FUNDRAISING GUIDE

Create a Canine Crew!

Encourage your friends, families, and coworkers to join your team and raise funds for the 2018 Pup Strut to benefit Canine Assisted Therapy. Start a competition with your friends or other canine crews. 

Personal Pages

Each paw-ticipant gets their own personal fundraising page. Be sure to include pictures of your four legged friends and include stories about why this is important to you.

Sending emails from your personal fundraising page makes it easy to raise awareness and funds for your team.

Employers

Remember submit your forms if your employer matches charitable contributions. Ask your employer to help you raise money by having “dress down” days. Or ask them to become a sponsor of this event.

Remember Therapy Dogs Provide Comfort to All

Almost everyone knows a person that can benefit by the unconditional love of a therapy dog, so don’t be afraid to ask people to help you meet your fundraising goal.

Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Let your friends know you’re raising money for the 2018 Pup Strut to benefit Canine Assisted Therapy and ask them to donate.
