Several people have asked how they can contribute to Good Shepherd. Donations can be weekly, monthly, quarterly, or even once a year. There are several ways to do so, depending on which is easiest for you.

 

Personal check

  • Drop it in the offering plate

  • Mail it to

Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd

4530 Acton Hwy

Granbury TX 76049

 

Credit or debit card through the church’s web site

  • The church’s web site is www.goodshepherdgranbury.org. Click on the yellow button on the right side of the screen that says, “Donate,” and follow the instructions.

  • Donations can be one-time or marked to be recurring.

 

Credit card, debit card, or bank draft through text messaging

  • In the Messages app on your smart phone, text “GSG” to 73256. (73256 spells Realm, the name of our software provider.)

  • Donations can be one-time or marked to be recurring.

  • You’ll have the option to donate an additional amount to help cover the cost of text processing fees.

 

Direct transfer from investment funds

Individuals age 70 1/2 and older can distribute otherwise taxable traditional and Roth IRA amounts directly to certain tax-exempt charities.  These distributions are called qualified charitable distributions (QCDs).  They are federal income tax-free to the donor and qualify as your RMD for the year of distribution.  Obtain the advice of your tax and/or financial professional to see if this tax-saving opportunity fits your particular situation.
