Once again, Paws for Healing has been selected to participate in CanDo’s Give!Guide project…it is one of several dynamic
projects orchestrated by the all-volunteer nonprofit founded in 2009, Napa Valley CanDo.
The Give!Guide , now in it seventh year, supports Napa County nonprofits by raising funds and awareness, fostering collaboration,
and cultivating an ever-larger community of givers. Over 100 nonprofits have been its beneficiaries. Nonprofits go through an
application and vetting process in the spring and must reapply each year.
There are three parts: a catalog featuring selected NPOS, a user-friendly website to accept and track donations, and a year-end PR
campaign mounted by CanDo and each of the participating nonprofits to inspire donations between November 1 and December 31.
Donations are made via the website or by check and begin at just $10 with incentive prizes and thank you gifts for all donors.
In six years, CanDo’s Give!Guide has raised more than 1.8 million dollars for local nonprofit organizations doing critical work. CanDo
takes no fee for organizing the project.
Paws for Healing is excited to be a participant in this project again and hope that we can inspire our friends to donate to our
organization! We always need money for advertising to encourage new volunteers and money for our evaluations and training and
mentoring process. So thank you in advance for your help! Woof woof and wag wag and thank you!
