“I have been taking advantage of tax credits for Youth In Need for many years. I honestly cannot think of a better way to really help a great agency while minimizing your out-of-pocket expenses and knowing exactly how your tax dollars are being used.”

Give More, Pay Less: Missouri State Tax Credits
Missouri state tax credits are available for gifts and pledges made by any individual or business owing taxes in the State of Missouri! That means donors can contribute more to Youth In Need because the total out-of-pocket cost of the donation is lower.
Anyone who contributes $100 or more qualifies for state tax credits equal to 50 percent of their donation. The tax credits then can be used to pay Missouri state income tax on top of any charitable deduction that you may receive for the gift.
