HOW YOUR DONATION HELPS - The Trust has no paid employees, and all Trustees of the Trust serve as volunteers. This means that almost 100% your donation goes into health research and surveys, with a very small reserve used for communication expenses in sharing information and fundraising expenses such as shipping of items from the auction. Every dollar you donate gets us one step closer to putting the puzzle pieces together as it pertains to cavalier health. Our goal is to allow your cavalier to spend a longer, healthier life loving you. We are a 501(c) (3) organization so all monetary donations are tax deductible to the extent that IRS allows. Simply put, we can't do it without you. Thank you so much for your support!


Here are some ways to help that you may not have thought of:

Matching Employer Programs: Many employers have Matching Gift programs which would double your donation. Ask! You can also scroll down to see if your company does match donations!

Donations in Memoriam: We accept donations of gifts in memoriam of a family member, valued friend, or pet.

Direct Gift of Appreciated Securities: This method conserves the donor’s cash while helping to avoid capital gains tax on the sale of appreciated securities. The market value of the securities is deductible in the current year’s tax return. The donor should consult with their tax advisor.

Direct Gifts of Life Insurance: If you have a life insurance policy that is no longer required, transferring the policy to the ACKCSC Charitable Trust may provide benefits to both The Trust and the donor. The Trust would ultimately collect the policy value and the donor may be entitled to an income tax deduction in the amount of the policy’s value. The donor should consult with their tax advisor.

Wills: The donor may list The ACKCSC Charitable Trust as a beneficiary in their will. The distribution of the estate is then made at the donor’s death.

Jeanne Eklund

Jeanne Roberts Eklund, (1941-2022)

Jeanne Eklund passed away on September 20, 2022, she was 81.
Jeanne’s television career has been a beacon of light for women who aspire to work on the technical side behind the camera. In 1962, she was hired by WPTV in West Palm Beach as an Assistant Photographer, an assistant still photographer. She observed that control room work was more interesting and paid better, but women were not considered for these jobs. She was told more than once, “…if you were a man we would hire you.” Which finally happened In 1966, after she moved to Miami and landed a job with a start-up independent TV station, WCIX-TV, where she covered all production functions from floor crew to director. She took great pride in getting other women hired and trained in control room work after a few years of proving that women were more than capable to handle technical responsibilities in television.  In 1973, she was hired by WTVJ as a Master Control Operator, the only woman working in the operational areas of Engineering and Production. During her WTVJ tenure, she worked on such award-winning programs as The Ralph Renick Report, Montage and PM Magazine.
In 1984, she and Glen Eklund, were married, on February 29, Leap Day, on their lunch hour.
In 1986, they moved to Sarasota and WWSB. Jeanne’s responsibility was to work with the staff and “teach television”. The move back to smaller market was similar to her days at startup WCIX. Unlike WCIX, WPTV and WTVJ, there actually were women in the control room! While at WWSB, Jeanne won awards including a NATPE Iris Award and was nominated for an Emmy.
In 1996, Jeanne returned to Miami and worked part-time for WTVJ.  In 2006, she was welcomed into the NATAS‘ Silver Circle, for 25 years of dedication to the television industry of South Florida.
“You may not remember what Jeanne said, or did, but you’ll always remember how she made you feel.”  She is survived by husband Glen, wonderful daughter Ingrid and son-in-law Mike, and their sons and wives, Sean and Leah, Kevin and Rachael. And Jeanne’s son Todd and his two daughters, Sasha and Sophie.
