26 Mar Kindred Companions Memorial Fund Offers Way to Commemorate Pets Who Have Passed On
By Jodi Legge, WVMA Business Development Director
Losing a beloved pet is extremely difficult for families. The Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Foundation’s (WVMF) Kindred Companions Memorial Fund allows veterinary clinics and hospitals to fund a worthy cause while commemorating the lives of pets that have passed on.
With a donation of $10 or more in memory of the family’s pet, hospitals and clinics can provide some small comfort to those who have lost their cherished animal, while supporting the fundraising initiatives of the Foundation. Upon receiving the donation, WVMF will send a heartfelt, personalized card conveying sympathy for the family’s loss, letting them know a donation has been made in memory of their pet.
All donations are 100 percent tax-deductible and will allow the Foundation to fund programs helping animals, people and communities throughout Wisconsin.
Foundation priorities include programs for veterans and their pets, disaster relief assistance for animals during natural or man-made disasters, pet care education programs, and scholarships for veterinary medical students. The Foundation Board will award funds several times per year to worthy non-profit service organizations. Grant applications can be found on the WVMF website at www.wvmfoundation.org.
