Kansas Tax Credits

It’s no secret that Ike considered his greatest accomplishment to be his Kansas upbringing. 

“The proudest thing I can claim is that I am from Abilene.” Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower said these very words when he returned to his hometown — Abilene, Kansas — on June 22, 1945, less than two months after accepting the surrender of Nazi Germany.

Consider this quote for a moment. General Eisenhower had literally saved the world from unspeakable horrors, but the thing he was most proud of was that he was able to call Abilene his home. It was here in Kansas, in the middle of America, where he learned the values he would rely on to successfully lead our nation and the world.

On the same day, the Eisenhower Foundation was established. As we reflect on the past 76 years, our vision for the future becomes clearer: to ensure future generations appreciate the extent to which Eisenhower and the Greatest Generation shaped today’s world.

In honor of Ike's Kansas roots, the Eisenhower Foundation has partnered with the State of Kansas to offer tax credits to Kansans in exchange for a donation to our organization. Eligible donations must be received between January 1, 2021, through December 31, 2025, and tax credits are equal to 50% of the total contribution. We encourage you to visit with your tax professional to receive maximum benefit.

Any resident individual, corporate, or privilege taxpayer is eligible. Donations of at least $1,000 per taxable year qualify. Non-resident individual taxpayers do not qualify for the tax credit.

As a note, the amount of credit shall not exceed $25,000 for any resident individual taxpayer subject to the income tax or $50,000 for any taxpayer subject to the income tax on corporations or the privilege tax on financial institutions.

Please visit the Kansas Department of Revenue website for more information.
