About Client Fundraising Donations
You can make a donation directly to EENP to support an assistance dog placement with Kasen Lacasse using this donation form. You will receive an email confirmation of your donation sent immediately, but the donation total and your name and comments may take up to an hour to update on the site. Your donation made on this page will offset the placement and training fees that EENP will charge for Kasen's placement. We will let Kasen and his family know that you made a donation and will keep them updated on the total amount raised, but will not share the amount of individual donations with them.
The placement and training fees that EENP charges for our assistance dog placements cover less than half of the cost to raise, train, and place an assistance dog and then support the placement for the life of the partnership. If donations are received in excess of Kasen's placement fees, those donations will go toward EENP's general operations, supporting the full cost of our placements with Kasen and other clients.
Eyes Ears Nose and Paws is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, and donations to EENP are generally tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. However, please note that donations made in support of a placement for a particular individual are generally NOT tax-deductible, per IRS guidance (see IRS Publication 526, page 6, column 2, "Contributions to Individuals", second bullet). If tax deductibility is important to you, please speak with your tax professional before donating to be sure that your donation is made in a way that meets your tax requirements.
