This holiday season, you can help save an animal’s life by donating to the Susquehanna Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) and having that gift matched dollar-for-dollar. The Staffworks Charitable Fund Save A Life Campaign is matching donations made beginning on Giving Tuesday, November 27, through December 31.

In addition to matching up to a total of $10,000 from individual donors, the Staffworks Charitable Fund is also awarding a $10,000 bonus to the organization that receives the largest number of donations from individual donors and a $10,000 bonus to the organization that raises the most money during the campaign.

Every organization participating in the Staffworks Charitable Fund Save A Life Campaign has the opportunity to receive a total of $30,000 from the Staffworks Charitable Fund.

“We are honored to be part of the Save A Life Campaign,” said Susquehanna SPCA Executive Director Stacie Haynes. “Anita Vitullo is an extraordinary leader making a significant and positive impact on the lives of homeless animals in need. Our goal for this campaign is to raise a minimum of $10,000 so we can receive the full $10,000 match, making our total raised $20,000! With $20,000 we can schedule an estimated 100 spays or neuters through our local veterinarians,” Haynes explained.

The Staffworks Charitable Fund at The Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties was created by Staffworks founder and owner, Anita Vitullo, out of her concern for animals and her belief in their right to life. The Fund promotes humane communities by using company profits from branch office markets in central and southern New York to support organizations that provide care for at-risk animals.

“When you support or adopt from your local animal shelters and rescue organizations you are choosing to save an animal’s life,” Staffworks Charitable Fund Founder Anita Vitullo said. “We’ve invested more than $10 million to reduce animal suffering and help make connections between animals and people.”

To double the impact of your gift, visit and select Susquehanna SPCA. Online gifts can be made via MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express credit or debit cards. Gifts by personal check must be mailed to The Community Foundation, 2608 Genesee St., Utica, NY 13502 and should be made payable to The Community Foundation, with the name of the recipient organization indicated in the memo field.
