Contribute to the Endowment Fund
The Endowment Fund was established to ensure the continuity and longevity of Dogs with Wings. Gifts to the Dogs with Wings Endowment Fund are permanently endowed, which means the gift itself is never spent. It is the investment income that provides the ongoing support for the organization.
Your gift will be timeless, supporting the charity that you care deeply about. With a gift of $10,000 or more, you will also have the ability to create a named fund as a tribute or memorial to a loved one or to add your personal signature to your legacy. The endowment fund is held by the Edmonton Community Foundation.
Puppy SponsorshipSponsoring a future service dog is a great way for a company or group to show its connection to our community and its acceptance of people with physical disabilities. A corporate or group sponsorship can include:
- A framed photo of a future service dog to hang in your office
- The opportunity to name a puppy, one that you can follow throughout his training
- Your corporate logo embroidered on a dog’s training jacket worn throughout its training
- An informative presentation by Dogs with Wings Assistance Dog Society for your staff with your puppy and attendance at your company’s special events
- You will receive updates on the puppy’s progress and visits to your business when requested
- Your company linked on Dogs with Wings Assistance Dog Society web page
- An article in Dogs with Wings newsletter, The Canine Courier
- Invitations to our Graduation ceremony when the dog is formally matched with a client. Your company will be introduced as a corporate sponsor
Sponsorships are available at differing levels reflecting different levels of financial support. We have a sponsorship program that’s right for every company or group! Contact John at 780.944.8011 to request more information on how this rewarding program can work for you.
Planned GivingPlanned charitable gifts are often larger than the gifts provided annually to a favourite charity. They tend to come from the assets you have accumulated and might include cash, property, valuable possessions, investments (stocks, bonds, mutual funds) or life insurance. With the advice of a professional advisor, your careful gift planning can help you to continue your annual giving, create donations that last through time and save taxes!
Current Gifts can include cash, securities and property. Deferred gifts can include wills, life insurance, RRSP/RRIF’s or residual gifts. Please, talk with your financial planner, your lawyer or the professionals at Edmonton Community Foundation to make sure that your interests and wishes are carried out.
Gifts Other Than MoneyOften, our special events have a fundraising component. Can you donate an item to be given as a raffle prize, or an auction item? Can you host or hold a fun company event and donate the proceeds?
Puppy SuppliesWe are always in need of towels, sheets, blankets, newspapers, poop bags, etc.
