Raising Vital Funds

A Great Way to Help Animals
Thank you for your interest in fundraising for Edgar’s Mission! We are heartened to learn of caring people like you who wish to help us meet our ever-present need for funds.

Aligning with Our Values

Before reading the fundraising ideas below, we please ask that any activities you are considering are consistent with our values of kindness for all animals. This extends to avoiding activities that cause harm and distress to animals, activities that see animal products as part of the menu, or activities that involve products that have been tested on animals.

We understand that everyone is at a different stage in their journey of life and while we never wish to tell people what to do in keeping with the spirit of the aims of Edgar’s Mission, we cannot support the harming of animals in our name.

Thank you for wanting to support our mission and our life-saving work.
