The Idaho Humane Society is grateful for the lifesaving long-term support of our legacy gifts… it truly saves lives! 

Lives changed thanks to gifts like yours

Start an Endowment Fund: 
Lifesaving Fund

Establishing a named endowment fund will help support the Idaho Humane Society’s mission today, and additionally preserve it well into the future, over many lifetimes. Donors joining this funding level at $25,000 or more may honor the fund for a pet, the donor, family, friends, a company, etc.

IHS Endowment Fund:
The Charlie Bear Wilson Veterinary Fund

Inspired by the memory of a beloved pet, an Australian Shepherd named Charlie Bear, Barbara Wilson made a gift to create a named endowment at the Idaho Humane Society. The endowment provides an annual distribution to support veterinary care of pets belonging to low-income pet owners.

IHS Endowment Fund:

Norm Gross devoted all of his time and efforts in his retirement to the Idaho Humane Society. Norm established the Idaho Humane Society “Easy Fund” to provide support to dogs in need of veterinary care belonging to either low-income households or shelters and rescues.
