Rose and I have opted out of the 501c3 status, but we have made it possible for those of you who need a tax receipt to go through one of our associates. For those of you who do not “itemize”, or do not “qualify” there are current “Gift Rules” with the IRS that will allow us to receive tax free gifts from you and these gifts will not be a tax burden to you. This is the reason checks are to be made out to “Rose & Lowèl Lewis”. ELA Missions’ Books will be open to our gifting partners for our accountability. Please check with your accountant or tax advisor if you have any concern. (Gifts must be under $13,000 USD per year for these gift rules to apply.) If you wish to receive a tax receipt simply write a check payable to: Friends of Good Shepherd International, Inc.* and mail it to our United States address listed below. A MEMO as to whom this donation is directed is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY! (See below*) Friends of Good Shepherd International, Inc. is a foundation associated with the Archbishop of Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies, but it may take as many as 60 days for us to receive your donation.
PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT OUR MINISTRY NEEDS FAR MORE THAN MONEY! PLEASE GO TO OUR SUPPORT PAGE AND READ MY THOUGHTS! (Click here)
For those of you who have no need of a tax receipt you have two options:
- You can donate using the “DONATE” button below (Paypal). It is also possible to make recurring donations that will be charged to your account in whatever amount you specify at monthly intervals, these recurring donations will continue until you cancel with Paypal.
- You may donate by using a check.
