Strengthening Charitable
Giving in Mississippi

ENDOW Mississippi is a state tax credit program that is an incentive to encourage individuals, businesses, and organizations to make lasting investments in their local communities through charitable giving. It was created in 2019 by the State Legislature to encourage gifts to permanent endowments at qualified community foundations, like the CREATE Foundation!

Donors are eligible to receive a 25% state tax credit for donations to endowed funds at the CREATE Foundation.

at the CREATE Foundation

* This is an example. Consult your financial advisor about your specific situation. If you itemize deductions on your federal tax return, your gift will also be eligible for the federal charitable tax deduction - reducing the cost to you even more. You can deduct the remaining 75% of your gift as a charitable gift for state tax purposes.
