  • Pet Letter Program

    Diplomates – or other DVMs- can support the ACVO Vision for Animals Foundation by making contributions in memory of their patients. A personal letter is sent to each client notifying them of the gift in honor of their pet.

    Contributions can also be made in honor of clients, friends or family members.

Planned Giving

In planned giving, donors make charitable gifts that secure the future of the charity, and may financially benefit the donor through tax-saving benefits.

The ACVO Vision for Animals Foundation (VAF) welcomes planned gifts, which ensure we can continue to fund important research to eliminate ocular diseases that cause vision loss and suffering in animals.

Bequests are one of the simplest ways to make a planned gift. A bequest to the VAF can be in your will or a provision in your living trust. Such gifts can be made in a specific amount, a percentage of your estate, from a life insurance policy or in the form of marketable securities.

We would be happy to explore these and other options with you. If you would like to learn more about planned giving options, please contact Jen Gazdacko at 401-780-0900 or
