The state of Iowa has recognized the need to support taxpayers who wish to support Christian education. 
Iowa taxpayers can receive a tax credit up to 65% of their donation and deduct the gift on their Federal Income Tax, if they itemize.  The NICSTO program includes sixteen schools in NW Iowa and is a great tax benefit to those who will be paying Iowa taxes on their income, while blessing many families with tuition assistance.

If you're an Iowa taxpayer interested in an Iowa state income tax credit, please click here for the contribution form.

We encourage you to visit with your tax professional for advice on how to best enjoy the donation opportunities of NICSTO.

NICSTO Tuition grants are available to students living in households with income that does not exceed four times the federal poverty guidelines.
Parents or guardians who would like to participate in receiving NICSTO funds, just need to complete an application form and submit it to SCCS by Friday, September 16, 2019.


If you have questions, please contact Kelli Van Roekel, Director of Finance or Amy Vander Berg, Director of Development & Promotions. 712-722-0777.
