SHIM is thankful for the thousands of South Hills neighbors who choose to make a difference. SHIM relies on donations large and small to power its vital programs. As more neighbors rely on crucial services such as food pantries and utility assistance, SHIM is paving the way for neighbors like you to make a difference well into the future.
Here are a few ways that you can help SHIM work towards a future community where everyone can thrive:
• You can make a gift to SHIM and receive tax breaks by giving through an IRA Charitable Rollover. It’s an easy and tax-free benefit that allows you to avoid taxable income by contributing to SHIM directly from your retirement account.
• You can also make a planned gift that will provide you with income by setting up a charitable Gift Annuity. You can make a gift to SHIM now, receive a tax deduction, and get fixed annual payments for life if you are 50 or older.
• Lastly, you can leave your legacy in the South Hills community by bequeathing a percentage of your estate or a specific dollar amount. By including SHIM as a beneficiary, you ensure our ability to serve neighbors well into the future. It’s easy to include SHIM in your will or estate plan, life insurance policy, or retirement plan.
If you have already included SHIM in your philanthropic planning, we would love to know. Not only does it help us plan and strategize for the future, but it also allows us to better recognize your generosity today through Neighbors Forever, SHIM’s Legacy Society. Please contact Seth Dubin at 412-854-9120 ext 109 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also learn more here.
No one knows what the future holds, but you have the power to help your neighbors now and into the future with your generosity.
