Bethany Home Association (BHA) was one of 25 non-profit organizations in Kansas to be awarded tax credits under the Kansas Department of Commerce’s Community Service Tax Credit Program (CSP).
As the result of a competitive application process, BHA was awarded $215,000 in tax credits to be used for the development of its new Homes Plus care facility in Assaria. Upon completion, the facility will accommodate up to 12 residents, providing industry-leading healthcare while allowing seniors to remain in their community.
“Community Service Tax Credits support the fund-raising efforts of organizations that help make Kansas a great place to live,” Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George said. “The non-profits receiving CSP awards serve communities all across our state by providing a wide range of services that enhance the quality of life and create economic opportunity.”
The CSP program provides non-profits tax credits, which are worth 70 percent in rural communities such as Lindsborg. The credits allow donors to financially contribute to a project at a much lower cost. A donor making a $1,000 donation would receive a $700 refundable tax credit to be used against their Kansas income tax liability.
“We were excited to receive the news of the tax credits,” Dale Hoosier, Bethany Home Association development director, said. “This provides us with a unique opportunity to raise funds for our new Assaria homes plus project. Bethany Home looks forward to delivering quality, Christ-centered healthcare to residents of rural McPherson and Saline counties.”
