Cash  Donations and Giving

Cash Contributions

Gifts of cash are the most common form of giving. Outright gifts of cash to Can Do Canines are charitable contributions and qualify for deductions on your federal income tax return for those who itemize deductions.

Cash gifts are unrestricted to serve the greatest need of the organization. Cash gifts also may be used to establish a charitable trust or gift annuity, both of which provide you with a lifetime income, a significant income tax benefit and an opportunity to make a substantial deferred gift to us.
