How It Works
A custom fundraising contest site is created just for your organization.
Participants submit an entry to your site and campaign for votes. Their friends receive an invite via social media to donate $1 per vote on their entry. It's a fun and easy way for donors to give.
No setup fee. No upfront fees.
5% transaction fee on all contest donations after $5,000 has been raised. 15% transaction fee on all contest donations until $5,000 has been raised. How much will you raise? Check out our pricing calculator to find out!
Not Just For Animal Welfare Groups
Not an Animal Rescue or Humane Society?
GoGo Photo Contest is for YOU, too! Any group or non-profit organization interested in running a donate-to-vote photo contest can run a GoGo Photo Contest.

Weimaraner Rescue of the South
"...We are a SMALL organization in regards to number of volunteers, foster homes, etc. We have an operating budget of about $100,000 a year. 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!"

Animal Welfare League of Alexandria
"The AWLA has used GoGoPhotoContest.com for our annual pet photo contest for three consecutive years. The platform is attractive, easy to use, and the GoGo team has always been courteous and responsive to any issues that arise. The pet photo contest is one of the AWLA's biggest fundraising events, and thanks to the improvements that GoGo has made with every upgrade, we continue to exceed our fundraising goals every year."

Dumb Friends League
"For our annual photo contest, we were looking for a contest platform that would be easy for our constituents to use, provided good reporting and didn't take a lot of manual oversight. The GoGo Photo Contest platform provided all that along with exceptional customer service. We had one of our best contest years yet! The feedback on our contest was all positive, we raised 35% more than our goal and received more entries than the previous year. We are extremely pleased with the platform and service and can't wait to work with GoGo Photo Contest team on next year's contest."

We are proud to partner with Gogo Photo for our Annual Photo Fundraiser. Our donors love the contest and the calendars when they come in the fall every year. Thank you Gogo Photo for making this campaign a success for over 6 years!"

Doberman Rescue Minnesota
"We have tried a few calendar contest platforms in the past and we always ended up frustrated. When we found GoGo Photo Contest, we were amazed at how easy the team was to work with, how quickly our site was set up, and the ease of use for our contest supporters. Though the fees were higher than previous contests, we still had our biggest calendar fundraiser to date! We cannot wait to see what our next contest brings in."

St. Augustine Humane Society
"Thanks again for a great contest. We've worked with GoGo Photo Contest since 2014 and have made the most ever this year…$25,000 is a record for us! I can't say enough great things about the support we've received from Jason and Stevie since Gogo has been hosting our annual contests. They allow us to be as creative as we want and Gogo is a true partner throughout the process, being responsive to all our ideas and concerns. This fundraiser has become our signature event and we pair it with a yearend party where we do a grand reveal of our Pin Up Paws calendar. Our community loves it!
- Carolyn Smith, Executive Director, St. Augustine Humane Society
Helen Sanders CatPAWS
"We have run a couple calendar photo contests for our cat rescue group through GoGo and have found them to be easy and pleasant to work with. They have consistently provided support and guidance and answered our questions promptly. Our calendar contests have been a financial success and we hope to continue to partner with GoGo in making this fundraiser an annual event."
- Deborah, Board member, Helen Sanders CatPAWS
"Partnering with GoGo Photo Contest made our calendar photo contest fundraiser seamless, easy, and fun.

Humane Society of Tampa Bay
"We first started using gogophotocontest.com 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."

Belly Rubs Basset Rescue
"We've worked with GoGo Photo Contest for five years and they've helped us raise $58,000. Before switching to GoGo we ran our contests ourselves, through our own site. 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."
- Daphne Parker, Belly Rubs Basset Rescue
Operation Freedom Paws Canada
"I want to thank you for everything you did to make our Van Isle Dogs 2022 Calendar Contest a great success! You were always willing to help, problem-solve, suggest, fix, code and do whatever whenever I needed help. With your support, running the contest was easy and not at all as scary as it first appeared.
We raised $32,852 for Operation Freedom Paws Canada Service Dog Program. If we have a contest next year, it will be a GoGo contest."

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. GOGOPHOTOCONTEST.com 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! GOGOphotocontest.com 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, GOGOphotocontest.com 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! The 2017 Above & Beyond English Setter Rescue Calendar contest generated over $8,600!
Thank You GOGOPHOTOCONTEST.com!

Southwest English Setter Rescue
"When we heard about the GoGo Photo Contest we thought "what a great way to raise money, have fun and get pictures for a calendar". We were extremely pleased with the results of our GoGo fundraiser and it was great fun for our supporters and our volunteers. The GoGo team was very responsive and easy to work with before, during and after our contest. We plan to make the English Setter Snapshots Contest an annual event for SWESR. Thanks GoGo for supporting rescues!"

"I want to thank you for helping us have another very successful MetroWest Humane Calendar Contest! The last few minutes were crazy, but when the clock stopped, we all started to breathe again and were thrilled with the results.
I am now starting Phase 2, mocking up the calendar for publishing. You are the best and I hope that you will work with us again next year! I will continue to praise GoGo Photo Contest across the land!!"

Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA
"Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA has been using Gogophoto contest for 2 years now, and we love it! When I originally started our first contest, I set our fundraising goal at $5,000, quickly after we launched the contest our vote donations quickly surpassed this goal and we raised over $10,000 for our shelter animals. The best part is, its super easy to use and if you have any question the Gogo staff are always there to help you! Our donors love it too, because it's a different and unique way to donate to our shelter and it makes donating fun and easy! PHS/SPCA plans to use Gogo every year to host this contest!"
- Nova Maldonado, Special Events Coordinator, Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA

Dachshund Rescue South Florida
"Dachshund Rescue South Florida is thrilled with the GoGo Photo Contest Platform as not only does it reduce the amount of "hands on" management from our team in running and promoting the contest, but allows our entrants to set their own fundraising goals and seamlessly promote their own entries via social networking. We are just a few weeks into taking entries, but we are already on track to have our biggest year ever!"

Suncoast Humane Society
"We are very happy with GoGo Photo Contest. We have requested a few changes and their response was very fast. This is the first time we have offered online uploading of calendar photos through a 3rd party website and so far we are very pleased! We would highly recommend GoGo Photo Contest to other humane societies."
- Lisa Folger, Development Manager, Suncoast Humane Society, Englewood, FL
New Fairfield Sherman Animal Welfare Society
"New Fairfield Sherman Animal Welfare Society started running the photo contest a few years back. I was rather apprehensive, as this was my first fundraising event. Jason was wonderful, and walked me through the whole process step by step. This contest has become one of our most popular fundraisers. Easy for us and fun for our participants!"

National Great Pyrenees Rescue, Inc.
"GoGo Photo Contest has given a substantial boost to our national fundraising efforts. Our annual photo contest has produced new record results each year. I attribute this to GoGo's engaging layout and responsive code, which makes it easy for participants to stay up-to-date on the latest results. We'll definitely be using GoGo again this year, and I highly recommend them to any animal rescue organization contemplating a photo contest fundraiser."

"We came upon GoGo Photo Contest in 2015 when searching for a new platform to run our annual Calendar Contest. What immediately stood out for us was the phenomenal customer service we received from our very first inquiry. Since then, and several contests later, they remain committed to helping us reach our goals and by year two, we doubled our original fundraising goal!
Want to change something up or try something new? They're promptly on it and always with cheerful, optimistic dispositions. We love working with this company!

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).
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?
