(2) Donation That Keeps On Giving

Larks Community FUNd Endowment

About our Endowment FUNd:

The Larks Community FUNd has established the endowment so that your donation can help us give grants today and in the future. An endowment fund is a permanent fund. The principle in the fund remains untouched. Instead, the interest earned on the fund is available every year to provide access to sports, educational opportunities, and positive life experiences to those in Lark Nation.

The benefit to you:

There are some unique benefits to donating to a qualified ND endowment fund. The most significant one is the 40% ND State Tax Credit.

Individuals who donate a minimum of $5,000 and businesses that donate any amount in one calendar year to the Larks Community FUNd Endowment are eligible for a 40% State Tax Credit on their gift, up to $10,000 credit.

The table below shows the cost of a gift to our endowment fund for donors in the 32% tax bracket.
