Jefferson County Community Ministries, Inc. (JCCM) provides county residents with emergency food, clothing and limited financial assistance for utilities, fuel, prescription medications and housing. We believe that through emergency and short-term assistance, those who come to us might then be able to find more permanent solutions to their needs.
Our theme at JCCM is “Neighbors Helping Neighbors.” Our partnership with our churches, local businesses and civic organizations, educational institutions and schools, government agencies, and most important of all, the residents of Jefferson County, have allowed us to provide assistance to neighbors in need.
Recently JCCM received $40,000 worth of tax credits from the State of West Virginia’s Neighborhood Investment Program (NIP). The is a great opportunity to help your neighbors in need and reduce your tax obligation at the same time.
NIP was established by the West Virginia State Legislature to increase charitable giving to local nonprofits. Under this program, JCCM is offering tax credit vouchers to individuals or organizations that donate $500 or more. The value of the vouchers is 50% of the donation and they can be applied to your Corporate Net Income Tax, your Business Franchise Tax or your Personal Income Tax.
To be eligible for the 2014 tax year, you’ll need to purchase the credits by December 31st. Since the credits are limited, contact us today at email@example.com to reserve your credits or for more information.
