Other ways to Donate:
A gift of cash (most often made by check) is the most popular type of charitable gift. A contribution on a credit card can be deducted when the charge is made even though the bill is not paid until a later time. You can donate by credit card online. Click on the icon listed on our homepage.
More than 1,000 corporations and businesses now have programs to match employee gifts of cash either in whole or in part. In some cases, gifts from spouses, directors and retired employees are matched. We urge you to explore this possibility as it can double or, in some cases, triple a gift. Ask your employer about it.

A contribution of long-term appreciated assets to Watchful Shepherd USA entitles you to an income tax charitable contribution deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities at the time of the gift. Charitable gifts of certain property assets will provide greater tax benefits than cash gifts of equivalent value. And you avoid capital gains tax on any appreciation of those securities. Gifts of appreciated assets are fully deductible to the extent allowed by current tax law. Please contact Wayne Russo at Pittsburgh Financial Consultants at 724-731-0120 or email at email@example.com for information on how to affect your gift of securities.
GIFT OF CLOSELY HELD STOCK
A business owner who contributes closely held stock held for more than a year is allowed a charitable contribution deduction for the full fair market value of the stock. An extra benefit is that the donor will escape the potential capital gains tax on any appreciation in the stock value.
An endowed gift is one in which the original principal is never invaded; the gift exists in perpetuity.
The Abundant Endowment Program is a state of the art arrangement that utilizes well-known insurance carriers and other sound financial organizations to create significant funds for Watchful Shepherd USA that could not be raised in any other way. Its objective is to develop a fast new source of funding with no dollar investment from Watchful Shepherd or any Donor and to provide a source of significant new funds to Watchful Shepherd. For more information about this unique opportunity, please call Wayne Russo at Pittsburgh Financial Consultants at 724-731-0120 or contact via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All gifts contribute to the many vital activities of the organization, including purchasing equipment, providing community services and assisting a child/family therapy.
Together, you and the Watchful Shepherd USA can give children and their families hope and a future without violence.
