HSMC To Receive Match from The Patterson Foundation to Benefit Expansion of Veterinary Clinic Services
The organization is participating in The Patterson Foundation’s Margin & Mission Ignition initiative to implement earned-income strategies that strengthen mission impact
Bradenton, Fla. November 24, 2017 – Humane Society of Manatee County will receive a match from The Patterson Foundation to jumpstart its efforts to implement an entrepreneurial earned-income plan to expand clinic services. Focused on strengthening its mission impact in the region, the expansion of low-to-moderate cost veterinary services is an effort to meet the community’s changing needs. Funds contributed to the organization by Feb. 15, 2018, will be matched dollar for dollar by The Patterson Foundation up to 50 percent of the startup capital requirement. Pledges, in-kind contributions and debt funding will not be matched.
The earned-income plan was developed during Humane Society of Manatee County’s participation in Margin & Mission Ignition, an initiative of The Patterson Foundation designed to embed long-term earned-income strategies and models within nonprofits in our region. Humane Society of Manatee County is one of four nonprofits participating in the 18-month planning and implementation process. The organization is receiving extensive consultation on revenue-generating strategies from No Margin, No Mission, a social enterprise and national consulting firm engaged by The Patterson Foundation on this initiative.
“This earned income initiative will significantly heighten our mission impact in our community” said Rick Yocum, Executive Director of Humane Society of Manatee County.
Humane Society of Manatee County is committed to leading Manatee County in fostering compassion and respect for animals through care, education and collaboration. Our mission based earned income initiative includes reinvesting increased earned income into providing more services for cats and dogs in financially challenged families.
The organization shared its earned-income plan with potential investors during a recent fast-pitch-style event presented by The Patterson Foundation. Beyond the match challenge, The Patterson Foundation is investing $23,000 in efforts to help Humane Society of Manatee County develop its earned-income strategies.
“Humane Society of Manatee County has spent months developing a plan to adopt an earned-income strategy that aligns with their mission, capacity and culture,” said Debra Jacobs, president and CEO of The Patterson Foundation. “Early mission investors can double their impact with this match.”
