Opportunities for Indiana Residents
Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) Tax Credits
The purpose of the Indiana NAP tax credit program is to encourage businesses, trusts and individuals to make donations to benefit our work serving low-income persons.
Entities filing State of Indiana income tax returns for 2016 that make contributions greater than $100 prior to June 30, 2016 may receive tax credits equal to 50 percent of the donation. This credit is applied against your Indiana state income tax liability. For example, if you donate $500 you will receive a $250 tax credit on your 2016 Indiana Tax Return. The credits are available on a "first-come, first-served" basis. When Volunteers of America's allotment of credits is exhausted, the program will end, unless the State re-authorizes the program.
NAP donations allow Volunteers of America to provide counseling services for individuals in Indianapolis. These persons include veterans transitioning out of homelessness, men and women returning to the community after a period of incarceration, children with an incarcerated or previously incarcerated parent, adults who need mental health counseling, and adults seeking substance abuse treatment. Thank you for supporting the mental and emotional well-being of this population. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Shifting Gears Bike Donations
Shifting Gears is a partnership between Bicycle Garage Indy, Volunteers of America and the Indiana Department of Corrections. Additional partners include PEN Products and CitiMark Management Company.
Used bicycles are donated through Bicycle Garage Indy to the Shifting Gears program. Bicycle Garage Indy has received and donated over 3000 bikes to the Shifting Gears program since its involvement began in August 2006. Volunteers of America issues tax-deductions for the donated bikes. Under the direction of Indiana Department of Correction staff, inmates learn to repair bicycles and get a sense of accomplishment. The program provides inmates with a job and helps build self-worth.
