Canine Castaways receive $11,908.59 from the Lillian J. Adams Fund for Animal Welfare

Lillian Adams passed away in 2011 but her legacy lives on in yearly disbursements from the Lillian J. Adams Fund for Animal Welfare held at the Charlotte Community Foundation.  Lillian’s love of animals led her to set up a fund upon her passing to benefit animal welfare in perpetuity.

Every year, Canine Castaways receive one-third of a 4% distribution from the fund.   This year, Charlotte Community Foundation is thrilled to award to Canine Castaways a check in the amount of $11,908.59.  Canine Castaways is a rescue for small dogs that have been abandoned for various reasons and they provide no cost foster care and medical treatment.

Charlotte Community Foundation connects people who care with causes that matter throughout Charlotte County.  So far in 2016, more than $760,000 in grants has been awarded to support nonprofit organizations.  For more information on how you can establish a donor advised fund, or create a legacy fund through your will or estate plan, please contact Tami Sender, CEO at 941-637-0077.
