The Scratching PostA 501(c)(3) OrganizationVisit Site
The Scratching Post is a non-profit, no kill shelter for stray and abandoned cats. Located in Silverton, Ohio (a Cincinnati suburb), the shelter has been in operation since May of 1990. We are able to find homes for about 250 cats per year. We can house about 130 at a time and are usually at full capacity. A cat can only be accepted if we have the space, which since we are a no-kill shelter, means only if we've had an adoption. There are thousands each year we have to turn away. The only way to reduce this number is by spaying and neutering every cat possible until there are homes for them all.
- When ordering tickets, you will be asked to select an organization that your charitable contribution will help support.
If you don’t already have an organization in mind, please look through the list above.
- The charitable contribution value of your ticket purchase may be tax deductible. A charitable contribution is the amount you pay that is more than the value of the merchandise, goods or services received.
The proceeds of The Rusty Ball, less the expenses, will be disbursed among all Beneficiaries on a pro-rata basis determined by the percentage of ticket sales for each beneficiary.
Example: Organization #1 sells 5% of total tickets, 5% of The Rusty Ball's proceeds, after expenses, will be disbursed to Organization #1.
This does not include basket raffle, silent or live auction items that are donated for a specific organization. Proceeds from those items will go directly to the specific organization.
For example, Organization #1 submits Golf Clubs for Auction. They sell for $400 = $400 to Organization #1.
Your charitable contribution may or may not be tax deductible depending on which organization will ultimately receive the benefit:
A charitable contribution to a 501(c)(3) organization is a tax-deductible donation.
A charitable contribution to a NON 501(c)(3) organization is NOT a tax-deductible donation.
