Donor pledges to match gifts made to ACCT Philly on #GivingTuesday  (Donate Now)

Thanks to the generosity of one animal lover, all gifts made to ACCT Philly on #GivingTuesday, November 29th, will be matched up to a total of $10,000. Donations must be made to the Stella Fund, ACCT Philly’s medical fund for homeless pets. The Stella Fund provides simple yet lifesaving veterinary care, diagnostics and procedures to sick and injured pets, giving them a second chance.

“We are blown away by this incredible support and opportunity to raise critical lifesaving funds,” said Vincent Medley, ACCT Philly executive director. “#GivingTuesday is the perfect time to make a donation and double the impact for injured pets in need.”

Make a donation to the ACCT Philly Stella Fund on #GivingTuesday, November 29th, online at, or call 267-385-3800 x136. Mailed-in checks with “#GivingTuesday” recorded in the memo area will be honored for the match.

Named after a beloved cat adopted from ACCT Philly, the Stella Fund provides medical care to homeless dogs and cats who have no one else. With simple surgeries or treatments, the Stella Fund transforms these hurting pets into healthy, adoptable animals, allowing the shelter to focus on finding them forever homes. Since it’s creation in 2013, the Stella Fund has provided lifesaving care to hundreds of pets.

#GivingTuesday is a day of global giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. This is ACCT Philly’s third year participating in this international event.
