Endow Iowa Tax Credit Program
It’s better to give and receive.

Giving through the NAMI GDM Endow Iowa fund at the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines is rewarding—in more ways than one. 

Your gift improves lives in our community, and the Endow Iowa Tax Credit Program offers you generous tax incentives to make it easier for you to give more for less. Those who give to a permanently endowed fund such as NAMI Greater Des Moines' at a qualified community foundation or affiliate organization, including the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines, are eligible to receive 25% tax credits for their gifts, up to $300,000 per taxpayer. 

Community members who give also are able to take advantage of the tax credits in conjunction with federal tax deductions.

Tax credits are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, with approximately $6 million available annually statewide. The tax credits can be claimed by individuals, businesses or financial institutions.
