Foster Care Donation Tax Credit

In 2021 the Indiana General Assembly adopted the Foster Care Donation Tax Credit for Indiana taxpayers and qualifying foster care agencies. This credit allows Indiana residents and businesses to claim a credit on their Indiana tax return for approved donations made to The Villages of Indiana. The maximum amount of credit that can be granted is 50% of the donation, up to $10,000 in a tax year.

This is an exciting opportunity for The Villages children and families and our community! As a value add, The Villages would like to offer our generous donors, like you, the support needed to navigate the paperwork process with the Indiana Department of Revenue (IDOR). If you have questions or would like to take advantage of this opportunity, please contact Sarah Cline, Director of Development For all tax related questions, we recommend consulting a tax advisor. The Villages cannot provide tax advice.
