On May 3 the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay will hold its third annual Give Day contest where nonprofits compete to see who can have the most donors and donations that day. There are also prizes for the most donations in a particular hour of the day.
Thanks to so many of our supporters who participated, last year Big Cat Rescue won $30,000, more than any other nonprofit! Of that $30,000, $10,000 was a prize for the most donations to an animal nonprofit sponsored by Caspers Company pictured here presenting their check.
Helping us win this prize money to support the cats is a great way to leverage your donation dollar.
On May 3 donations are accepted online by credit card for the contest. The minimum donation is $25.
If you prefer to donate by check, the check is still made out to Big Cat Rescue but must be dated May 3 and have “Give Day” in the memo section. We need to submit it the day before Give Day, i.e. on Monday, May 2, so need to have it in hand, or at least a scanned copy of it, by that day. If you mail checks, please send them to:
Big Cat Rescue
12802 Easy Street
Tampa, FL 33625-3702
If you are contemplating a donation this year, Give Day is a great time to do it. Please mark May 3, 2016 on your calendar, or sign up here and we will remind you, and help us win again this year!
December 3, 2013 is GIVING TUESDAY and Big Cat Rescue wants the world to know just how much you love giving to big cats! From now until midnight, December 3rd, please mark all of your social posts of big cat photos with the hashtags #GivingTuesday #UNselfie #BigCatRescue to share your love of saving big cats.
Making a year end gift to the cats in time for Christmas is a great way to take a bite out of your taxes while sharing the love with 100+ lions, tigers, leopards, bobcats, servals, caracals and more!
and you will get a pretty cool gift back from us when you do.
Any donation of $2.00 or more to Lesser Cats Need More will get you a coupon code good for 30% off your highest ticket purchase at BigCatRescue.biz. You will receive the code within 24 hours of your donation and can use it from 12/2/13 through 12/8/13.
When a raccoon began acting crazy and lunging at three cougars who were housed together, we feared that he was rabid. We sedated him for Animal Control, but there was a bit of a surprise ending to this story. Update: Tests confirmed the raccoon was rabid.
