JOIN US IN OUR MISSION
TEAM for West Virginia Children has been awarded $14,000 in Neighborhood Investment Program (NIP) credits that are available for us to give to donors now through June 30, 2018. NIP credits are awarded on a competitive basis, and the award indicates that the State of West Virginia recognizes the important work we do.
NIP Credits Can Help Donors Realize Tax Savings
You are eligible to use NIP credits if you make a donation to TEAM for West Virginia Children of $500 or more before the June 30, 2018, deadline. The amount of the credit you will receive is up to half the amount of your donation, and the credit may be used to reduce your state, personal or corporate income tax liability. (Please consult your tax professional for specifics.)
NIP credits tend to go fast. We, therefore, hope you will consider TEAM for West Virginia Children as you mull over your charitable giving for the coming year. More information about NIP credits can be found in the Neighborhood Investment Program by clicking here.
How TEAM Will Be Using Your Donation
Donations to TEAM for West Virginia Children which receive NIP credits will be used to support our Western Regional CASA program. This is our court-appointed, special advocacy program. Abused children in the court system are appointed a CASA volunteer to be the ‘squeaky wheel’ to ensure that those children end up in a safe, permanent home. Western Regional CASA serves Cabell, Wayne, Lincoln, Putnam, Boone, Kanawha, Jackson and Roane counties.
