SANS was awarded a grant from The Gifford Foundation as part of the Animal Welfare Organization Volunteer Capacity Building Program in 2014. SANS was a participant in this collaborative, consultant-facilitated capacity building program which was hosted by The Gifford Foundation for animal welfare organizations in Central New York. This program focused on the development and enhancement of volunteers for SANS. The goal of the program is to increase volunteer participation, benefitting SANS mission to provide low cost spay and neuter services for low income household pets, students, veterans and animal rescuers in the Syracuse area.
As a result of this program, SANS improved the organization's management and marketing tools and increased recruitment of volunteers through local events. The Gifford Foundation grant will be applied to new marketing materials for volunteer recruitment and fundraising, and supporter outreach. SANS thanks The Gifford Foundation for their support of our efforts to reduce animal overpopulation.
The Gifford Foundation was established in 1954 as a private foundation serving Syracuse and the surrounding Central New York community. The Foundation supports individuals and organizations through grants and initiatives that build on community assets and promote positive change in the community.
