Cat Depot once again is participating in the 36-Hour Giving Challenge with a goal of raising $100,000 for homeless, abandoned and injured cats and kittens! The Challenge starts at 7 a.m. sharp on Tuesday, March 5, and ends at 7 p.m. on March 6.
We are pleased to announce that several Cat Depot donors have generously agreed to match donation up to $10,000. This match is IN ADDITION to the matching funds available from participating foundations of the 36-Hour Giving Challenge.
The Challenge matching funds are for donations up to $1,000 per unique donor for new and increased gifts until funding is exhausted. (A unique donor is an individual name and credit card. Husbands, wives, or family members, can each make a donation, as long as the donation is made in each name and a separate credit card.)
After matching funds are depleted, your donation will help us earn the hourly bonuses and incentive grants.
