Maternity Home Tax Credits

Maternity Home Tax Credits

Donations to The Haven of Grace can save you money – the more you give, the more you save!

A tax credit is a deduction (or credit) toward what you owe in taxes to the State of Missouri during a taxable year. This is in addition to the regular state and federal deductions you are eligible to take for charitable donations.

Under the state of Missouri’s Maternity Home Tax Credit, donations to The Haven of Grace are eligible for tax credits equal to 50% of the donation amount. Donations from individuals and/or businesses are eligible – including gifts of cash, stocks, bonds, securities and real estate – from $100 up to $100,000 per year.

Here’s How it Works:

  1. Make a $100 to $100,000 contribution to The Haven of Grace
  2. Complete the Maternity Home Tax Credit Application that is mailed to you with your gift acknowledgement and return the completed application to The Haven of Grace for processing
  3. The Haven of Grace will complete its portion of the application and forward it to the Missouri Department of Social Services for processing
  4. The Director of the Missouri Department of Social Services will provide notification of its decision to approve the tax credit to you (the taxpayer) and the Department of Revenue within 45 days of receipt of your application*
*Tax credits are issued in the order contributions are received and may be reduced if any outstanding tax balances are owed. Please consult your tax advisor before making your contribution to confirm the effects of the tax credit on your personal tax status.
