The Nana Heidi and Tawney Fund is an Endowment Fund which the YGRR Board established in 1991 to provide long term security for our program and the Goldens who will need our services in the future.
Gifts to the endowment fund will be accumulated until the fund grows to a size that will generate adequate investment revenue to assist in paying operating expenses. Until that time, all of the endowment is placed in cruelty free investment programs and all dividends are reinvested. In the event of an emergency, the Endowment Fund would be utilized.
YGRR invests in its own future by transferring funds from our operating account to the endowment each year. We encourage YGRR members and friends to help us build this fund which provides a security blanket for the Goldens of the future who will need our services.
Is there someone in your life having a special birthday, anniversary, or perhaps welcoming a new family member (human or canine!)? You can help them celebrate any joyous occasion with a gift to Yankee Golden Retriever Rescue recognizing this Golden lover. Holidays can also be a perfect time to pay tribute to a friend's or family member's love for Golden Retrievers. Your donation will be acknowledged with a gift card informing the person being honored of your generosity (no amount will be mentioned) and you will receive a thank you card from YGRR.
Or you may wish to remember someone who cherished a Golden during their lifetime or honor a special dog waiting at Rainbow Bridge with a memorial gift to YGRR. This heartfelt remembrance is also acknowledged with a gift card to the friends or the family you designate.
