TEXAS VETERINARY MEDICAL FOUNDATION
TVMF Latest News
Watch your mail for information on TVMF’s Buck-A-Year Program, which is an annual gift campaign that every veterinarian can afford. Contributions made to the Buck-A-Year Program fund grants to the Texas A&M University Veterinary Medical Scientist Research Training Program. TAMU’s research program ensures that veterinary students will continue to be introduced to research and the benefits research has on the profession and the practice of veterinary medicine.
With less than a month remaining in the calendar year, now is a good time to assess your income tax situation. Gifts to a qualified nonprofit organization such as TVMF made before the end of the year may provide you with a needed tax deduction while benefiting the profession of veterinary medicine. Gifts can be contributed in the form of check or credit card. Securities (stocks, bonds or mutual funds) that have appreciated in value or tangible assets, such as real estate or personal goods and services, are also accepted by the Foundation. Deferred gifts, such as charitable gift annuities, can fulfill the dual purpose of providing future assistance to a Foundation project or program while achieving tax benefits and estate planning objectives for the donor.
For more information on planned giving, please call TVMF at 512/452-4224.
TVMF Rooster Roast Fundraiser
What is the Rooster Roast Fundraiser you ask? Why should you purchase one of these smoked-to-perfection chickens?
We are raising money for the TVMF PALS program, which benefits pets of Meals on Wheels and More of Austin's homebound and elderly clients, like Stevers here, by providing them much-needed veterinary care.
Stevers provides his owner with unconditional love, companionship and a fluffy cuddle partner who keeps her warm and safe each night.
Stevers recently visited Dr. Mouser of North Austin Animal Hospital and received a clean bill of health, but he is in need of some major dental work to relieve him of the pain he feels when he eats.
Please support the efforts of TVMF PALS by ordering your chicken today so that pets like Stevers will continue to live long healthy lives!
