The Legacy of Margaret W. Pratt

An overwhelming love for dogs and a commitment to the betterment of their health through scientific research – this is the enduring legacy of Margaret W. Pratt.

As a supporter of the AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) since 1998, Pratt knew that research focusing on canine health was important, particularly for her favorite breed, Miniature Schnauzers. That’s why she chose to leave a portion of her estate to CHF.

“CHF is grateful for Ms. Pratt’s generous bequest. Making an estate gift to CHF is a wonderful opportunity to continue your commitment to the Foundation’s mission to prevent, treat and cure canine diseases,” said Bradford Brady, Director of Development & Communications. “Even if you’ve already written your will, adding CHF to your list of beneficiaries can be simple, and will make a lasting difference for dogs.”

Through Pratt’s bequest, a request for research proposals (RFP) to address the health of Miniature Schnauzers has been released. Her gift will provide substantial funding for canine health research and will have a lasting impact on generations of dogs. Grants awarded through the Pratt estate gift RFP will be announced later this year.

Margaret W. Pratt is a member of CHF’s Heritage Society, which honors donors who have given, or who have made a commitment to give, a planned gift. If you are interested in leaving a legacy that will truly impact the health of dogs, please consider joining CHF’s Heritage Society.
