The Shelter has joined eBay Giving Works!  Now you can help the Shelter every time you buy or sell on eBay, the world’s largest online marketplace with over 112 million members.  By completing a fast and easy registration process, the Animal Shelter of Schoharie Valley will appear as a donation option every time you list an item to sell on eBay, or make a purchase there.  Your donations will be automatically transferred to the Shelter’s donation account upon completion of payment.

To take part, first add ASSV as one of your preferred eBay charities by clicking on “My eBay”,“Summary”, then “Donation Account” on the dropdown menu under the “Account” tab. Select “My Favorite Nonprofits” from the left column. In the “Find Your Favorites” section, type out “Animal Shelter of Schoharie Valley” and select “NY” from the dropdown list of states. When the ASSV logo appears, click on the blue tab to add it to your list of preferred charities. ASSV will then automatically come up as an eBay Giving Works option each item you buy or sell.

EBay sellers may designate from 10 to 100 percent of their sale price (with a $1 minimum per listing) as a donation by selecting ASSV at the time of listing. Sellers also benefit by having their listing and final value fees reimbursed by the same percentage that they donated.  Further details for sellers are available on the “For Sellers” section of the the eBay Giving Works FAQ page.

To view a record of your donations or obtain a tax receipt, you may revisit the “Donation Account” section of your “My eBay” profile following the above instructions.

Thank you for helping ASSV when you use Ebay!
