Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why is the New Hampshire SPCA launching a campaign?

    Higher demand and new challenges are impacting our ability to meet our mission of rescuing, rehabilitating, and adopting all animals in need. These challenges include higher numbers of equine surrender and adoptions, greater local demand for adoptable animals, pressing need for humane education in our communities, higher costs associated with animal medical care, and infrastructure issues. To address these challenges and to ensure financial sustainability, we must expand our facilities and grow our endowment.

  • How was the financial goal determined?

    The financial goal was established by the change makers and their initial investments, as well as the needs of the agency and what is required to fulfill our vision.

  • What is the timeline for the campaign?

    The campaign will occur from 2017 to 2021. The quiet phase of the campaign began on February 1, 2017. The public phase of the campaign depends on the timing of leadership and major gifts, but the estimated public announcement is scheduled for early 2019. The New Hampshire SPCA will be actively soliciting donors for three years between 2017 and 2019

  • What are the campaign priorities?

    Three primary initiatives will scale up our impact for animals in need:

    • Expanding and renovating the current facility, achieving greater efficiency and providing enhanced services
    • Building an arena for equine rehabilitation and training, as well as a publicly facing low cost animal wellness clinic
    • Growing the organization’s endowment to ensure future financial stability
  • Have there been other campaigns?

    Yes. There is a long history of generous philanthropy at New Hampshire SPCA, which has allowed the organization to have an incredible impact within the communities it serves. The most recent campaign ended in 2000 and raised $3.2 million to support programs and facilities.

  • What is an endowment?

    The endowment is a permanent fund from which only earned income is spent; the principal is invested under the guidance of organizational leadership and investment experts. The return from the investment of this money may be used to cover gaps in the annual operating budget or to support designated activities.

  • What is the benefit of increasing the endowment?

    In addition to ensuring the financial stability and security of the organization, endowment funds provide relief for the general operating budget; and support the development of new programs and expansion of facilities.

  • Who will be asked to participate in the campaign?

    All supporters who have a prior relationship to New Hampshire SPCA, as well as people invested in animal welfare will be asked to invest in this important endeavor for organization. This includes, but is not limited to, volunteers, community stakeholders, and other annual supporters.

  • Can I designate my gift to a specific area/project?

    To ensure the strategic aims of the campaign are achieved, New Hampshire SPCA encourages supporters to make undesignated gifts in support of the whole campaign. This will provide the Board of Directors, Trustees, and staff leadership with the greatest flexibility in implementing priority and time-sensitive projects.

  • Are naming opportunities available?

    Yes. The New Hampshire SPCA developed a list of special naming opportunities to honor extraordinary commitments to the campaign. A full list of naming opportunities is available upon request.

  • How long do I have to make my pledge payments?

    The pledge period is 3-5 years. Annual payments may differ in amount; the organization will remain flexible to help donors make the most impactful gift possible.

  • I already support the New Hampshire SPCA with an annual gift. Why should I make a capital campaign gift, too?

    Annual donations help us with our day-to-day operations. This covers everything from basic needs such as electricity, heat, food, clean bedding; to the specialized needs of medications, surgery, special diets and much more. Gifts to the capital campaign provide funding to plan and develop the needs for the future, such as major renovations, expansion, new programs, and endowment growth. Capital gifts ensure we continue to meet changing demands and care standards for our animals, and our local community. All gifts support the organization and our mission, and both are incredibly important.
