Museum Offers Businesses Tax Credits For Contributions

  • Bank of the Eastern Shore
  • National Bank of Cambridge

The Community Investment Tax Credit (CITC) Program, run by Maryland's Department of Housing and Community Development, awards the tax credits to eligible non-profit organizations that apply for entry into the program. Businesses contributing $500 or more under the program earn a tax credit of fifty percent of the amount of the contribution.

This credit is taken against the individual's or company's Maryland state tax liability and may be claimed in addition to the regular federal and state charitable contribution deductions, making the out-of-pocket expense to the individual or business as little as eight cents on the dollar, depending on their  tax bracket.

Individuals and businesses, including sole proprietorships, with a Maryland state tax liability are eligible for participation just by making a contribution to the Foundation and filling out a simple one-page form. Contributions under this program are targeted for the Administrative Personnel-retention and development project.

Participation in the CITC program, and the local businesses that are making generous contributions to our organization under this program, are laying a foundation on which we will build our future and we greatly appreciate their support.

For information on how to make a contribution to the James B. Richardson Foundation under the Community Investment Tax Credit Program, please contact the Foundation at 410-221-1871.
