The ACVS Foundation has several methods of giving that may be of interest to you.

Planned Giving

A planned gift to the ACVS Foundation can provide the resources to continue to create extraordinary advances in veterinary surgery and animal health care. There is a variety of philanthropic strategies that you can consider such as leaving a portion of your estate to the ACVS Foundation or naming the ACVS Foundation as a beneficiary of charitable gifts or a life insurance policy. Planned gifts help secure the ACVS Foundation’s future support of education and research.

To learn more about planned giving, please review A Guide to Giving or contact the ACVS Foundation at 301-916-0200, ext. 110.

Honor a Mentor Program

Undoubtedly, there is an ACVS Diplomate who has been influential in your life. This feeling is likely shared by others within the ACVS.

Pet and Equine Memorial Program

The loss of a beloved pet can be one of life’s difficult experiences for a family. A memorial card from the ACVS Foundation can show them just how much you understand and empathize with their loss.

You can let your clients know that they put their animal in both skilled and caring hands. The Pet and Equine Memorial Programs allow you or your practice to enhance relationships with clients and referring veterinarians and support the ACVS mission to advance surgical care for all animals.

When you choose to make a monetary donation to memorialize a patient, a memorial card is sent from the ACVS Foundation within ten business days of receiving your donation. At your discretion, we will also send a memorial card to the referring veterinarian. The cards will never reveal the amount of your donation.

Donate online to the Pet and Equine Memorial Program or download the form to pay by mail or fax.

Fundraising Event at the ACVS Surgery Summit

The Foundation’s largest fundraising event, Celebration of Surgical Success, takes place annually in conjunction with the ACVS Surgery Summit.  This event includes a silent auction and a raffle. All proceeds support the ACVS Foundation’s valuable work to improve the healthcare of animals and the research and educational mission of the ACVS.

Pledged, Recurring Giving Program

The ACVS Foundation Pledged, Recurring Giving Program is simple and convenient. Distribute your pledged gift across monthly installments that fit more easily into your budget. Complete the pledge donation form and email or mail it to the ACVS Foundation and we will take care of the rest!

Create an Educational or Surgical Endowment

Providing the best in veterinary surgery education remains a mission of ACVS and the ACVS Foundation. What was once perceived as impossible in the surgical care of animals has now become a reality, in large part because of the education and training of ACVS Diplomates. Consider creating an educational endowment to ensure that ACVS can continue to provide the best education in veterinary surgery and allied medicine. Additionally, endowments can be established for veterinary surgical research or ACVS Surgery Summit educational programing (seminars, laboratories, and continuing education speakers).  For more information about creating an endowment, contact the ACVS Foundation Program Coordinator, Scott Litten, at 301-916-0200 x110, slitten@acvs.org.
