Community Service Tax Credit Program (CSP)

Amplifying fundraising activities for non-profits.

The Community Service Tax Credit Program (CSP) allows private, non-profit organizations and public health care entities to improve their ability to undertake significant capital campaigns for projects involving children and family services, non-governmental crime prevention, youth apprenticeship or youth technical training, and health care. 

Under this program, the state authorizes specially selected non-profit organizations to offer tax credits to donors making contributions to the approved projects. 

Applicants may request up to $200,000 in tax credits. Applicant organizations in rural areas (< 15,000 population) are eligible for a 70 percent credit. Applicant organizations in non-rural areas are eligible for a 50 percent credit.
