The Goss Opera House is the heart of downtown Watertown because of the vision of Charles
Goss and the commitment of our community.

some heavy lifting we are always looking for support. Contact our Executive Director, Jamie Mack (firstname.lastname@example.org or 605-753-0200) to join our extraordinary army of
Gifts to the Friends of the Goss may be tax deductible. Gifts may include cash, stocks, bonds,
CDs, mutual funds or IRA rollovers. Donors may also make gifts of real estate such as land or a
home. Gifts of such items that have an appreciated value may offer some significant tax
advantages, such as avoiding capital gains tax and other benefits. Making a gift through your
estate plan is also an option. A “planned gift” may be as bequest in a will and is an important
tool for donors considering a future gift to the Friends of the Goss. A planned gift could also be a
sophisticated estate plan that provides the donor with tax and income benefits now.
Please contact our Executive Director, Jamie Mack (email@example.com or 605-753-0200) for more information about how you can support the Friends of the Goss.
