Click to donate to The Extraordinary Give: Giving EXTRA to help great dogs in need!
Friday, Nov. 22nd 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.
(You will be taken outside the DVGRR website and to the official DVGRR ExtraGIVE page!
Watch our staff videos and our DVGRR adopter videos below to hear why Giving EXTRA is so important!
We’re gearing up again for the annual Extraordinary Give event. It’s Lancaster 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!
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.
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.”
~ Sharon J.
And to Teddy…
Thanks so very much to DVGRR for rescuing me from the barn and to my loving parents who have cared for me through my life-long health issues. Miss Marie said it was a miracle to see me at the ribbon cutting, and I am looking forward to my 7th birthday on Christmas!
