Be a Champion for Children.

Increase the power of your charitable giving with Missouri's Champion for Children Tax Credit. Donors who give $100 or more to 37th Judicial CASA may apply for the credit, which can be claimed in an amount equal to 50% of the contribution. This incentive for greater philanthropy goes above and beyond just saving money through charitable deductions. See the chart below to find out how much your gift could be maximized through the tax credit.

Carry-forward rule: Any amount of tax credit which exceeds the tax due or which is applied for and otherwise eligible for issuance but is not issued may be carried forward to the next four (4) subsequent taxable years.
