Multiple projects around Central Kansas will benefit from Community Service Program (CSP) Tax Credits announced Monday by the Kansas Department of Commerce. Two organizations in McPherson County and one in Great Bend are among the non-profit organizations what will receive $166,600 in credits.

$4.1 million in CSP Tax Credits have been awarded to support 26 nonprofit organizations across Kansas and their fundraising efforts. 

Under the Community Service Tax Credit program, state tax credits are provided for donors supporting approved projects. These credits amount to 70 percent of donations for projects in communities with under 15 thousand population, such as Lindsborg and Moundridge, with 50 percent credits in larger communities. 

The Lindsborg Old Mill and Swedish Heritage Museum in Lindsborg will use their tax credits in support of full structural repairs to the 1904 World’s Fair Swedish Pavilion, and partial funding for replacement of the Pavilion roof with a new reproduction composite roof that will be more historically accurate.

Cradle to Crayons in Moundridge, working through the McPherson County Community Foundation, received tax credits for construction of a new 18,000 square foot Moundridge Early Childhood Center, specifically various safety items, hardened place playground turf, site fencing and lighting.

Great Bend Economic Development will use their credits in support of the IGNITE Innovation Center, which through collaborative partnerships in healthcare, workforce and education, will address community needs with services such as makerspaces, classes, co-working space and a workforce hub. This will integrate health screening, podcasting and a community kitchen to enhance well-being and connectivity.
