Year-end Giving

Consider a gift to KSDS for your tax deductible year-end giving.  Remember, if you are 70.5 or older, you may make a contribution from your IRA account to KSDS and avoid paying income tax on that distribution.  The new tax reform made this permanent.

Sponsor an Assistance Dog Team

Each facility, guide or service team is valued at $25,000.  You or your company can support a team providing items like housing, training, veterinary care, equipment, travel and other related expenses.  In return, your name will be added to the Team Sponsorship plaque displayed at KSDS and you or your company will be recognized in our KSDS newsletter.

Sponsor a Puppy or a Litter

KSDS names each litter by a theme (example-the Wine litter).  This helps to prevent the use of common names that may be repeated.

A litter may be sponsored for $10,000.  You would choose the litter theme and the names of each puppy fitting that theme.  A puppy can be sponsored for $1,000.  You would choose the name of the puppy.  Most likely, this would be a single puppy from the North American Breeding Cooperative (ABC).


Planned Giving

As a 501(c)(3), KSDS depends on the generosity of it’s donors who contribute so that the ultimate recipient, a KSDS graduate, may receive a trained assistance dog at no cost.

You can help ensure that future generations will benefit from the services of KSDS Assistance Dogs, Inc. by including KSDS in your estate planning.  It’s also known as “planned giving” and there can be significant tax saving benefits with this type of gift.  Speak to your tax adviser or investment broker to discuss the gift type that matches your family’s philanthropic goals and ensures a solid future for KSDS and the individuals we serve.

What better way to thank the people or organizations that have made an impact on your life, than to make a contribution from your estate?  This option makes a lasting statement about your values in life.

Examples of planned giving methods are wills, charitable bequests, revocable living trusts, life insurance proceeds, IRA and other retirement plans, charitable remainder trusts, bank accounts including certificates of deposits, brokerage accounts and similar property through “Pay on Death” or “In Trust For” designations.


Donations made honoring/memorializing someone (or a special pet) will be mentioned in our newsletter.  If you give us the contact information for that person being honored or the family of the memorial, we will send an acknowledgement card to them.

Donor Advised Fund

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes.  DAF Direct gives you easy and direct access to one of the most convenient ways to give.
