Help the GVMA Foundation - Build your own Foundation

For all of Georgia's pets, The GVMA Foundation Fund for Companion Animals raises and dispenses funds for veterinary procedures when a pet owner cannot meet their financial obligations for care. Best of all, any GVMA member can utilize this fund.
However, thanks to a partnership with the Veterinary Care Foundation, you can now raise funds specifically for your veterinary practice and clients. Best of all, a portion of your sign-up/membership fee goes to the GVMA Foundation.  Start your foundation today!

How it works

Offering clients the ability to make tax deductible donations will encourage contributions to the practice. In addition, Veterinary Care Foundation provides the following with the annual membership fee:

  • Brochures
  • Ease of access for donating/accounting
  • Thank you letters/tax receipts
  • A program tailored to meet individual practice needs

The Veterinary Care Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable foundation created for the specific purpose of helping veterinary practices fund the discounted and no charge care they generously provide.

100% of all funds donated to the Veterinary Care Foundation  and its member practices go directly to improving the quality of life of pets and their people. All Foundation operating expenses are met by membership dues paid by veterinarians.

Donations to a Specific Veterinary Practice:

Funds donated to support an individual veterinary practice are earmarked only for use by that practice. Member veterinarians can request those funds based on the Charitable Guidelines listed below.

Charitable Guidelines - Use of Funds:

Foundation funds are intended for the following use:

  • Funding for Good Samaritian cases
  • Assist pet owners in financial crisis
  • Care for police/fire and service animals
  • Provide support to pets of families in crisis
  • Funding for pets harmed or displaced due to local disaster (such as weather, fire, etc)


Annual fees are paid to the Veterinary Care Foundation and are deductible as a business expense to the member veterinary practice. Becoming a member begins with the completion of a simple Member Application Form.
