BCI has $241,000 in Missouri Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) state tax credits to offer through 2024. Eligible donors giving $1,000 or more can reduce the state tax they owe while supporting BCI’s programs for adults with disabilities.

NAP donations are restricted to our Transforming Lives by Transforming Spaces initiative. This expansion, our largest since 2011, will allow us to provide jobs to 48 more adults with disabilities, allowing them to achieve their self-development goals while earning wages and contributing to their community. The new workspace is being built out within our existing secondary St. Peters warehouse and will feature a welcoming common room, enhanced lighting, HVAC upgrades, larger restrooms, and new production equipment.

Individuals are eligible to receive NAP credits if they operate a sole proprietorship or farm, have rental property or royalty income, or are a shareholder in an S-corporation, a partner in a partnership, or a member of a limited liability corporation. Businesses are also eligible.

NAP credits are worth 50% of your gift and, in addition to state and federal standard deductions, directly reduce the amount of tax you owe. You may also donate appreciated stock for even greater benefits, such as avoiding capital gains and the ability to deduct the stock’s full market value on your tax return.

To discuss these tax credits or get started with a qualified donation, please call (636) 875-5220.
