Donating through a donor-advised fund to Exceptional Sidekick amplifies your philanthropic impact, allowing you to actively support our mission of providing service dogs to disabled teens and young adults. By leveraging your donor-advised fund, you can change the life of a teen or young adult struggling with their mental health.
