2019 NAP Tax Credits

Give and Save!


Enjoy additional tax savings this holiday when you make a gift of $100 or greater by December 31.

By supporting the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites, your generosity delivers thought-provoking experiences that engage visitors in hands-on, minds-on activities to spark imaginations and ignite big discussions on topics relevant to today.

And, thanks to the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority, you can help further the impact of nonprofit organizations in our local communities through their Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP). By using NAP credits, you receive up to 50% of your charitable gift back as a state tax credit.

Unlike a tax deduction, NAP credits reduce your Indiana State tax liability—the taxes owed after all deductions are taken.

For example:

  • When you give a gift of $100 to support the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites, the full value of your gift delivers STEAM-based programs to visitors statewide.
  • You then receive an Indiana State tax credit valued at 50% of your gift. If taxes are due after all deductions have been taken when filing your state taxes, your credit will reduce your tax liability by $50.
  • In addition, the total amount of your gift may be claimed as a deduction on an itemized federal income tax return.


To earn tax savings with your gift:

  1. Call/email us to confirm availability and the amount you wish to give. (317.232.3512 or svowels@indianamuseum.org)

  2. Fill out the Donor Contribution Form and the Donor Acknowledgement Form.

  3. When making your gift via mail, please enclose a check payable to “Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites Foundation, Inc.” and write “NAP” in the memo of your check.

Mail both completed forms along with your gift to:

Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites
Development Department
650 W. Washington St.
Indianapolis, IN 46204-2185

If you would like to make your gift online, please include “NAP” in the comment section of our online gift form. When mailing your completed Donor Contribution and Donor Acknowledgement forms to the address above, let us know that you made your gift online.
