You Get What You Give!
Giving to a cause or work that helps change lives is a great way to help source a whole new way of experiencing life on planet Earth. Some like giving a percentage of their income as a way to give back and help others. Pledging $5 to $10 per month or more to the Shamanic Astrology Mystery can make a huge difference in helping us to maintain and expand our infrastructure!

Reason for Donation?

We are also initiating a Scholarship Fund to help cover tuition for those who are seeking certification as a Shamanic Astrologer but find they do not have the financial resources to pay for all the courses. We are creating Full and Partial Scholarships that will be available through an application process.

If you would like to donate to the Scholarship fund there are several options. You can let us know where you would like the funds you are donating to go. You may want to donate to the Scholarship fund only, or you may want the funds to go where they are most needed, or you may want to do both. Be sure to indicate your preference when you are making your donation.

If you don’t have money to donate, but still want to contribute, the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School is looking for volunteers to help with outreach, marketing and other projects.

Appreciated Securities
Any gift of appreciated securities, including mutual funds, (that have been active for at least one year) can be donated to SAMS without incurring capital gains tax. The deduction is the fair market value of the stock on the day you make the gift. Such gifts are fully deductible up to 30% of your adjusted gross income; any excess can be carried over for five additional years.

Another planned gift opportunity is naming the Shamanic Astrology Mystery in your will or living trust. Contributing to the School through a bequest is a wonderful way to support our programs and services while, at the same time, reducing your estate taxes.

Life Insurance
By naming the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School as owner and irrevocable beneficiary, you can contribute an existing or newly purchased life insurance policy and receive a tax deduction for a portion of your gift. Additional deductions can be taken by making gifts to cover the cost of premiums. Alternatively, you may wish to name the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School as a contingent beneficiary, to receive the proceeds if the primary beneficiary predeceases you. If proceeds come to the School, your estate will receive an estate tax deduction for the gift.

Getting The Most From Your Retirement Plan
If you are required to withdraw more than you need from your retirement plan this year, you may wish to give the excess amount to the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School. By doing so you will be entitled to a tax deduction, partially offsetting the tax you owe on the withdrawal.

Please contact our managing director at if you would like to donate via any of the above options including:
Appreciated Securities, Bequests, Life Insurance or Retirement Fund or some other way we haven’t listed.

Thank you so much for your support in whatever you choose, including volunteering, or a financial contribution, or both.
