“The loss of Sam and Sophie was more difficult for us than we ever imagined. We wanted to create some type of legacy, in their names, to help continue spreading joy like they did when they were alive,” say their guardians, who wish to remain anonymous.
The memory of these two beautiful dogs has been immortalized by their guardians through the establishment of the Sam & Sophie Endowment Fund.
Creating an endowment fund is a unique and impactful way to support the Edmonton Humane Society (EHS). Endowment funds are set up through an initial lump sum gift of cash to the endowment principal. Then the gift provides support in perpetuity to the organization, in this case the Edmonton Humane Society, through its annual dividends.
Each year, the Sam & Sophie Endowment Fund will support homeless, neglected, and abandoned companion animals at the Edmonton Humane Society until they can find their new families.
The love Sam and Sophie felt from their guardians will now be shared in perpetuity with thousands of animals, which is the greatest legacy anyone can share. Our heartfelt thanks to Sam and Sophie’s guardians for helping EHS enrich the lives of the people and pets we serve, just as Sam and Sophie did for them.
