You are our most important resource and strongest partner. Show your love by giving a tax deductible donation to help Cairns live a healthy life.
Donate Today to Help Us Help Cairns

The Foundation’s funding comes completely from individual donations. Without your support we could not help our Cairns. Your donation will help the Foundation of the Cairn Terrier Club of America fight for cures of medical diseases afflicting our Cairns. Please join us and give what you are able – any amount is appreciated and will help our dogs. All donations are tax-deductible.


Your support will enable us to:

  • Invest in medical research

  • Underwrite additional health clinics

  • Help breeders to produce healthier Cairns

Our mission is to further the understanding of the diseases, defects, injuries and other ailments that affect Cairn Terriers; to support and promote study and research on the history, character, varieties, breeding, genetics and particular health problems of Cairn Terriers; to produce, publish, and distribute to the public educational materials about the care, treatment, breeding, health, development and training of Cairn Terriers.

If you would like us to do so, please fill out the Honor or Memorial Gift Form online, or, print the PDF form and send it along with your check.

Give the Gift of Stock

One of the most advantageous ways to contribute to the Foundation is through a gift of stock. Making a gift of securities is simple and offers a number of valuable benefits. You can give stocks to the Foundation simply by transferring them into our account. If you wish to donate stock, please email our Treasurer at

Employer Gift Matching

Making Your Gift Go Further! Did you know the value of your gift can be doubled? Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable donations made by their employees. If your employer sponsors a matching program, please leverage your support: request a matching gift form from your employer, and send the completed and signed form to the address below with your donation. We will do the rest.
