A NEW EARTH:
The Angelus Community
The Angelus Community is a concept for a spiritually inspired and intelligently created community of country family and retirement residences, a cooperative organic community farm, and a retreat center to be developed in Little Sugarloaf Valley, Pennsylvania. The community will be created under the guidance of and partly for the benefit of establishing a future permanent home for the Mission of Angels Foundation.
The Angelus Community will also benefit the families who choose to live in peaceful harmony in an energy efficient, self-sustaining, self-supporting, and off-the-grid community of the future. We are, therefore, asking for future residents as well as others to consider contributing tax-advantaged financial support to the creation of this vision.
The Angelus Group LLC is currently in the planning stages to develop just such a community as identified in Ned Dougherty’s visions. Furthermore, the property located in Little Sugarloaf Valley, PA is exactly as Ned has described in his book.
It is anticipated that the property will be developed with single and separate ownership parcels to construct residential family and retirement homes, the cooperative organic community farm, and the Mission of Angels Retreat Center. A portion of the property will be donated to the Mission of Angels Foundation as the future home site for the Mission of Angels Foundation in fulfillment of our goal to build a “Country Inn and Retreat Center”. We are currently seeking funding to turn this dream into a reality!

Federal and state laws on income and inheritance taxes encourage charitable giving. All annual contributions to Mission of Angels are tax-deductible for those who itemize their deductions. It can be particularly most advantageous for some donors to contribute appreciated securities.
If you choose to contribute appreciated securities held more than 12 months, you will receive double the tax benefit through avoiding the capital gains, which would be paid if the stock were sold rather than donated; or receiving a charitable deduction equal to the fair market value at the time of the gift as opposed to the time of purchase.
