A New fundraising program
In January 2011 Blanket launched a new type of partnership initiative to help raise funds for animal-related non-profit organizations. This program is called ‘FundsForever’ and is designed to allow companies, retailers and not-for-profits to create an on-going stream of funds for selected animal welfare organizations.
Currently, a portion of money from the sales of our blanket ID tags and associated memberships is passed to our own ‘Blanket Fund for Animals’. These funds are distributed to organizations that help sick, injured, abandoned and homeless animals. It’s the core of what we do and more than 15% of our profits are passed to this fund. We make a determined effort to make these funds as effective as possible.
Over our last year of operation we have come to realize that our members have a keener understanding of their local animal welfare organizations, their work in the community and their funding needs. While we do try to distribute funds based on our members’ addresses, it’s become impossible for us to keep up to date with a growing list of charities and ever changing levels of need.
The FundsForever Program
Under this program, any company, retailer or organization can have their own custom-designed blanket ID tag produced. The tags generate a respectable margin for the seller, and in addition the charitable portion of the funds raised from memberships will forever be passed back to their selected non-profit organization.
As an example, Sniff Dog Hotel, (http://www.sniffdoghotel.com) has created their very own blanket ID tag. This fabulous dog resort has chosen the charity ‘Fences for Fido’,(http://www.fencesforfido.org/) an all-volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to improving the welfare and quality of life for dogs living outdoors, to be the beneficiary for funds raised from sales of this tag and on-going memberships.
We are also proud to have Best Friends Animal Society as a member of this program (http://www.bestfriends.org). We love their work in leading the no-kill movement and we are honored to be able to help.
