Your donations area always welcomed and greatly appreciated!  We couldn’t accomplish anything without the ongoing support of the Australian Shepherd Breed Community.  ASHGI is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization and will provide documentation of your gifts for your tax records.  Consult your tax professional for details on pertinent state and federal rules for deduction of charitable gifts.

ASHGI supporters can choose any of several methods of donating:

 Monetary Donations

Gifts in any amount are welcome.  Those who choose to donate $50 or more have the option of receiving a copy of the ASHGI Life Record.  These booklets make idea puppy packet items for new owners.  Click on “Litter Donation” at left if you’d like to receive multiple copies.

  • Unrestricted Gifts – An unrestricted gift gives ASHGI the flexibility to use the funds where they are most needed.
  • Restricted Gifts – Donors may restrict their gifts for use on a particular ASHGI program or for research on a particular disease.  Restricted funds will only be expended on the subject the donor has designated.  Please advise us on what you want your gift to support when you give, either by noting it on your check, in an accompanying note or letter, or by typing it into the description box for donations via PayPal.
