    Above & Beyond English Setter Rescue
    "As a 501c3 100% volunteer rescue, 75% of our funding comes from donations and fundraising. Our annual rescue calendar has evolved into one of our top annual fundraisers. contests provide an easy and effective means to have our adopters submit their dog's pictures and have the public "purchase" votes to vote their favorites into the top calendar spots for larger photos. Every photo that gets submitted is included in our calendar.

    In addition to being a lot of fun, it's heartwarming to see how our past dogs have thrived in their adopters' care. This is also a great way to stay connected with past adopters and receive continuing donations. They look forward to each year's calendar contest and having their baby among the many beautiful photos! makes running a photo contest easy! They provide detail forms for all information needed to create a professional and appealing contest site. The administrative reports are perfect for tracking activity and for financial reporting. Donations are sent right to our bank account of choice. Plus, employees are awesome. They respond quickly to questions and getting a contest up and running is extremely quick!

    People love their pets – let's face it - their family. Our adopters look forward to our photo contest every year! We've raised our financial goal each year and have repeatedly exceeded our goal. This "event" gets bigger every year! We raised more than ever before with this years contest. 

    Thank You!

The fact that we can bring in 20% of that with our annual calendar contests is huge, especially since it requires so little volunteer time and effort because of your amazing product.

    So, THANK YOU for gogophotocontest! And I appreciate that you're continually making improvements to the dashboard and that your help and support section is actually helpful and supportive!"

    Humane Society of Tampa Bay
    "We first started using GoGo Photo Contest in 2015 when we were looking for a unique fundraiser in the summer. We weren't quite sure what to expect but it was well received by our supporters. We have continued this fundraiser each year since then and most recently finished our fundraiser in 2018. This was our most successful year in which we set a high goal of $40,000 (more than we have ever raised for this contest) and ended up raising over $59,000!!!! The program is very user friendly for both the donor and for us as the non-profit. We use this fundraiser as a photo calendar contest and we cannot wait to continue it next year! We're thrilled to raise this additional money to help homeless animals in Tampa Bay."

When GoGo stepped in with a better site that was easier to use, proceeds from our vote-to-donate contests increased more than 50 percent. Stevie and Jason are always available to answer questions during the fundraiser or help us with with anything that arises. We wouldn't go anywhere else for our custom fund-raising contests."

Animal Shelters and Humane Societies

GoGo Photo Contest was created with you in mind! We understand the unique challenges animal shelters and humane groups face when fundraising. Our co-founders have been involved in animal welfare fundraising since 2005.

Wine or Beer Label Contests

Bringing a local winery or brewery on board to create a specific beverage in honor of the winner can make winning the top spot even more special. It's also an excellent way to increase community involvement while extending your fundraising outreach (win-win).

Calendar Contests

Having a photo calendar as part of your prize package is one of the most popular prize options and we can see why- who wouldn't like to see their cherished pet's furry face on a special month in a calendar?
