Thank You For Your Support!
Sage-ing International (SI) depends on its members’ generosity for much of our financial support. We especially count on that support to help us introduce new programs that require some time to mature and become fiscally self-sustaining (our goal for all SI programs). Your donations will be acknowledged by SI and are fully tax-deductible in the United States (outside the U.S., consult your tax advisor), as we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
There are several ways you can financially support SI. These include monthly (sustaining) or one-time contributions; Connie Goldman Scholarship Endowment Fund gifts; donations in honor of someone special to you; donations from Amazon based on your purchases under the Amazon Smile program; and charitable bequests. You can find more information on each of these opportunities and Giving Options below.
Sustaining or One-time Donations
Many of our members make either a one-time donation or a monthly (sustaining) donation each year. A sustaining donation (one that repeats monthly) is especially helpful for us in planning our activities for the coming year. You can make a donation now (see details below on Giving Options.), or if you prefer, you can fill out a donation pledge card now and make your donation in 2019. Donations received this year range from $20 to over $2000, as shown on the 2018 Donations listing.
Connie Goldman Scholarship Endowment Fund
To contribute to the Connie Goldman Scholarship Endowment Fund, the income from which is used to provide scholarship aid for SI programs to those needing a helping hand, please go to “Giving Options” below, indicate the contribution you wish to make, check the Tribute Gift box and enter “Connie Goldman” so we will direct your contribution correctly. We have received donations up to $1000 from many Sage-ing International members and many other Connie supporters, as shown on the Connie Goldman Scholarship Endowment Fund Donations page.
Donations in Honor of Someone
To make a donation in honor of a loved one or other special person, check the Tribute Gift box under “Giving Options” and enter the name of the person being honored, as directed.
Sage-ing International is a registered charitable organization with “Amazon Smile,” Amazon’s charitable program. If you use Amazon for shopping, Amazon Smile will donate ½ % of your purchase to SI. Simply go to Amazon Smile and select Sage-ing International as your designated charity in “My Account”. Then start all your Amazon shopping visits from that site. Amazon will periodically send SI a check based on all purchases made through this site that are designated to SI.
We encourage you to remember Sage-ing International in your will. Since wills are sometimes complex legal documents, we encourage you to talk with Sage-ing International about your plans, and consult your lawyer.
