Lotus 2019 NAP Credits – AVAILABLE

Through NAP (Neighborhood Assistance Program), a donation to Lotus makes a donor eligible to receive 50% of the total donation back as a tax credit when filing an end-of-year Indiana tax return. For example, a donor who gives a $200 donation receives $100 back on state taxes. Donors are also eligible to claim the total amount of the gift as a tax deduction on an itemized federal income tax return.

All Lotus NAP contributions will benefit the Lotus Blossoms Educational Outreach Program. Lotus brings amazing global artists into over 30 Indiana schools a year for performances and workshops. Your donations create opportunities for urban and rural school children to experience world cultures!

Call the Lotus office to make a NAP donation at 812-336-6599 or email Megan Hutchison, Development Director at megan@lotusfest.org for details.

Credits are limited and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
