Ways To Donate

Cascades Humane Society is a not-for-profit, tax exempt public charity.

Because CHS does not receive funding from federal, state or county government, or other national or state organizations, we rely on the generosity of individuals, foundations, corporations and special events to support our services, programs, and mission…connecting animals in need with people who care.

The following are ways in which you can support CHS:

Tributes
Tributes are an excellent way to honor the people and animals that have made a difference in your life, while providing for the care of pets still waiting for loving homes. Your heart can rest easily knowing that you are giving twice – honoring your loved one and providing for helpless animals. Your tribute could remember a beloved family member or loyal companion animal, or celebrate an anniversary, the birth of a child, or any special occasion.

Garden Memorials:

  • Large Natural Rocks – For $5,000 these rocks, denoting strength and lasting beauty are available for permanent inscription
  • Benches – For $2,500 this attractive and permanent bench of stone and recycled plastic will be inscribed with your dedication and placed in either the Paw Playground or Gardens
  • Trees – For $1,000 this permanently inscribed dedication in granite will be placed by a lovely, shade tree in either the Paw Playground or the Gardens
  • Stepping Stones – For $500 a round granite stepping stone will be marked with your permanent inscription and placed in the Garden beside the walking path
  • Gazebo Stars – For $250 a lasting, gold star will be engraved and mounted on the gazebo ceiling

When your tribute is received, Cascades Humane Society will send you a tax-deductible receipt as well as notify the person you are honoring. The amount of your gift is not mentioned.

Corporate Sponsorships
Your staff can take pride in knowing that your company is sponsoring an entire year or a particular event that will help the animals. To find out about sponsorship opportunities, call Cascades Humane Society today at (517) 787-7387.

Kennel Sponsorships
Kennel Sponsorships provide animals with a source of comfort. A personalized plaque will hang on a pet’s kennel that can have your name or your company’s name and logo on it, or it can be in memory or honor of a special person or pet. You can sponsor a kennel for a year or permanently.

Here are the gifts you can choose from:

  • Permanent sponsorship: $5,000
  • Dog cage for one year: $1,000
  • Cat cage for one year: $500

Planned Giving
Planned Giving is simply a gift made through a will. If you already have a will, a simple addition is all that is needed to include a gift to Cascades Humane Society. You can leave a specific asset, or the remainder (or a portion of the remainder) of what is left after all other bequests are made.
 Gifts of life insurance, real estate, and stock are just some of the ways you can help the animals at Cascades Humane Society.

Recycle for the Animals
Recycle your used ink cartridges, laser cartridges and cell phones. Bring them to CHS and the animals receive money for each item you donate.
