The Kansas Humane Society is pleased to offer our corporate partners excellent opportunities for visibility and participation! We are proud to offer sponsorship packages, workplace giving presentations, and more. The thousands of homeless pets KHS cares for each year are counting on your help! Spreading the word about the Kansas Humane Society's good work can be as easy as a mention in your corporate publications. Your business can support us by keeping employees informed of events and activities at the animal shelter through employee newsletters, your corporate website or email communications. You can also promote the Kansas Humane Society in company e-mails, newsletters and bulletins.
When your company partners with Kansas Humane Society, it is a win-win situation! That's because being a good corporate citizen is also a good business decision.
Because we don't receive local, state or federal tax dollars or support from the Humane Society of the United States, and are not a United Way Agency we rely on these donations to make our work possible.
