ND Tax Credit for Endowed Gifts

North Dakota allows a sizable income tax credit of 40% of a charitable donation greater than $5,000 through cash or a deferred gift to a qualified endowment fund of a nonprofit organization. This tax credit is available to North Dakota residents and businesses.

A 'qualified endowment fund' is defined as an irrevocable fund held by a North Dakota organization or bank/financial institution on behalf of a qualified organization. Only the interest and appreciation can be used by the charitable organization. While a charitable deduction reduced the amount of income subject to taxation, the tax credit is a dollar for dollar reduction in your North Dakota tax liability. It is subject to an annual limitation of $10,000 per business or individual and $20,000 for a couple. An unused credit can be carried forward for three years.

This is a great opportunity for North Dakotans to help 4-H AND significantly reduce their state tax liabilities!
