C4K is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. Donations are typically fully deductible for donors who itemize deductions on Schedule A of their personal income tax return. C4K accepts donations of marketable securities.  Each year, C4K has a limited number of Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) tax credits available for eligible donations  ($500 and above for individuals, and $616 and above for businesses). Credits are awarded at 65% of the donation value.  Credits are available on a first come, first served basis, and it is the responsibility of the donor to verify if credits are still available before making a donation.  If donating via credit card, the donor must cover processing fees. For more details, view the NAP tax credit form and instructions and contact Kala Somerville at 434-817-1121.
