What is Give STL Day?
The St. Louis Community Foundation is partnering with local nonprofits from across the area to bring the community together, Give STL Day is an online day of giving where nonprofits like ours will be reaching out to our donors – and looking for new ones – as we educate them about our mission and raise much needed operating funds.
Last year we were able to raise just over $1000 which went to building new platforms for the big cats to climb and, of course, nap on as well as new enrichment items and materials for our education program, This year we we think we can do even better with YOUR help! Our goal for 2017 is $2500, will you help us get there on May 11?
All donations received will go directly to benefiting the animals that call the sanctuary home. Funds raised will be used to purchase:
- Welder - for maintenance on our current habitats and for constructing new enclosures for the expansion plan we are currently working on
- Enclosure Cameras - for live streaming for our supporters and enhancing our current behavioral observation program by learning more about what the animals are doing when we are not "watching"
- Radios - new and more reliable radios for our keepers and interns to keep in constant communication and maintain our high safety standards
- Pool - a new 8ft pool to replace one of our smaller pools
- Band Saw - used for current enclosure maintenance and further enclosure construction
- Leaf Blower - an additional leaf blower will help us keep our enclosures in great shape for the animals as well as maintain the grounds for visitors
