Norfolk Collegiate Educational Foundation (NCEF) was established in December 1997 to provide educational assistance for academically qualified students to attend Norfolk Collegiate. As a participant in the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP), the foundation’s objective is to expand the educational opportunities of children from low-income families and to enrich the school by broadening the cultural and economic diversity of the student population.
HOW DOES THE NCEF TAX CREDIT PROGRAM WORK?
Donors to the Norfolk Collegiate Educational Foundation receive state and federal charitable tax deductions for the amount of their contribution. In addition, companies and individuals who pay Virginia state income taxes receive a state income tax credit equal to 65 percent of their donation.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Tax credits are awarded at the rate of 65 percent of the donation value. A minimum donation of $500 (cash or marketable securities) is required to be eligible. A maximum limit of $50,000 in tax credits per individual or married couple per taxable year will be imposed if all tax credits are awarded in a fiscal year. Tax credits not used carry over for five years.
Example: Give a $1,000 cash gift to the Norfolk Collegiate Educational Foundation and the state will send a $650 voucher for Virginia state taxes.
Tax credits may be available to a business making a minimum contribution of $615.39. Tax credits for business donors are awarded at a rate of 65 percent of the donation value.
