Giving Tuesday is set aside as a day of giving to bring people together to improve their communities by promoting and supporting the causes they believe in. Created in 2012, it’s the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, after the shopping days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday and has evolved into a movement that encourages and inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, work together, and celebrate generosity.
Whether it’s a donation, some of your time, the power of your voice in your local community, helping a neighbor or stranger, showing up for an issue you care about, or sharing some of what you have to those who need help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give. Join the movement and give.
The Animal Shelter Foundation is launching our annual #ASFGivingTuesday Campaign and we are asking leaders like you to inspire our community to help shelter animals and animals in need in the Tallahassee area, by becoming a Matching Donor.
Last year, because of Matching Donors, our community was inspired to give, knowing their donation would be doubled, for a total giving of $52,700.00! Many donated because of the generosity shown by individuals and businesses who gave leadership donations during the matching portion of the campaign.
ASF is committed to continue to help animals and families caring for pets in our community. We have added programs in partnership with Tallahassee Animal Services (animal shelter) to help keep people and pets together. During the COVID 19 Pandemic ASF provided:
- extra funding for vet care and heartworm help while some shelter vet services were put on hold
- expanded the HOPES program offering food and needed items to keep pets in homes
- assisted with dog walking at the shelter
- provided cat food for caregivers caring for community cats
- offered virtual/online doggie manners classes
- donated to the community pet food pantry
ASF is extremely excited to have opened Tally Spay in September 2021, a new low cost spay/neuter clinic which will help reduce our communities’ overpopulation of unwanted animals, reduce intakes at local animal shelters and help families in need care for their pets.
If you can donate one of the amounts below, others in our community will be inspired to give, knowing their donation has been matched.
$1,000 – $2,499
$500 – $999
$250 – $499
You can give now, with a check (please note that it is a Matching Donation for the Giving Tuesday Campaign) to the Animal Shelter Foundation, P.O. Box 13858, Tallahassee, FL. 32317 or through our website, animalshelterfoundation.org.
Matching gifts will be received until Nov. 12, 2021. Our Giving Tuesday Community Drive will begin on Nov. 16th and continue through Giving Tuesday, Nov. 30, 2021.
