Kicking off Annual Idaho Gives Fundraiser

We’d like to tell you about a fun way you can help Mountain Humane during “Idaho Gives”, the annual statewide online fundraising effort that starts on April 23.  Idaho Gives is usually a one-day giving day, but this year, due to the COVID pandemic – Idaho Gives will run for two weeks through May 7th. The event includes prizes given over the two weeks and that’s where you come in. With your help Mountain Humane win cash prizes! Here are a few of the ways you can help. 

Share your story: A handful of the prizes we can win are based on story-telling! Why is Mountain Humane important to you? Write up a short story (4 to 5 sentences) and share it with us at [email protected] or share it on your social media channels with these hashtags and handles #idahogives #idahogives2020 #mountainhumane @idahogives @mountainhumane. Bonus points if you share a photo with the Idaho Gives logo! (You can download and print it here: https://s3.amazonaws.com/gg-day-of-giving/idaho2020/downloads/official.jpg)

Make a donation:  The nice thing about Idaho Gives is that $10 means just as much as $100 because it’s the number of donations that really counts most! The leaderboards for Idaho Gives show number of donations vs. amount. That means if you give $10, and encourage three of your friends to donate $10, we’ll go up 4 points on the leaderboards!!

Become a fundraiser: Check out the Mountain Humane Idaho Gives Fundraising page (click here: https://www.idahogives.org/organizations/mountainhumane). On the right side of the page (next to the donate button) you’ll see a button that says FUNDRAISE. Click that button. From there you’ll be prompted to set up your own account and create a fundraising page that tells YOUR story of why you want to help Mountain Humane raise money. Share your fundraising page on any of your social media channels between now & May 7th. Try encouraging friends to share photos of their adopted pets, ask for small donations, or see if you can get more folks to share your page.

Need help setting up your fundraising page? We’re here for you! Send an e-mail to [email protected] & we’ll work together to get you all set up!
