Fundraise for AARCS
The Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS) is often approached by kind individuals and organizations that are looking to hold their own fundraisers to raise money for AARCS. A Third Party Fundraiser is defined as any event which is planned, hosted, and staged by someone other than AARCS.
Third Party Fundraisers can include everything from:
- Company social group fundraisers
- Golf tournaments
- Kids lemonade stands
- Weddings – brides and grooms asking their guests to donate to AARCS in lieu of wedding gifts or favors
- Birthday parties
- Bake sales
- Silent auctions
- and many more wonderful ideas.
These events provide a vital source of income to AARCS and any amount raised is very gratefully received.

Fundraiser in a Bag
In order to assist those who want to run a fundraiser, AARCS has put together a ‘Fundraiser in a Bag’ to help make running an event easier. We have put together a variety of ‘bags’ that we hope will cater to every size and type of event. These bags are free to use and, once requested, can be picked up and returned to AARCS Safe Haven.
The following ‘Fundraiser in a Bag’ options are available:
|Number of attendees||Bag contents|
|20||1 AARCS canvas bag, 1 AARCS poster, 15 information leaflets, 20 pens, an envelope for donations, and an email newsletter sign-up sheet for attendees|
|50||2 AARCS canvas bags, 2 AARCS posters, 30 information leaflets, 50 pens, an envelope for donations, and an email newsletter sign-up sheet for attendees|
|100||4 AARCS canvas bags, 4 AARCS posters, 60 information leaflets, 100 pens, an envelope for donations, and an email newsletter sign-up sheet for attendees||Merchandise option available*|
|200||5 AARCS canvas bags, 1 table banner, 5 AARCS posters, 80 information leaflets, 200 pens, an envelope for donations, and an email newsletter sign-up sheet for attendees||Merchandise option available*|
|Kids Mini-Bag (e.g. lemonade stands, birthday parties)||1 AARCS canvas bag, 1 poster, 5 pens, 10 information leaflets + an AARCS stuffy if over $100 is raised|
If the ‘Fundraiser In A Bag’ option does not fit your needs, we are happy to discuss your needs and put together alternative options.
We do ask that any unused items be returned to AARCS Safe Haven after your event to be reused.
If you would like to request a ‘Fundraiser in a Bag’ or have any queries, please send an email stating which size bag you would like along with a completed Third Party Fundraiser Application form (available on our website) and return them to firstname.lastname@example.org
