Third Party Fundraisers: Whether it be a bake sale, home goods party, Dress Down Day, coin drop, penny war, etc., we welcome community members of all ages raising money on our behalf! We call this a "third party fundraiser" and ask that you do the following before launching your event:
- Contact the shelter’s development director, Hannah Manley, and let her know what you have planned to ensure that it complements our fundraising program.
- Once we approve your fundraiser, you will have our blessing to use Homeward Bound’s name and logo in your promotions and marketing for this particular fundraiser.
- After the event, let Hannah know how you did, send along a photo for publicity on the shelter’s social media, and set up a time for a photo opportunity and check acceptance at the shelter if you wish. (If not, you may mail a check made payable to Homeward Bound to 236 Boardman Street, Middlebury, VT 05753. Please include a note indicating what fundraiser brought in the money).
