Welcome to the Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes’ Monthly Donor Club!
This page is dedicated to answering your questions about becoming a Monthly Donor and to remind those of you who already are, of the perks you are entitled to.
First, we would like to say thank you! Thank you for visiting this page and for considering becoming a Monthly Donor if you are not already.
What is the Monthly Donor Club?
It’s just as it sounds. The Monthly Donor Club consists of people and businesses like you, who donate to HSKL on a monthly bases. Most donors have their donations deducted from their credit card or directly from their bank account. If you prefer, you can also write us monthly cheques. Monthly Donors are thanked with perks that other donors are not privileged to. If you’d like to register right now to become a member, click here!
Why should I join the Monthly Donor Club? Don’t you make enough money with fundraisers?
Our fundraisers are a top priority and they do raise much-needed funds, but they do not generate enough revenue to support the shelter on a daily basis. Fundraisers are critical to any not-for-profit, but fundraisers also cost money, staff time and sometimes do not bring in the funds as predicted. By becoming a Monthly Donor, you can help us better predict our month to month income and help us to react to crucial issues or unexpected costs as they arise, as well as, planning for future services and educational outreach.
What’s in it for me?
Other than that warm, happy feeling you get with the knowledge that you are assisting HSKL in helping homeless animals in the beautiful City of Kawartha Lakes, you will receive…
- Automatic e-subscription to our shelter newsletter, Woof Mews (yes, you may unsubscribe if you do not wish to receive this publication)
- One convenient annual receipt, which means less waste, and simplified record keeping for you and us!
- 15% off all in-stock HSKL branded clothing
- Up to 50% off adoption fees*
- Automatic Membership to HSKL (which means you have voting rights at our AGM)*
- Email announcing the date for our Annual General Meeting and voting privileges*
*Ask us about the fine print.
Can you break this down for me? How much per day will I be giving if I donate $25 per month of one year?
For a donation of $25 per month, it is only costing you .83 per day (for a month with 30 days) to help the animals in our care.
Just think, if you were to donate $50 a month, that is only $1.65 a day, but adds up to $600 a year! That means a huge difference for HSKL, but it is only costing you a cup of coffee a day!
Another way to look at it is, if you were to make a lump-sum donation of $100, you could turn that into a monthly donation of $8.33 per month! Now, that is cost effective! You’ll receive the benefits of being a Monthly Donor and you help us better predict our month-to-month income. It’s a win-win!
