Thank you to all of you who wrote letters of support for your library! We were notified the first of July that we had been awarded a Kansas Tax Credit Grant of $240,000 by the Kansas Deptartment of Commerce & Housing.
Under this program, contributors to approved projects will receive a Kansas Income Tax credit in the amount of 70% of their total donation for the current year. To fully utilize this tax credit grant, the Scott Community Foundation and the Library are seeking $342,857.14 in contributions ($342,857.14 X 70% = $240,000). Prior fundraising efforts by the Library have generated more than $300,000. The balance of $300,000 combined with the Tax Credits will fund 75% of the projected $850,000 total cost of the Library Expansion Project.
