Raising Money for Charity

For every eligible video submitted to the contest, Smoky Lake will make a $5 donation to Humane Animal Welfare Society of Waukesha County.

Mission Statement

Humane Animal Welfare Society (HAWS) is an open-admission, no-kill shelter dedicated to strengthening the relationship between animals and humans through adoptions and education – making a more compassionate community possible.

Our mission is to lead the community in animal welfare and assure sanctuary for animals in need. To that end, We envision a community where all animals are treated with compassion, dignity, and respect. We invite the public to join us in our cause to spread humane sentiments throughout our community for the betterment of animals and people alike.


How Did We Select This Charity?

Since our contest theme was inspired by our shop cat, Viktor, it felt most fitting to select an animal welfare agency as our charitable beneficiary. (Viktor was a rescue kitty too after all!) In a recent pole at Smoky Lake, we confirmed that many of our team members feel very strongly about animal welfare projects as well.

Team members added their favorite nonprofit organizations to our list of potential beneficiaries. We then relied on a third party analysis to narrow down our selection. This vetting process gives us the confidence that our donations will have the most meaningful, positive impact, and also ensures that we are being responsible stewards of our charitable funds.

Humane Animal Welfare Society has been given a ”Give with Confidence“ rating on Charity Navigator.

Smoky Lake Maple Products is not affiliated with HAWS. We simply liked their mission, they passed our third party evaluation process, and we wanted to give back to our community. This contest is not meant to imply that HAWS endorses Smoky Lake nor does it have any kind of affiliation with Smoky Lake.
