And now you can get tax credits when you donate!


Your donation of support for ST. MARTIN’S CHILD CENTER will allow us to continue offering childcare and education to a vulnerable population at a cost lower than similar child care centers.

The program is simple. You make a donation of $1,000 or more and you may take 50% of the amount of your gift to St. Martin’s Child Center off the total of your Missouri state tax liability. You may then take a charitable deduction off your federal taxes without regard for your 50% credit from the state of Missouri. That’s right; the out of pocket expenses could be less than half of your original donation! See the table below for examples of how tax credits may be applied:

The Missouri Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) credits allow the qualified donor to reduce their Missouri tax liability by 50% of their total contribution. A contribution of $1,000 can potentially cost the donor only $265.

Missouri 50% tax credits are available to any Missouri tax payer, whether an individual, corporation, firm or S corporation doing business in Missouri and subject to state business income tax.

Your support of St. Martin’s through time, in-kind donations and money will allow us to continue offering childcare and education to a vulnerable population at a cost lower than many similar child care centers.
