#AllAnimalsMatter – $10,000 Matching Gift Challenge

October 1, 2017 – November 30, 2017

All Animals Matter… Caring For Creatures has been operating from this philosophy from the moment we opened our doors in August 1988 as central Virginia’s first no-kill sanctuary.  From day one our primary focus is to provide a safe haven for animals with nowhere else to go.  This includes animals abandoned by their humans; animals who have      endured years of neglect and are dealing with multiple medical issues; and animals in shelters who are terrified and have mentally/emotionally shut down in that environment.  For nearly 30 years CFC has given a second chance to animals who otherwise would have been euthanized or would have died trying to survive on their own.

This lofty vision carries with it the need to provide focused health care and loving companionship by dedicated staff and volunteers every day.  It also requires substantial financial resources.  With that in mind, I am pleased to announce our #AllAnimalsMatter $10,000 Matching Gift Challenge!  Beginning OCTOBER 1, 2017 and running through NOVEMBER 30, 2017, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar up to a total of $10,000!   We ask for your help in meeting this challenge!

 The #AllAnimalsMatter $10,000 Matching Gift Challenge is being presented to you by a long-time donor and volunteer.  This individual, who prefers to remain anonymous, has been a part of the CFC family since 2006.  She has donated her time and talents to many endeavors that benefit the animals some of which include dog walking and   bathing, and off-site fundraising activities.  We are grateful to her for this special matching gift opportunity as well as the many varying talents she shares with CFC to benefit the animals.

Please help us meet this important $10,000 #AllAnimalsMatter Matching Gift Challenge by sending your tax-deductible gift, in any amount, today.   Don’t delay – your help is needed to meet the #AllAnimalsMatter $10,000 Matching Gift Challenge.  We are so very grateful for your past support and for being an important lifeline to so many awesome animals.  Thank you.
