It's a Win-win: Endow KY Tax Credit

It's a Win-win: Endow KY Tax Credit
The time is now to take advantage of the Endow Kentucky Tax Credit and help Covington Partners in the process.
Longtime Northern Kentucky community leaders Chuck and Julie Geisen Scheper helped to spearhead the fund for Covington Partners with Horizon Community Funds last year, citing the nonprofit’s use of best practices and strong collaborations to strengthen student success. 

Endow Kentucky Tax Credits open on July 1, 2022. A total of $1 million is available in credits, but is shared across the Commonwealth, underscoring the need for local donors to act fast in submitting their applications to take advantage of the incentive, as the credits are expected to be used up within a matter of days.

Gifts to endowed charitable funds are eligible for up to 20% in state tax credits. The tax credit (up to $10,000 per taxpayer; $20,000 per married couple filing jointly) may be taken against individual income tax, corporation income tax, or limited liability income tax.

Fund partnerships provide a flexible way for donors to support their preferred nonprofit organization or charitable effort. Donors can make an endowed gift to support the mission of Covington Partners for generations to come or can opt to make a non-endowed gift which provides funding for needs as they arise.
