In 2004 the Mastiff Club of America formed the Mastiff Club of America Charitable Trust which is a 501(c)3 Charitable Organization set up to financially support health programs and allows our donations to be fully tax deductible, charitable contributions as allowed by law. No donation is too small and every dollar makes a difference to the health of our Mastiffs!
WE CARE ABOUT THE HEALTH OF ALL MASTIFFS
The Mission of the MCOA Charitable Trust is to raise money to fund important health research projects for health issues that face our beloved breed and to financially support educational health seminars, discounted health clinics and other health programs that will help Mastiffs. Our Breed represents a wide variety of Mastiffs, including show dogs, working dogs, family pets and rescues...
To accomplish this Mission, the MCOA Charitable Trust utilizes special fundraisers and solicits direct donations from individuals, dog clubs, organizations, and various companies, etc...

|DESIGNATED CYSTINURIA ACCOUNT
We encourage everyone to make their donations to the MCOA Charitable Trust’s General Fund which allows more flexibility in funding a variety of health projects and allows the funds to be used where they are needed most. If you would like to donate funds directly for Cystinuria Projects, the MCOA Charitable Trust has set up a special designated Cystinuria Account. When a DNA Test for Cystinuria becomes available for Mastiffs any remaining funds in the Cystinuria Restricted Account will be used towards discounted Cystinuria DNA Clinics and to help fund other health research projects as needed. To support Cystinuria research and outreach programs please indicate in the memo section of your checks that the donation is for the “Cystinuria Account”.
