Corporate Sponsorship

Becoming a Midlands Humane Society (MHS) sponsor is a win-win situation for you as a community-minded business.  Your company will receive significant promotional value as a sponsor and you’ll feel good knowing your marketing dollars are helping people and pets in the community.  MHS offers several levels of sponsorship and recognition so that businesses – both large and small – can show their commitment to helping homeless animals.

Event Recognition 

Our annual Derby Gala, “Diggin' the Derby" is our largest fundraising event featuring a social hour, dinner, silent and live auction and its incredibly popular animal fashion show. With over 500 in attendance and raising $135,000 in 2019, the Derby Gala is an excellent venue to be publicly recognized as an MHS supporter.  We have some exciting new opportunities for the Derby Gala 2020.  If you would like to see our Sponsorship Opportunities, we would be happy to send you some information.

Other Benefits

Sponsors have access to unique benefits and opportunities that advertising alone cannot provide.  Our adoptive families will receive a listing of our larger sponsors along with their contact information

In addition, our 15,500+ Facebook friends, readers of the Council Bluffs Nonpareil and visitors to our website are always looking for ways to support our organizational sponsors.
