Endow Iowa Tax Credit
Gifts of $50 or more to endowed funds qualify for the Endow Iowa tax credit. View a complete list of our funds. Various gift types qualify for the tax credit, including charitable IRA rollovers, gifts of grain, gifts of stock and cash gifts.
Credits are given on a first-come, first-served basis. This means not only is it important to make your gift, but to fill out and return your Endow Iowa application as quickly as possible. Donors who do not receive 2018 tax credits become first in line for the new supply of 2019 credits.
All qualified donors can carry forward the tax credit for up to five years after the year the donation was made.
