Paint a Better Future Campaign Closed!
Humane Society Silicon Valley is pleased to announce that our Paint a Better Future campaign closed with great success on Dec 31st. We acheived our $55 million goal and thensome (stayed tuned as we count the final numbers!).
We began this campaign on July 1st, 2011 to invest in the future of our organization. The effort was ambitious and forward-looking. It was designed to sustain and increase our mission’s impact through progressive and scalable programs that we lead and deliver.
Our goal was to raise $55 million over six years. $41 million of this was for Innovation and Impact to support efforts to become the first shelter in the country to meet the Association of Shelter Veterinarians' Guidelines for Standards of Care in Animal Shelters, which we did in July 2017. This portion included supporting annual operations and our efforts to drive increasingly greater results within existing programs. $14 million of this was for Sustainable Growth that enables future program expansion through endowment by freeing up current funding for new uses, thereby reinforcing our financial sustainability. Specifically, campaign funds have been and will continue to be used to support the following:
- Adoption, Alternative Placement, and Pet Retention Programs
- Medical and Behavioral Care,
- Treatment, and Rehabilitation
- Regional Rescue, Foster Care, and Owner Surrender Programs
- Spay/Neuter Programs
- Educational Programs
Investing in bold and compelling ideas has laid the foundation for Humane Society Silicon Valley as an enduring institution built on sustainable philanthropic results. Individuals who care deeply about our mission are the lifegiving force of our history and our future. Donors are the cornerstones upon which these future accomplishments rest. Our organization thrives and grows when individuals are inspired and committed by the impact they make in supporting our work. Thank you for making all our success possible.
