TAX CREDIT Oppportunity…
Giving to Support The Scholarship Fund Feels Good…Getting Money Back in
Tax Credits Feels Even Better…
The Scholarship Fund of Alexandria has recently been chosen by the Commonwealth of Virginia to receive select Tax Credit Status. We are one of only 70 educational organizations statewide to receive this designation. As an approved charity we can now offer you, our supporters, a 65% tax credit on your financial contribution to the Scholarship Fund — which when coupled with standard state and federal deductions* can add up to over 80% return on your investment, or money back in your pocket.
In some cases, our new tax credit status can result in Zero-Cost charitable giving, and may actually save you more in taxes than the amount of your gift – you could actually come out ahead dollar-wise. The tax credits are applicable on donations of stock and appreciable assets and can allow you to fully eliminate capital gains taxes you would have paid had you sold the appreciated asset.
“Virginia offers tax credits in exchange for donations to nonprofit organizations serving the truly needy. Remember that a tax credit is far more valuable than a deduction because it reduces your tax bill dollar for dollar.” –Forbes contributor John Marotta, “How to Make Money Paying Virginia Income Tax” June 2013
