As a private nonprofit organization, Heaven on Earth receives no government funding, so must raise our entire $670,000 budget from individual, corporate and foundation donors.
Our corporate partners support us primarily through our annual gala dinner, with sponsorship ranging from $1,500-25,000. Some corporations have their own philanthropic foundations, to which we may apply for grants. We are also the grateful beneficiaries of in-kind donations of food from the Petsmart and Petco stores where we hold weekly adoption events.
Corporations provide additional support by donating auction items and placing ads in the gala program booklet and on our website. Finally, a number of our individual donors are affiliated with companies that match their gifts to Heaven on Earth. In all, corporations accounted for more than $153,000 in gifts and grants in 2015.
