Change a Child’s Life While Receiving a Tax Credit

Last year the Mississippi Legislature passed “The Children’s Promise Act” which provides a dollar for dollar TAX CREDIT to individuals and companies who give to a qualified charity. Through this act, you can give to The Methodist Children’s Homes and receive your tax credit.

Tax Credits for Businesses

Your donation to Methodist Children’s Homes can be a DOLLAR-FOR-DOLLAR TAX CREDIT up to 50% of your Mississippi state tax liability. The total funding available is $5 Million, but it its first-come-first-serve. Act now to ensure your business benefits!

Tax Credit For Individuals

When you make a cash contribution to Methodist Children’s Homes this year, your gift of up to $1000 can receive a 100% state tax credit. The full amount of your donation will be deducted from your 2019 tax liability.

When Lashawn came to Methodist Children’s Homes five months ago, his plan was to run away on his 18th birthday. This past Friday, Lashawn turned 18 and said, “Now that I’m here I don’t want to leave. This place feels home. I have aunties and a granddad and mommas. It’s like a family here”.
