Get matched, SAVE lives

A generous group of anonymous matching donors has set a lofty goal for Woodford Humane in 2019: raise $110,700 for the SAVE Matching Fund by the end of the year and they will double the entire amount. As of this writing, we’re getting close: the goal is 72 percent funded. But we still have just over $30,000 to raise, and time is running out on the year. Since its establishment in 2002, SAVE has been a major source of support for Woodford Humane. The added gift of matching money, on top of gifts from the community, starts off each new year on strong footing. 2019’s goal is our biggest ever, and holds a lot of promise for 2020 - $110,700, matched to become $221,400, is no small amount for a nonprofit on a tight budget! – and meeting that goal is absolutely essential. With no government funding at any level, Woodford Humane relies entirely on donations to provide food, water, shelter, veterinary care, treats, toys, beds, blankets and everything else needed by 1,000 pets each year. If you want to give the gift that we can stretch the furthest, dollar for dollar, the SAVE Matching Fund is the way to go. In the next eight days, your gift and many others can be doubled and help provide twice the lifesaving care for the animals who will rely on Woodford Humane in the months to come. If you can help us meet our SAVE Matching Fund goal, here’s how to do it: Mark your gift of $100 or more to SAVE – either online at woodfordhumane.org, in person at our Adoption Center, or in the memo line of a check mailed to P.O. Box 44, Versailles, Ky. 40383 – and make sure you give before midnight on Dec. 31. It’s as simple as that! When we meet our goal and enter the new year, every dollar will be matched. If you have questions about making a gift, adopting a pet, or anything else we can help with, don’t hesitate to get in touch: 859-873-5491 or manager@woodfordhumane.org.
