Planned Giving

Your planned gift makes a difference

Join our family of legacy donors who add bequests in their wills to support the Clackamas Dogs Foundation. With your planned gift, we can enhance and expand services for Clackamas County dogs and their human families. We offer vital, extended services to our local shelter, including low-income spay/neuter programs, emergency veterinary care, training sessions to support dog adoptability, and volunteer recruitment and training.

Why is planned giving important?

When your remember a gift in your will to Clackamas Dogs Foundation, you make a lasting investment in your own Clackamas community. Your generosity honors your values and love for dogs, and propels us forward to advance dog welfare. Our dogs enrich our lives – a planned gift enriches the lives of dogs after we’re gone.



Who can make a legacy gift?

Anyone who has taken the important step of creating a will can make a planned gift. Large or small, your decision to leave a gift to assist dogs makes a positive difference in our community. If you need help creating a will, contact your attorney and financial adviser


Who controls how much I give?

You do! When you make your estate plan, you may include a financial gift of any size.  Making your bequest unrestricted to CDF ensures that your donation will meet our dogs’ greatest needs. You can simply name a specific amount or percent of your assets, and update your will to inform your estate executor.
