We are thrilled that GSF Properties, Inc. chose the CCSPCA to benefit from their fundraising campaign this year. Headquartered in Fresno, California, GSF Properties Inc. is a privately held company with district offices in Merced and Bakersfield. The company is a service organization specializing in residential multi-family property management with a portfolio of 8,980 units! Serving more than 20,000 customers throughout the greater San Joaquin Valley, the company is committed to values of excellence, leadership, service and community.
Their variety of fundraising efforts has been creative, fun, and extremely beneficial for the CCSPCA. GSF Properties, Inc. raised over $7,000 for us!
One popular fundraising idea they used that netted 100% profit to the CCSPCA was the “Casual for a Cause Campaign.” Like many companies, GSF Properties, Inc. has a casual dress Friday policy. Taking it one step further, the company offers Casual Mondays to aid fundraising efforts and increase awareness for the charity. The employee makes a donation to the charity and in exchange receives a t-shirt highlighting the charity. Signage is placed at property locations explaining “Casual for a Cause” allowing vendors, and current or potential customers the opportunity to ask questions, donate, and get involved.
They also organized several events to raise funds, including, a silent auction dinner in Merced, Casino Night in Bakersfield, and Evening Under the Stars in Fresno. Their Evening Under the Stars event had over 200 attendees and was emceed by local radio personality, Skippy with New Rock 104. Entertainment was provided by The Marie Wilson Band. The weather was perfect, the food was delicious, and they raffled off some great items to their guests.
Overall, about half of the money for this year’s gift to the CCSPCA came from property fundraising events and “Casual For a Cause” donations. The properties also raised money by hosting hot dog and nacho lunches, yard sales, and keeping a change jar present in the office throughout the year.
