Missouri “Champion for Children” Tax Credits
Champion for Children tax credits are named in honor of former Senator Norma Champion who introduced the original bill in 2006. By contributing to Kids’ Harbor, you can help fund the important services we provide and receive a tax credit of up to 50 percent of your contribution.
The process is simple. Donate a minimum of $100 (cash, check or credit card) to the Kids’ Harbor. We will send you a simple form that you complete and save with the letter we send. Claim your tax credit in the year in which your donation is made by including the Champion for Children tax credit form with your Missouri tax return. You must file your return by the normal filing deadline (April 15 of the following year).
