If you can make a larger gift, your gift will go twice as far!

swbcd_citc-info_20161203-cropped-pdfWith our Community Investment Tax Credits (CITC) you will receive a 50% refund back on your state taxes for any gift of at least $1,000.

If you give $1,000, you’ll get $500 back from the state. If you give $5,000, you’ll get $2,500 back! And you can also claim your total gift on your itemized federal taxes. Your gift goes far to invest in the community — but has a smaller impact on your wallet.

Any donor can receive the CITC credit: individuals, businesses, foundations, and other non-profits.

After SWBCDC receives your donation, you will get an email asking you to complete a 2-minute online form. A couple weeks later you will receive a document to use when you file with your state taxes in order to get your refund. It’s that easy.

Use this link to make your CITC donation today! Thanks!
