Fund the Future
You can ensure the future health and happiness of pets and people in our Atlanta community with an endowment fund.
An endowment fund is a perpetual investment created by you. Your endowment will provide Atlanta Humane with future financial support while establishing an inspiring legacy. You can direct your endowment funds to support pets and their people, homeless dogs and cats, or the area of greatest need.
At Atlanta Humane, endowments are protected funds that are invested for long-term growth. Each year, a percentage of our endowments are distributed to provide much-needed support for our programs and services. By creating your own named endowment fund with a gift of $50,000 or more, you are making a decision that will have a ripple effect on the animals who pass through our shelters, our network of affiliates, community members, and families across our region.
There are many ways to make an endowment fund to support Atlanta’s animals. You could…
• Sustain an essential program or staff position by endowing it for the future
• Honor a family member, friend, or beloved pet through an endowed memorial fund
• Strengthen the foundation of Atlanta Humane by contributing to our general endowment fund
• Create a legacy funded during your lifetime by combining another donation with an endowed gift from your will or trust
Our pets give us the gift of support, compassion, and care. With you as our partner, we can create a legacy that will save pets and support the people who love them. To speak with our Strategic Philanthropy Team about starting an endowment fund, email Grace at [email protected].
