North Dakota Taxpayers may receive a 40% tax credit for a gift to CHI St. Alexius Health Carrington Foundation's Endowment Fund. Legislators continue to move the state to the cutting edge of state charitable income tax credits with legislation providing tax credits for gifts made to qualified North Dakota endowments.

A qualified endowment is defined as an “irrevocable fund held by a North Dakota incorporated or established organization that is a qualified non-profit organization; or a bank or trust company holding the fund on behalf of a qualified non-profit organization.” An endowment is a fund held by a tax-exempt organization where the principal of the fund is not wholly expendable. Only the interest and appreciation earned in an endowment fund can be used for current operations.

An individual may receive a 40% tax credit for contributions of $5,000 or more (lump sum or aggregate in one year) to a qualified North Dakota endowment. If a donor is in a 28% federal tax bracket, the tax benefit may look like this:

Gift amount of $5,000 – $1,400 Federal Tax Deduction – $2,000 ND State Income Tax Credit = $1,600 Net Cost*
