The Endow Iowa Tax Credit Program

The Endow Iowa Tax Credit Program is a wonderful incentive for citizens interested in giving back to support important charitable organizations and causes in their communities.

The Endow Iowa Tax Credit is 25% of the amount of the endowed charitable gift. The State of Iowa offers this tax credit as an incentive to encourage community-minded citizens to donate and give back to their communities to enhance the quality of life in their cities, towns and counties.
