A Legacy of Health

Including the Westie Foundation of America, Inc. (WFA) in your will or trust is a meaningful way to help improve the health of all West Highland White Terriers and to educate breeders, pet owners, and veterinarians.  Many of our research grants and educational services have been made possible by individuals who had the foresight to include the WFA in their estate plans.

Ways You Can Give Through a Will or Trust:

  • Leave a specific dollar amount or asset to the WFA.
  • Designate a percentage of your estate to be given through your will or living trust.
  • Give only the remainder, or residue, of your estate, or that which remains after bequests to loved ones have been made.

A bequest to the WFA may take different forms, including:

  • An outright gift of cash
  • Securities
  • Personal property

The following is an example of suggested language you may wish to consider:

“I give and bequeath to the Westie Foundation of America, Inc., EIN 06-1473645, a not-for-profit corporation, with corporate address presently at 428 Hedgecroft Dr., Seabrook, TX 77586, the sum of $______, or _______% of my estate, to be used for the accomplishment of its general purpose (for a specific purpose as indicated)”.

You may designate your bequest in two ways:

  • For the general purposes of the WFA (an unrestricted bequest)
  • To be used to support a particular program (a restricted bequest)
