The state of Iowa has recognized the need to support taxpayers who wish to support Christian education. 
Iowa taxpayers can receive an Iowa tax credit equal to 65% of their donation to a School Tuition Organization such as NICSTO (Northwest Iowa Christian School Tuition Organization). In addition, part of your gift might also qualify for a federal tax deduction, if you 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 SCCS families with tuition assistance.

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

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