What is a Legacy Gift?
A legacy gift is a donation to a nonprofit, like Paws for Purple Hearts, made in your last will and testament. This gift can be property, cash, or a percentage of your estate. A legacy gift to Paws for Purple Hearts ensures that you will continue to honor our Warriors for years to come.
As Paws for Purple Hearts does not receive any government funding, without the support of our community, we would be unable to share the healing power of Service Dogs-In-Training with Veterans who are struggling to overcome adversity.
Did you know you could leave 1% of your assets in your will to Paws for Purple Hearts? This means that your family still gets 99% and establishes a legacy of philanthropy for future generations for years to come.
How does a legacy gift help?
A gift in any amount goes a long way in ensuring the stability and growth of Paws for Purple Hearts’ programs in the coming years.
A gift of $2,500 ensures a future Service Dog has all the treats, toys, care and vaccines it needs to ensure they are happy and healthy.
A gift of $5,000 provides twenty-five sessions of Canine-Assisted Warrior Therapy®. This immersive therapeutic intervention teaches Veterans how to reinforce commands for a Service Dog that will be placed with their wounded comrade-in-arms.
Legacy gifts also help in the growth of our organization. Through a generous gift of will, our Southeast team was able to purchase a minivan to ensure the safe transportation of our Service Dogs-In-Training to places like the Richmond VA Medical Center, and the Hampton VA Medical Center where our team provides social therapy to help reduce anxiety and promote positive thinking for Warriors in stressful situations.
