[FINNEY COUNTY, Kan.]


Garden City Community College (GCCC) has been selected by Governor Laura Kelly to receive Community Service Tax Credits (CSP) in the amount of $150,000.


The program will allow the GCCC Endowment Association to sell 50% tax credits towards the Fine Arts Expansion project, an addition to the college's fine arts building to expand programs and create new gallery space and a community event center.


Community tax credits are a tool used to dramatically enhance fundraising efforts, providing a 50% tax credit to qualified donors. For example, a donor making a $1,000 contribution receives a $500 tax credit when they file their state taxes, making the net cost to the donor only $500.


The GCCC Endowment Association is one of 29 Kansas non-profits from across the state selected based on a highly competitive, score-based selection process. A total of 55 agencies applied for funds.


Local donors interested in purchasing tax credits for this project can contact Scott Kedrowski at 620-276-9572 or scott.kedrowski@gcccks.edu.
