Champions for Animals Fundraising Event Policies

The BC SPCA is extremely grateful for the efforts of all community members who undertake fundraising to benefit the Society. The BC SPCA will assist you by providing materials and answering any questions you may have. However, in order to protect both your interests and those of the BC SPCA, please review and agree to the following Fundraising Event Policies. 

EVENT REQUIREMENTS:

  • The BC SPCA will not be held legally liable for any injury, damage, cost, or loss that may be suffered by any person or entity arising out of or in connection with your event. Please keep in mind that third-party event fundraisers are not authorized staff/agents of the BC SPCA.
  • The BC SPCA does not approve of the following types of Champions for Animals events:
    • Programs that involve a professional fundraiser, telemarketing and/or an agreement to raise funds on a commission, bonus or percentage basis (with the exception of cause related marketing programs developed with corporate partners). 
    • Vending machine sales.
    • Any event at which animals (including crustaceans like shrimp, crab or lobster) are killed for food.
  • Vegetarian or vegan food options must be made available at all third-party events at which food is served in order to meet the anticipated needs of participants. When animal products are served, event organizers are encouraged to use SPCA Certified, Certified Organic or other higher welfare products when possible.
  • Any events held to benefit the BC SPCA should take caution not to promote or endorse any particular political party, candidate or politician, due to Canada Revenue Agency guidelines that prohibit registered charities from demonstrating political partisanship.
  • The BC SPCA recommends that total expenses related to promotion and event overhead do not exceed 20% of gross revenues.

FUNDS RAISED AND TAX RECEIPTING:

  • All monies raised for the BC SPCA must be obtained through legal means.
  • Official tax receipts will only be issued in accordance with Canada Revenue Agency guidelines. The final decision to issue official tax receipts rests with the BC SPCA. A responsible percentage of the gross revenues from all fundraising events should be directed to the BC SPCA.
  • All donation cheques should be made payable to “BC SPCA” and note the name of the event. Event organizers may not take fees, commissions or salary. The BC SPCA requests that event cheque(s) be submitted within one month of completion of the event.
  • All costs must be paid directly by the event organizer.

EVENT MARKETING & SPONSORSHIP:

  • The BC SPCA logo is a registered trademark. The BC SPCA prohibits the use of its name and logo in event materials without the express written permission of an authorized staff member of the BC SPCA.
  • All third-party event publicity materials, including but not limited to: press releases, pitch letters, printed or electronic advertisements, save the dates and invitations, brochures, and any other form of event materials must be submitted to the BC SPCA for review and approval before they are made public. Please allow one week for a response regarding approval and understand that extra time may be needed for additional review after edits have been made.
  • All event materials must make clear that the event is hosted by the event organizer and may not state or imply that the event is a BC SPCA event.
  • The BC SPCA must be informed in advance of any corporations or businesses that the event organizers plan to approach for sponsorships to help us minimize overlap or impact regarding any existing Society relationships.
  • When possible, the BC SPCA would appreciate receiving copies of written information or photographs for possible inclusion in the Society’s publications and social media.

MEDIA & SPEAKERS:

  • It is understood that the BC SPCA will not be responsible for providing any mailing lists, sponsors or speakers for the event.
  • Although we will consider requests for appearance/attendance by Society staff, event organizers should understand that, due to limited resources, we are not able to attend most events. Guest attendees from the BC SPCA are to receive complimentary tickets or admission when invited to speak or attend the event.
  • The BC SPCA will not furnish contact information for members of the media or issue a press release to publicize a specific Champions for Animals event.

CHAMPIONS FOR ANIMALS RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Champions for Animals event organizers are responsible for selling tickets to their event. The BC SPCA is unable to assume responsibility for ticket sales.
  • All event organizers who hold a 50/50 draw or raffle must apply for a gaming licence through the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch: http://www.pssg.gov.bc.ca/gaming/licences/index.htm. Please note that all gaming licences must be applied for under the Third-Party event’s name, not the BC SPCA. If BC Gaming requests an acknowledgment letter from the Society, please let your BC SPCA contact know.
  • Event organizers are solely responsible for recruiting, organizing and overseeing volunteers and/or administrative and staffing needs.
  • Event organizers are responsible for filing any necessary event permits and providing insurance coverage (if required) for their event. Event Organizers accept all liabilities incurred from their event.
  • The Event organizers are solely responsible for 100% of the costs incurred for producing a special event. The BC SPCA is unable to compensate any organizer/event for expenses/costs incurred.
  • The BC SPCA retains the right to withdraw its approval of a third-party event if the above guidelines are not adhered to.
