Investing in Iowa's Future with the
Endow Iowa Tax Credit Program

By making a donation today to one of our qualified Endow Iowa Tax Credit funds or establishing your very own, you are investing in the future of our community.

The Endow Iowa Tax Credit Program provides tax incentives for Iowa taxpayers to endow funds at a qualified community foundation, such as the Community Foundation for Western Iowa. Donors who make gifts to an eligible fund can qualify to receive a 25% Endow Iowa Tax Credit in addition to the federal charitable income tax deductions for certain charitable gifts.

A variety of gifts qualify for the Endow Iowa Tax Credits which include: cash, real estate, appreciated securities and outright gifts of retirement assets. These gifts may be made in any amount to any qualified endowment fund. Eligible gifts that qualify for credits are awarded on a first come, first served basis until the yearly appropriated limit is reached. If the current available credits have been awarded, qualified donors will be eligible for credit the following year. Awarded credits can be carried up to five years from the date the gift was made.

To make a donation today to a qualified Endow Iowa Fund or one of our other charitable funds, or to establish your very own Endow Iowa Fund, please contact our office at 712-256-7007 or kdix@givewesterniowa.org.

We encourage donors to consult with their tax advisors to review their individual circumstances and visit the Iowa Economic Development website.
