2013 $100k Challenge: Are You Ready?

ASPCA Rachael Ray 100k ChallengeThanks to the generous support of celebrity TV chef Rachael Ray, the ASPCA will once again hold its $100k Challenge in 2013 for animal shelters around the country to save more lives than ever before. Building on the momentum created by the tremendous success of the 2012 Challenge, the application period for the 2013 Challenge opens on Thursday, January 3, closing Wednesday, January 23 or until a sufficient number of eligible applications is received, whichever comes first. Contestants compete to save more lives from June 1 through August 31, 2013; a total of $600,000 in prize grants ranging from $5,000 to $100,000 will be awarded. Winners will be announced on or before September 30, 2013. Participation benefits reported by past Challengers have included a significant increase in support from their local communities, stronger teamwork, and rekindled inspiration to try new strategies and tactics for saving more lives.

The ASPCA is inviting interested organizations to register for one of two free information sessions on the 2013 Challenge to be held via webinar on Monday, December 10 at 3pm ET or Wednesday, December 12 at 5pm ET.
