Include the Tibetan Terrier Health and Welfare Foundation in Your Estate Plan
Since its establishment in 2007 by the Tibetan Terrier Club of America, the Tibetan Terrier Health and Welfare Foundation has provided grants to fund the rescue of Tibetan Terriers across the United States and to fund vital research to address diseases affecting the breed. To fund this important work, the Foundation relies exclusively on generous contributions from TTCA members and other donors. That’s why it’s important to consider taking steps to ensure your love for Tibetan Terriers may carry on after you pass away by including the charitable Foundation in your estate plan. In fact, once you have made essential provisions in your will for the care of your own Tibetan Terriers upon your death, adding a gift to the Tibetan Terrier Health and Welfare Foundation to your estate plan is an ideal way to leave a legacy of support for our breed.
