Planned giving is a way in which you can give to W.A.G.S. 4 Kids by including us in your overall estate or financial plan. Doing so could also provide you with immediate or future tax benefits. Planned giving opportunities include will bequests, charitable remainder trusts, a charitable lead trust, and/or a beneficiary designation of a life insurance policy. We recommend that you consult your tax advisor, financial advisor, or your attorney to determine which strategy is best suited for your individual situation.
Working Animals Giving Service for Kids is unlike any other service dog training organization.
Your bequests and life income gifts help W.A.G.S. 4 Kids empower the youth with disabilities of Northeast & Central Ohio through the partnership of a mobility service or autism spectrum service dog trained by the inmates of Grafton & Mansfield Correctional Institutions who learn all the lessons of a way to live better.
Because of your charitable giving:
No need for parents to uproot their family, spend thousands of dollars traveling thousands of miles to a training facility to receive a service dog. We start in the home and we never leave. Your family is our family—because all a family should worry about is helping their child.
Children with special needs and their families are empowered physically, mentally, emotionally and more through the partnership of a custom trained mobility service or autism service dog. Because every child deserves a friend for life.
ODRC Apprentices are certified as Service Dog Trainers, provided training, education, and technical assistance as part of the ODRC’s Offender Workforce Development. The workshop is designed to enhance the employability of individuals with a criminal history.
100% of W.A.G.S. 4 Kids funding comes from individual contributors and local partnerships , so W.A.G.S. 4 Kids has the freedom to focus on what matters most— empowering children with special needs regardless of their financial situation.
