Host a Fundraiser

Hosting your own fundraiser is a fun way to raise money for Humane Action Pittsburgh. These fundraisers vary in type and size, but can include anything from lemonade stands, car washes, birthday parties, bake sales, golf tournaments, and more!

Tips on fundraising:

  • Lead the way. Start by making a gift of your own and ask your friends and family to match your donation.
  • Enlist your friends, family, and coworkers to spread the word.
  • Birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and special occasions are a wonderful time to share your love with Humane Action Pittsburgh to celebrate your special day.
  • Just ask! Most people are more than willing to help support causes that are being endorsed by peers.
  • Remember any events must align with HAPs policies and values, e.g. no animal products, mindfulness of waste and single use plastic, etc.
