Drs. Fassinger & Lee join mentors and colleagues with Legacy commitment
AAEP has been a cohesive link between members of a profession who are naturally independent so Dr. Jane Fassinger and Dr. John Lee view membership as an important part of their careers.
An estate gift for research
When horse owner Lynn Myers was three years old horses became a part of her life and her passion for them has not diminished over the years. Now as she plans her estate, she wants to provide not only for the animals in her care, but also for the welfare of all horses.
Legacy gift to benefit plight of world’s working equids
From her earliest days as a horse-crazy girl, Dr. Casey Gonda has been continually enriched by horses so it is only natural for her to want to give back to the animal that has provided so much joy throughout her life. Dr. Gonda and her husband, Les, who reside in Keswick, Va., have made such arrangements by pledging a portion of their estate to the AAEP Foundation and becoming members of its Legacy Society. Dr. Gonda recently discussed the couple’s bequest, which they earmarked specifically in support of Equitarian projects.
The Foundation supports programs I care about
As former chairman of the AAEP Foundation, Dr. Nat White helped set the course of the Foundation and now has chosen to ensure his continued commitment to the Foundation's mission. Dr. White, a member of the Foundation's Legacy Society with his commitment through his estate plans, is professor of surgery at Virginia Tech's Marion DuPont Scott Equine Medical Center.
A way to say thanks...
Dr. Bill Moyer, head of the Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences at Texas A&M University and AAEP Past President, understands the importance of mentors.
Legacy gift keeps the "circle of life" flowing in the equine community
Leaving legacy through an estate gift to the AAEP Foundation is Dr. Kathleen Anderson's way of making sure the special relationship between horse and human lives on. Dr. Anderson of Elkton, Md., is a member of the AAEP's Foundation Advisory Committee, Racing Committee and a former member of the board of directors. She is also an On Call spokesperson during live racing events.
