Workshop to Show Nonprofits How to Apply for Neighborhood Investment Program
The West Virginia Development Office (WVDO) will host a workshop to explain how West Virginia nonprofit organizations and their donors can benefit from the Neighborhood Investment Program (NIP).
The workshop will be held on Wednesday, June 05, 2013, at the Bridgeport Conference Center, located at 300 Conference Center Way in Bridgeport. Pre-registration is required. On-site check-in for the event starts at 1:00 PM.
The June 05 event is the only NIP application workshop for this fiscal year.
WVDO is presenting the workshop at no charge. Participants are asked to register with WVDO by May 29, 2013.
To register, visit www.wvdo.org/NIPregistration or call 304.558.2234. Organizations are not required to attend the workshop to apply. However, attendance at the workshop is strongly encouraged due to significant changes in the application for fiscal year 2014.
After the workshop, the application and guidelines will be available on the website.
The workshop gives an overview of the benefits of NIP involvement and provides Fiscal Year 2014 applications. The deadline for submitting NIP applications is July 5, 2013.
NIP was established by the West Virginia Legislature to encourage charitable giving to local nonprofit organizations. To participate, qualified 501(c)3 organizations must apply to the West Virginia Development Office. After receiving approval from the NIP Advisory Board, the nonprofit organizations are awarded tax credit vouchers to distribute to donors. Businesses and individual taxpayers that contribute to approved nonprofit organizations can earn credits to reduce certain West Virginia taxes.
