Donations make what we do possible

Nine Lives Foundation is a community based 501c3 non-profit organization. We do not receive funding from any local, state or government agenices so we rely solely on private donations of cash and goods, adoption fees and money generated from our low cost spay/neuter and vaccination clinics. 

 

There are so many ways that our supporters can contribute to keep our shelter operating. All donations no matter how large or small directly benefit the cats and kittens in our care.  Donations make all that we do possible!

Recurring Monthly Donations

The Nine Lives Foundation appreciates all contributions, small and large, as they enable us to continue our mission of saving the lives of thousands of cats and kittens.  Every day we face the challenge of meeting the daily shelter operation expenses as well as supporting the cats in need of serious medical attention. Recurring monthly contributions make what we do possible.

 

Recurring monthly donations may be made by mailing personal check directly to Nine Lives or by setting up a bill pay account through your financial institution to ensure that we receive 100% of your donation.

 

Secure on-line donations via your bank account or credit card can also be set up through Network for Good or PayPal.

Corporate Matching

Matching Gifts are an easy way to double or even triple your donation to the Nine Lives Foundation. Many companies support employee philanthropy by offering matching gift programs. By taking advantage of your corporate matching gift program, you can maximize the value of your gift at no additional cost.

Creating an online Facebook fundraiser is an easy and effective way to raise money for the Nine Lives Foundation.  This is a popular way to celebrate important life milestones like a birthday or anniversary, but a fundraiser can be created at any time, for any reason.  Go to https://www.facebook.com/fundraisers or click on “Fundraising” in the left column on the home screen.  Currently, Facebook does not charge a fee to process a donation, so 100% of all amounts raised go to Nine Lives.

Have your own fundraiser or drive to collect items from Nine Lives' Wishlist.  This can be a great service opportunity for a youth group, or individuals.  Lemonade stands, craft booths, etc. can all be a great way to raise money for our mission to save lives!
