Commemorative giving

Participating in AVMF Commemorative Giving program is a charitable way of showing others how much you care.


Are you interested in donations coming to the AVMF in honor or in memory of someone? Please state in the obituary that gifts can be made online at or sent to:
1931 N Meacham Ave, Suite 100
Schaumburg, IL 60173
*If you write a check, please put the name of the person in the memo line.

Please email us ( of your plans so we can send you the names of those who donate so you can also thank them. We will send a thank you letter to anyone who makes a gift and reference the person in whose honor/memory the gift was made.

Send a card to memorialize a colleague, friend or loved one. These personalized cards are also a way to show compassion for the loss of a client’s pet. Your donation of $10 per card will not only express your sentiment, but it will also support programs that help veterinarians help animals. AVMF will mail the cards on your behalf.
