Students support the Georgia SPCA

Sponsorship Opportunities

The Georgia SPCA depends on the community and its businesses to support its activities.  This support comes from different sorts of organizations - from schools & churches, from local and national businesses and also from concerned individuals.  Sponsorship can take many forms -- from providing the Georgia SPCA with discounts on items we purchase, to direct gifts.  From assuming responsibility for the health of a specific animal to sponsorship of an entire "cat room."  

Throughout the year, we host several events to raise funds for the animals in our care. Each event provides sponsorship opportunities that result in visibility within the community, recognition on all event collateral pieces, and media exposure. Sponsorship options include direct funding of the event as well as (in some instances) supporting us by setting up vendor booths to make the public aware of your support for the Georgia SPCA.  We would be happy to discuss the ability to create greater benefit for your company before and during any of our events through online or sales promotions, hospitality options and distribution of promotional materials.

We tailor our sponsorship packages to align this investment with your company's goals. To discuss any opportunities that interest you, please contact Jane Stewart, at 678-765-2726 or contact us and select "sponsorship question" as the category. These events draw from a broad community as well as from local celebrities.  

A key thing to bear in mind is that the Georgia SPCA spends very little money on fundraising activities. We have felt that program-based spending is critical. In 2011, for example, 88% of all funds coming into the organization were spent on program-related expenses including adoptions, spay/neuter, and pet wellness.

Here are some sponsorship strategies that might work for you or your organization:

  • Work Place Giving - Many businesses, corporations, and government agencies have workplace campaigns through which an employee may contribute to the charity of their choice. The Georgia SPCA can be included as a recipient in many of these plans. Please consider designating your gift to the Georgia SPCA through your workplace program. If the Georgia SPCA is not already a designated charity, please inquire if we may be added.
  • Matching Gift - Your employer may have a matching gift program. In this manner, any gift you give in support of the animals and the Georgia SPCA can be matched with a like or greater gift by your company. You can find out more about matching gifts by speaking with the human resources department at your place of employment.
  • Special Events - We host special events throughout the year which help raise money for the Georgia SPCA. These events include "You Ain't Nothin' But A Pound Dog," our major annual fundraiser at the Gwinnett Center, and our annual Run for the Rescues 5k and Fun Run at Suwanee Town Center. Please check the calendar for the next upcoming event.
  • Sponsor a Georgia SPCA Program or Pet - We are actively looking for support for low-cost vaccination clinics, spay/neuter, and community education projects to promote responsible pet ownership.  
  • Host an Adoption Event/Donation Drive - if your workplace allows animals, we can bring cats and dogs to an adoption event for your employees.  Here's how Cadillac Jack helps the homeless pets at Georgia SPCA.
