Understanding the PWCCA Charitable Trust Fund
The PWCCA Charitable Trust is a 501(c)(3) entity. Most contributions to the Trust are tax deductible for Federal Income tax purposes. The trust is comprised of three parts: The Miner-Eischmann Fund, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Health Fund and the General Fund. Although this trust is not regulated by the PWCCA, the funds generated do benefit the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Anyone can make a donation to the Charitable Trust. You may make your donations to the PWCCA Charitable Trust and send them to Adrienne K. Saffell, PO Box 33, Versailles, KY 40383, 859-873-6330, e-mail address: Anbsaffell@cs.com.
Pembroke Welsh Corgi Health Fund
The figurine was created by the collaborative efforts of well-known Corgi artist Art Smith and sculptor Ognian Yanakiev exclusively for the Charitable Trust. The Bronze Standing Corgi Figurine is numbered with a limited edition of 200. Each “Trustie” is a gift to individuals who donate a minimum of $350.00 to the Trust. Any amount is accepted. These donations are put into the General Fund. The bronze is approximately 7½”H x 9”L. A portion of this donation will be tax deductible for IRS purposes.
Some interesting donations have come about these past years. Friends of a graduate of a veterinary school recently made a donation to the Trust and gave the bronze to the new veterinarian as a graduation gift. The Trust made a donation of a bronze to the AKC Museum in St. Louis during the Award’s Banquet at the National specialty in 2005. This is the first corgi bronze that the museum had received. A group of corgi enthusiasts made a donation and used the “Trustie” on the new Veteran Memorial Trophy to be awarded at the PWCCA National specialty each year. There are many ways and reasons to make a donation.
The PWCCA makes donations yearly in memory of a deceased member of the PWCCA. Anyone wishing to make a donation in the memory of a loved one (human or canine) may do so. Your donation must include the name of the deceased individual and his or her kennel name if appropriate. Donors or honorees do not have to be members of the parent club. The name of the deceased (human or canine) will be mentioned on the Memorial page for a period of 1 year.
Donations made for this purpose are considered tax deductible. Donations and information are to be sent to Adrienne K. Saffell, PO Box 33, Versailles, KY 40383-0033, email:Anbsaffell@windstream.net or 859-873-6330.
