State Tax Credits for Scholarship Gifts

Help students… help yourself!
Through Virginia’s Education Improvement Scholarships Tax Credit (EISTC) Program, donors can receive a state tax credit equal to 65% of their donation, plus regular tax savings, when they make gifts to the Diocese of Richmond’s McMahon Parater Foundation for Scholarships, designated for students in need at PC. In addition to a 65% Tax Credit, individuals and businesses may also receive federal and state a charitable contribution deduction, and therefore achieve tax savings in two ways. 
Gifts through Virginia's EISTC Program can be made in one lump sum payment or in monthly installments.

For example, a gift of $1,000 to McMahon Parater Foundation by an individual donor subject to the Federal Alternative Minimum tax could qualify for the following deductions:

Federal Tax Savings at 24% rate ($1,000-$650) x24% =$ 84
State Tax Savings at 5.75% rate $1,000 x5.75% =$ 58
EISTC Virginia Tax Credit $1,000 x65% =$ 650

Potential Total Tax Savings (approximate)           =$ 792
Net Cost of Donation          =$ 208

Additional savings can be realized by donating appreciated stock.

Individual circumstances will vary, please consult your tax advisor to discuss your specific tax savings.
