Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company (or your spouse's company) has a matching gift policy, please check with your Human Resources department. The impact of your gift to Good Shepherd may be doubled or possibly tripled!
This option is sometimes referred to as gift planning or legacy giving. It is a way to support Good Shepherd using a variety of giving vehicles such as a Bequest, Charitable Lead Trust, Charitable Remainder Trust, Gift Annuity, and Life Insurance. Additionally, some planned giving methods may provide income or tax relief to you.
This is a gift option where you can commit to giving a certain dollar amount, but it allows you to make a payment on a later date or set up a series of installments payments. Please contact Laura Cole, Director of Advancement, to complete a pledge form, at 214-432-1439.
