Donations to The K9 Hero Portrait Project
501(c)(3) Nonprofit organization - EIN 46-2420850
The list of fallen K9 Heroes was growing every month, but during and now after the pandemic, we had to start turning handlers away due to lack of funds for the program. We know most of these heroes are not "trending", so it's not in the forefront of the communities' minds, but they'll always be on the minds of those who lost them.
Please consider a fully tax deductible donation to help cover the supplies, time, shipping/presentation costs that help bring those heroes back home again on canvas to the handlers and families who've lost them.
One Time Donations via PayPal --------->
We HATE to turn away a handler who just lost their partner and don't have a local community or department to support and sponsor their partner's tribute painting.
For $2, $5, $10, or $20 a month, you can help the K9HPP continue to paint the fallen K9 and equine heroes and give these lifelike tribute paintings to the handlers and families who've lost them.
Just one click, and you will make a HUGE difference!
Those who set up a monthly PayPal subscription during this campaign will get EXCLUSIVE access to hero work in progresses and studio-build in our new Facebook private group!
The K9 Hero Portrait Project is an IRS recognized Non-Profit 501(c)(3) organization. Our goal is to provide our nations law enforcement, military, and search and rescue canine handlers a painstakingly hand-painted portrait of their beloved K9 partner. To do this, we rely on donations by people who want to make a difference, as we do, in the lives of those who are sworn to protect us. We have several ways you can donate to keep this project going and help "Bring Home" the K9 partners of these men and women and their families.
K9 partners are never "equipment". The bond between the handlers and K9 runs so deep that many times only one person can only handle the dog in its career. We here at The K9 Hero Portrait Project understand this bond and feel it is our duty to provide these men and women with a powerful and meaningful legacy as a testament of those partnerships.
We have helped nearly 100 handlers and families of K9 heroes with providing a beautiful portrait of their K9 partners, some who were lost or killed in action. The number one response we receive when a portrait is presented? That we brought their partner back to them again.
Although we have stopped taking nominations, the wait list for a K9 Hero Portrait currently extends through the end of 2023. Each portrait takes an average of 125 hours to complete. This program cannot succeed without the necessary funding to cover the costs of materials, labor, shipping or transportation/hotel fees if the portrait is being presented in-person by the artist.
The K9 Hero Portrait Project relies on donations to cover the supplies, to pay our artist, the shipping and/or travel expenses to present these amazing hero portraits. Talk to any of the 100 handlers who have received their hero portraits, including the Embassy of France and members of the Royal Danish Air Force, and they will tell you that they feel forever indebted to those who helped bring their partner home to them again, on canvs.
