Why Give EXTRA? “We give extra because we see the medical needs some of the dogs have when they arrive.” ~ Kathy
We’re gearing up again for the annual Extraordinary Give event. It’sLancaster County Community Foundation’s 24-hour online philanthropy event, and everyone who gives EXTRA that day helps make an extraordinary difference in the lives of the dogs that come through our doors!
“Why I Give EXTRA: Because as a volunteer at DVGRR for 11 years, I have seen the rescue grow and evolve into a very safe and caring environment for dogs that are given up or have had a very difficult life. It’s just another chance for these dogs to a have good and fun life.” ~ Bill A.
By giving extra, you can help us earn more of the monies from the “stretch pool.” Currently, the stretch pool is at least $500,000 and is divvied up based on the percentage of donations. For example, if DVGRR raises two percent of the total donations that day, we’ll receive two percent of the stretch pool… approximately $10,000 in addition to the direct donations we receive that day! Plus, there’s $50,000 in prizes that are awarded throughout the day, including Golden Tickets during various time slots over the 24 hours that randomly boost a donation by $1,000.
“I give EXTRA to a wonderful rescue – DVGRR. They do an extraordinary job caring for less fortunate dogs and finding them their adoptive homes.” ~ Renee H.
DVGRR has historically done very well during this event, always finishing near the top of the leaderboard. During the Extraordinary Give, donors will also be given the opportunity to cover the transaction fee, so more dollars come back to DVGRR. As in the past, donations (including covered transaction fees) may qualify for a federal tax deduction to the extent allowed.
We’re once again looking for corporate sponsors that might be interested in offering a matching campaign for that day. For a match of $1,000 or more, we’ll promote your company and information on our website, Extraordinary Give profile page, Facebook page, and in our weekly email blasts. (Deadline for corporate sponsorships is Oct. 25th. Contact Inza [email@example.com or 717-484-4799] for details.)
Special Note to Recurring Donors: If you would like your regular monthly contribution for November to be applied during the Extraordinary Give event, we must receive explicit permission from you. Please visit: www.dvgrr.org/eg-permission to complete the online permission form.
Receipts for Extraordinary Give donations will come from the Lancaster County Community Foundation, but rest assured, every dollar donated (plus stretch pool money and prizes) will come to DVGRR. If you have any questions about donating or applying your membership during the Extraordinary Give, please contact Karen (firstname.lastname@example.org or 717-484-4799).
“I give EXTRA to DVGRR because there is not a better rescue in the country, in my opinion. The dedication of this rescue and its employees and volunteers to the dogs that are lovingly in their care until placed in their adoptive homes is superior. The best interest of the dogs is always their number one priority.”
