Honorary and Memorial Donations

    image

The League is very proud to present to its contributors two brand-new options for greeting cards that were designed exclusively for honorary and memorial donations made to support our community animal care programs.  These cards—with illustrations donated by highly esteemed, DC-based artist Carol Hilliard—will both touch and impress the person with whom you wish to communicate.

The League is offering these cards through its all-new Unconditional program for special-occasion giving, because your love, like theirs, is just that.  And these endearing cards will help you express those feelings.

We have two options available:

Donations in Honor of Someone Special

Birthdays, wedding anniversaries, adoption anniversaries, Christmas, Hanukkah, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and graduations are perfect occasions to honor someone special (human or animal) with a contribution to the League.  A personalized card will be sent to notify your friend or loved one of your generous gift.

How the Program Works

To make an honorary or memorial donation, please complete the online donation form using a credit card or contact the Development Office at 202-375-7756 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).  As a default, the card with preprinted messages both outside and inside will be used. Let us know if you would like to use an Unconditional card without preprinted messages to fulfill your order. We also have a basic-option card that shows only the League logo and with no preprinted text inside.

Our Exclusive Cards

Carol is an Emmy Award-winning art director and illustrator of children’s books and she has generously donated exclusive use of these designs to the League’s new Unconditional program for special-occasion contributions. We thank her very much for these fabulous illustrations!

“I was thrilled when the League asked me to undertake this project and am equally happy to know that these cards will be sent and received by people who care as much about animals as I do,” Carol says.  “But what is most gratifying is knowing that the charitable gifts made for sending the Unconditional cards will help so many cats and dogs.”

Permanently Commemorate a Loved One

image  Contributions of $1,000 or more are recognized by a brass-finished plaque on our Honorary/Memorial wall in the League’s headquarters. Please indicate your inscription up to three lines, 25 characters per line, including spaces. Be sure to complete the daytime phone number field so we may call you when your plaque is ready.

A League plaque is a wonderful, elegant tribute to a loved one, living or deceased, and would be an excellent gift for a birthday, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, bar/bat mitzvah, or for memorializing a loved one who has passed away.

Pavers set into the sidewalk in front of the shelter are available for donations of $2,500 or more.

Other Options

Honor Yourself
On your birthday, Christmas, or some other special occasion, give a gift to animals in need.  In lieu of presents, ask your friends and family to donate to the League in your name.  We will provide a list of donors to you but not provide individual amounts donated.  For information, please contact the Development Office at 202-375-7756 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
