I am happy to announce the InterServ Capital Campaign has reached 80% of its $5,000,000 goal. This is a significant threshold and the Campaign Committee is very grateful for all the support it has received from the community. The Committee and the InterServ Foundation staff continue to explore and seek out other sources of funding for the new building complex.
In early January, we were elated to learn the campaign had been awarded $250,000 in Neighborhood Assistance Program Tax Credits. Qualifying donors will receive a 50% Missouri Income Tax Credit. In addition, you may be entitled to a charitable contribution deduction on your federal and state tax returns.
A sample of how the Tax Credits work has been included in this newsletter. Anyone interested in the Tax Credits should contact either Bridget Supple, or Brett King, at the Foundation office, as soon as possible, since they are only available as long as they last.
Although we have made great progress in the campaign, we still have a steep road ahead of us in raising another $1,000,000 to achieve our goal. Therefore, we are asking for everyone to please consider a gift to the campaign, or provide us with any prospects. Gifts can be made payable over several years and through various payment options.
InterServ has long served the needs of the community and has been an anchor for the South Side. It is our hope to conclude the campaign by June 30. But, we need your help. If you have not already made a contribution, please consider one. Through your generosity, we will be able to build a better future for the community, as well as strengthening and sustaining our services to the South Side.
Over the last 107 years, InterServ has always been there for us, now is the time for us to be there for InterServ.
