The Independence Society—A tradition of giving

Independence Society members belong to a distinctive family of generous and compassionate friends of Canine Partners for Life. Members make an annual leadership commitment of $1,000 or more to support CPL’s general operations during our fiscal year. Many choose to contribute their support via automated monthly giving.

Members receive special invitations to exclusive member events throughout the year, and are also invited to provide ongoing feedback and guidance pertaining to the future of CPL.

We are incredibly grateful to our 2016–17 Independence Society members for their belief in our mission!

The following list was created based on general operating gifts made July 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016.
