Sponsorship Opportunities 2016-2017

For individuals, families or companies looking to contribute in a unique way, sponsorship is the way to go! Your sponsorship includes recognition in unique ways that you can share with family, friends and customers.

There are many benefits to corporate sponsorship, including increased brand awareness, generating new customers, and reinforcing your current customer relationships by creating positive public relations. By sponsoring an AARCS event or program, you help the public create an emotional commitment to your brand, you will receive both onsite and media exposure through AARCS, you will have the satisfaction of being involved in your community and in certain cases, the sponsorship is also tax deductible.

Event Sponsorship

A Tail to Remember – June 11, 2016

The Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS) will be hosting A Tail to Remember fundraiser (formally known as Art Combat) on Saturday June 11, 2016 at the hip and chic ‘Civic on Third’ in downtown Calgary! Guests will enjoy live music, wine, hors d’oeuvres, signature drinks, raffles, and a chance to bid on silent and live auction items. Those in attendance will be entertained as they watch talented local artists turn blank canvasses into distinct pieces of artwork throughout the night. At the end of the evening, the art will be live auctioned off to the highest bidder. Tickets for the evening are $60 each, or six tickets for $300. We hope to see you there!

All proceeds raised from this evening will go towards the programs and services that AARCS provides. The Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society’s mission is “Changing Lives through Kindness” to create our vision of “A Compassionate World for All Animals.” In Alberta, thousands of cats and dogs are homeless, abandoned, abused or living in horrendous conditions. We work closely with rural and First Nations communities where there is limited to no animal services.

In 2015, AARCS took in over 2,700 cats and dogs. We cared for them by providing medical care, spaying/neutering, vaccinating and then found their forever families. AARCS also has assistance programs such as Spay/Neuter, TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) for Cats and Emergency Medical Assistance.

Other Sponsorship

Vehicle Sponsorship – $35,000Sample van

AARCS is looking to purchase a new Ford Transit van. Our small fleet of vehicles is becoming extremely expensive to maintain with aging high kilometer vehicles. We recentlyhad to ground one of our vans for the safety of the animals and our volunteers. Our aging trucks will soon need to be replaced.

We have the opportunity to purchase a Ford Transit at the low price of $33,000 (regularly $45,000). Plus an additional $2000 to outfit it.

AARCS is looking to develop partnerships with an individual or business that would like to become involved and make a positive difference in our communities. To make this vehicle purchase affordable we are looking for sponsors to assist in the cost to purchase the vehicle
