Humane Society of Aurora Fund

Established 2015

humane_society_logo

The Humane Society of Aurora (HSA) was established in 2015. Later that year, HSA created a fund through the Community Foundation to support their mission of working in partnership with Aurora Animal Control and Care to increase adoptions and rescues, improve shelter conditions, and to educate and assist the community in responsible pet ownership.

The Humane Society of Aurora is an all-volunteer 501(c)3 organization. Working with the staff of Aurora Animal Control and Care, the volunteers of HSA establish enrichment programs, participate in special events (including the Aurora Farmer’s Market), and provide educational tours of Aurora Animal Control and Care to Scout troops and classrooms. HSA will also provide financial assistance for an animal’s medical care outside of the normal care provided by Aurora Animal Control and Care.

To learn more about the Humane Society of Aurora’s programs and to become a volunteer, visit their website HumaneSocietyOfAurora.org.

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.

Board Member & Scholarship Committee Member

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

Sharon Stredde

President Emeritus

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.
