Get tax credits for qualified donations through the Virginia Neighborhood Assistance Program. VNAP provides state tax credits as an incentive for businesses and individuals to contribute directly to non-profit organizations that serve economically disadvantaged citizens, such as Hope House. We are one of the few organizations in the state approved to distribute these credits.
If your donation qualifies, you can recoup up to 65% of your contribution through state tax credits, and still take your state and federal charitable deductions. It’s a great way to reduce your tax liability and support Hope House at the same time.
To qualify, individuals or married couples must make a donation of cash or marketable securities/stock of at least $500. You will then receive credits in the amount of 65% of the donation, or $325 in state tax credits for a donation of $500.
Businesses must make a minimum donation of at least $616. Contributions may be in the form of cash, marketable securities/stock, real estate, professional services, or contracting services.
We are allotted a limited number of tax credits each year. Please email Elena Montello or call her at 757-625-6161, x507 to determine tax credit availability.
