SUPPORTUS

Metro East Humane Society can exist only through the generous contributions of people like you. There are many ways you can help us. Click a button below to learn more. 

One-Time Giving

Give once to help us continue doing the work.

Monthly Giving

Join our Constant Companion Program of monthly giving provides reliable revenue for recurring expenses (think utilities, payroll for highly qualified caregivers, animal-related expenses like medical supplies, special diets, etc.) that are often not covered by grants or restricted donations.

Honor Someone

Giving a gift to honor someone you love, celebrate a loved one's birthday, or commemorate a beloved pet is a one way to give to MEHS. 

 

All honorees will receive a card from MEHS noting the gift but not including the amount. Email us with your honorees information.

 

Host a

Fundraiser

Some of our supporters enjoy engaging their own networks and planning events to raise money for us. One young supporter felt the call of ingenuity for good as she organized a lemonade stand to raise money for MEHS. Once she felt the inspiration of positive action, she leveled up with a schoolwide lemonade stand as a fundraising campaign.​ Do you have another brilliant idea? Contact us to arrange a third party fundraiser that will leave your attendees inspired to take positive action, too!

 

Host a Donation Drive

Some of our supporters enjoy engaging their own networks and planning events to collect supplies for us. Learning to give back is a valuable lesson for kids to learn early. Many of our young supporters have decided to use their own birthday celebrations as a way to give back to the community through donation drives. Our older supporters have hosted office party or school donation drives. 

 
 

CFC

(CFC), a giving program for federal employees and retirees, including veterans. Any federal employee who wishes to Combined Federal CampaignsMEHS is a proud participant of the opt-in to CFC giving should contact his or her HR department and provide them with our unique CFC code #35541.
