The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) announced a matching gift challenge in their efforts to raise money for a new animal shelter. An anonymous donor is going to match all monetary donations and pledges dollar-for-dollar up to $500,000 made through October 31, 2019.
So far in their fundraising efforts, WHS have raised $4.9 million. With a project goal of securing a total of $5.9 million, there is only $1 million left to go. As such, the gracious anonymous donor has committed to this matching gift challenge.
Read more about the project.
WHS has set its sights on a new location at the northeast corner of 16th and 90th street in Mount Pleasant, for which they have purchased land in 2016. Some of the features at the new animal shelter will include expanded animal housing, community space for training, youth programs, and community events, and a modern veterinary clinic for shelter animals.
“We need to get the animals out of our Chicory Road facility,” said Anne Reed, President, and CEO of WHS. “The building is too small and simply inadequate for the needs of both the animals and people we serve in Racine County.”
Reed went on to say, “We are grateful for the tremendous support of this project, and the finish line is now in sight. But we need help to close the campaign. Whether you can donate $20 or $20,000, every gift will be doubled, making an even bigger impact.”
