For nearly 20 years, the Endow Iowa Tax Credit has been a valuable tool for making investments in the future of Iowa causes and communities. This innovative, bipartisan piece of legislation has resulted in tremendous impact. From 2003 – 2021, Iowans have contributed more than $336 million in permanent endowment gifts to Iowa causes and communities, through more than 43,500 donations.
This tremendous generosity has led to tremendous demand for the program. Over the course of the past five years, Endow Iowa Tax Credits are often exhausted a year in advance of becoming available and many donors have been added to a waitlist to receive future credits.
In order to keep the Endow Iowa Tax Credit working for Iowans, the Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA), which oversees the Endow Iowa Tax Credit, has announced changes to Endow Iowa Tax Credit program effective immediately.
