Maximize Your Impact: Support Glendive Schools and Benefit on Your 2024 Taxes

Dear Members of the Glendive Community,

We're excited to offer an incredible way to support Glendive Public Schools while simultaneously benefiting your tax bill. The Innovative Educational Program Tax Credit for 2024 is a unique opportunity for taxpayers to directly reduce their state tax liabilities through contributions to our schools. This program not only strengthens our educational system but also provides a tangible financial benefit to our supporters.

What is the Innovative Educational Program Tax Credit?

This state initiative allows individuals and businesses to receive a tax credit for contributions made to public schools. For 2024, the state has set a cap of $5,000,000 for these tax credits, indicating a substantial opportunity for donors.

How Can You Participate?

  • Understand the Limits: Individual donors can contribute up to $200,000 per year. However, be aware that once the statewide cap of $5,000,000 is reached, no further credits can be claimed.

  • Date you must act before January 17, 2024, is the opening date for submitting your donations to qualify for the tax credit.

  • Quick Allocation: Based on trends from previous years, these tax credits are typically claimed within minutes. It's crucial to act swiftly to secure your contribution and tax credit.

  • Donation Process: Make your donation to Glendive Public Schools, specifying its use for innovative educational programs. We will then register your donation with the Department of Revenue for preapproval.

  • In Case of Non-Approval: If the state cap is reached or your donation isn't preapproved, you'll be promptly notified. If your donation is not accepted by the DOR, you will not be obligated to make the donation.

How Will Your Donation Be Used?

Your generous contributions will be channeled into various innovative educational initiatives, including but not limited to:

  • Developing transformational and advanced learning opportunities.

  • Enhancing programs for students with disabilities.

  • Investing in work-based learning partnerships.

  • Upgrading educational technologies and equipment.
