will match that amount up to $12,000 per employee per year!
Also, for every documented hour of volunteer service a Microsoft employee donates to FAF, Microsoft will pay FAF $17/hr directly on a quarterly basis!
Obviously, this is an incredibly generous, employee driven, donation program. Surprisingly, many Microsoft employees are not even aware of it!
So please, if you know ANY Microsoft employees, try to cultivate a relationship with them and encourage them to check us out on our website. Even if they don't like cats (how could they not?!) they can always chat us up at the office and maybe get a co-worker interested.
