Monthly Giving: Easier and Greener

“Each year pets pass through our shelter who need us to go a little further beyond basic vaccinations, food, water, and a safe place to stay. Humane League supporters like you know that there is an ongoing need for funds to make this care possible.” Megan Gallagher, Vice President of Development and Outreach

We are excited to introduce a new program which will make donating to the Humane League easier and “greener” for our dedicated supporters. The Paws for a Cause Monthly Giving program allows donors to easily make their gift to the Humane League of Lancaster County in regular monthly installments from a credit card or checking/savings account. Your monthly donation of $15 or more can make all the difference!

How does it help the animals?

Monthly contributions provide the Humane League of Lancaster County with an on-going, reliable source of funding. Gifts made through this program reduce our administrative costs and allow more of each gift to be used immediately to care for the homeless animals at the shelter. With monthly giving we can be assured of having the money we will need to care for the animals, enabling us to better budget for their needs. Monthly gifts are also “greener” by cutting down on paper and gas and emissions produced by mailings.

Paws for a Cause gifts mean less paperwork and postage, reducing our expenses and increasing our efficiency. That means more of your gift goes to caring for animals and supporting our innovative programs which save more lives through prevention.

How does it help you?

Enrolling in the program means you won’t have to worry about writing and sending a check. If you choose to allow deductions to continue from year to year, you will be counted among the Humane League of Lancaster’s most loyal and valued donors and be recognized for your participation in this program in our Annual Report

In addition, you will receive fewer mailings from our organization, making our program even more eco-friendly. You will still receive invitations to special events, like our Tailwagger’s Trot and Wags and Whiskers, but can select to receive our newsletter PawPrints electronically. This saves paper and postage, allowing even more of your donation to be spent on the animals!

How does it work?

You determine the amount of your monthly gift and provide payment details. We charge your credit card each month. Each January, we will send you an annual giving statement by mail, for your tax purposes. Through the Paws for a Cause program your membership with the Humane League of Lancaster County renews automatically each year.
