The 2nd Matching Gift Challenge for $25,000.00 began at the beginning of November. As of 11/29/23, $18,336.00 has been donated! Thank you so much! Any donor can now dedicate their gift and send an e-card. Don’t forget that ISCOWP is a 501(c3) organization; your gift is tax-deductible EIN # 23-2604082.
The good news is that the standard deduction is now higher to account for inflation. The new threshold is 60 percent of AGI for cash contributions held for over a year. Those choosing not to itemize can still deduct their charitable gifts, with individual filers allowed $300 in donations and married couples up to $600.
Uncountable numbers of cows in the dairy and meat industries are living tortuous lives. You can help us give a peaceful and joyous life to a cow far from these industries when you adopt. You can adopt a cow for one year, ongoing, or a lifetime! All these adoption options are explained below. Whichever adoption option you choose, know that you are helping us care for and protect the cow of your choice from slaughter and a tortuous life. The ISCOWP staff and your adopted cow highly appreciate your love and support!
It costs the ISCOWP sanctuary an average of $500 to maintain a healthy cow for one year. The average lifespan of a cow is twenty years. Thus, maintaining a cow for its entire life costs $10,000. However, when $6,325.00 is placed in our fixed deposit, that will generate enough interest to maintain a cow for life. When the cow passes on, the funds remain in the ISCOWP account to maintain another cow in your name.
One Year Adoption has 3 donation options: 1) $501 one time, 2) $41.75 monthly subscription for 12 months, and 3) $125.25 quarterly subscription for 4 quarters. Ongoing Adoption has the same donation options, except your plan will automatically renew until you cancel. We can cancel for you at your request. Lifetime adoption is available with a one-time donation of $6,325.00, a yearly subscription donation of $1, 265.00 for five years, 12 quarterly subscription donations of $527.08, and a weekly subscription donation of $25 for 253 weeks.
All adopters receive an adoption certificate, a current cow photo, four video updates each year of adoption, and ISCOWP’s monthly e-newsletter via their email. You may visit your cow by making an appointment at least 48 hours in advance. Lifetime adopters receive yearly video updates for the lifetime of their cow. When lifetime donors give $1000 during one year, they receive an emailed video report of Arati blessings from Lord Giriraj and the cows for six years.
