Host a Third Party Event

Hosting a third-party event is a fantastic way to support Calgary Humane Society and make a positive impact on animal welfare. By organizing your own event, you can raise funds and awareness for our cause. Whether it’s a charity walk, bake sale, online fundraising campaign, or any creative idea you have, your efforts will help us continue our vital work in rescuing, rehabilitating, and finding forever homes for animals in need.

To get started, reach out to inform us about your intention to host a third-party event. We can provide you with resources, support, and guidelines to ensure your event is successful. Additionally, we can assist in promoting your event through our website, social media platforms, and other communication channels.

Remember to set clear goals, create a budget, and develop a marketing plan to maximize the impact of your event. Engage your friends, family, and community by sharing the purpose and importance of supporting animal welfare. Consider collaborating with local businesses, organizations, and sponsors to garner additional support and donations.

Throughout the planning process, stay in touch to keep us informed about the progress of your event. After the event, don’t forget to share the results and the amount raised. We greatly appreciate your effort and generosity, and your support will directly benefit the animals in our care.

Together, let’s create a memorable and impactful event that will make a difference in the lives of animals and contribute to a more compassionate community.
