Ways to Help

Uniforms For The Unsponsored - $3,000

We currently have 212 children that are without sponsors and we need to raise the funds through one-time gifts to replace/repair uniforms for the children already enrolled and for the new children who currently do not have uniforms. In the past we have always had the additional funds to cover this expense but we are no longer able.  Until we raise the funds, these children will not have uniforms!

Thank you for your help!

Bedding For The Unsponsored - $3,500

We currently have 212 children that are without sponsors and we need to raise the funds through one-time gifts to replace bedding for the children already enrolled and for the new children who currently do not have bedding.

This is a crucial need for us many of the younger children are having to share beds and bedding.  Some of the older children are without blankets or pillows.

Thank you for your help!

 

Sanitation For Elementary School - $15,000

Can you help us provide basic sanitation for our elementary school children?  Right now our elementary children are having to use pit latrines and bath in the lake!  We are raising the funds to provide for the basic sanitary needs of over 250 children.  If we are able to raise the funds, we will build showers, toilets and sinks with running water.  

We have already raised the funds to bring the water up from the lake and to clean the water!

Help us end the health nightmare! 

Matching Gifts  

Other employers offer matching gifts for eligible charities.   You might be able to double or even triple your donation to GGCC USA through donation-matching options from your company.  Some companies also make monetary donations to match employees’ volunteer hours.  Check with your employer to see if any of these options are available to you.

 

Gifts of Stocks, Bonds, and Mutual Funds

Giving a gift of your eligible appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, and mutual funds)  offers a two-fold tax savings: a tax-deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift, and avoidance of capital gains taxes on the appreciation. You can thus leverage a larger donation than you could make with cash – and receive a larger tax benefit – by “buying low and giving high.”  Please contact James Gleghorn for more information.

 

Planned Giving

GGCC relies on prayers and contributions to meet today’s as well as tomorrow’s needs With prayerful consideration and tax-saving tools, a Planned Gift (sometimes known as a Legacy Gift) may help you multiply the impact of your donation beyond your lifetime.

Planned gifts are typically made through bequests in your will or estate plans to designate a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate to GGCC.  

Please contact James Gleghorn for more information   

 

Charitable Donations from IRAs

Under current IRS tax laws, for eligible tax years, individuals age 70½ or over could exclude up to $100,000 from gross income for donations paid directly to a qualified charity from their IRA.  Please check the details at the IRS website link or contact your financial advisor.  

 

Tribute Gifts

Make traditional gift-giving occasions particularly meaningful by helping children have healthier, happier futures. Whether it is Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, a birthday, a wedding, an anniversary, or another special occasion, consider asking those who are celebrating with you to give a donation to GGCC in lieu of gifts.

 

Memorial Gifts

Honor the memory and continue the legacy of a loved one who has passed away by making a gift in their name.  Such memorial gifts can be designated for a specific GGCC USA project or to the general operating fund of the ministry.

All memorial gifts will be acknowledged through a personal note to the family of your loved one.
