We’re thrilled to ameownce that we’re now accepting applications from Edmonton-area cat-related rescues and non-profit organizations who would like an opportunity to become a 2020 Cat Festival Donation Recipient!
Since 2014, the festival has donated $112,000 to local cat rescues.
Last year alone, thanks to thousands of festival purrticipants and our vendors and sponsors, we were able to raise $31,000 for rescues!
Submitting an application does not guarantee you will receive a donation. A selection committee will determine donation recipients based on specific criteria. Regardless of whether your rescue receives a donation, we encourage you to participate in the festival as part of our programming!
We have special non-profit rates for securing a table at the event, and are always open to discussing whether your organization can be part of unique cat-themed programming.
Past rescues we’ve worked with have supplied kittens for a ‘Kitty Play Pen,’ created a ‘Kitty Maze‘ attendees could help guide kittens through, and provided cats for ‘Cat Yoga.’ Our kitty/cat programming organized by rescues are one of the most popular CATivities at the festival, and a great way to attract festival attendees to your area, learn about the work your rescue does, and secure potential adoptions, fosters, volunteers, or additional donations.
The deadline to apply to be a 2020 Cat Festival Donation Recipient is November 25, 2019.
The selected donation recipients will be announced in December.
