The GSDCA Charitable Trust is a section 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Its purpose is to educate breeders, judges, juniors, clubs and the general public. We seek to gather and disseminate up-to-date and relevant information on topics such as health, genetics, legislation etc. and, through education, improve the overall general opinion of and respect for the German Shepherd Dog.

As the GSDCA Charitable Trust was created for benevolent purposes, we intend to host special canine events that would educate the public about the upkeep and care of the German Shepherd Dog as well as raise funds for recognized charities that help our dogs.

The Trust finances Educational Forums held during the Annual National Specialty. The Trust Seminars will highlight Activities that the German Shepherd works within, because our breed's temperament, structure and purpose was developed for this type of activity. And our Breed is at its healthiest when utilized for its purpose. It is hoped that the seminars will encourage the public to learn, participate in and support those worthy endeavors.

The GSDCA Charitable Trust was formed to educate breeders, judges, juniors, clubs and the public, thereby improving the health, genetics, education and overall respect for our breed.  We seek to gather and disseminate up-to-date and relevant information through education.
