...but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Matthew 6:20-21

Dunlap Garrick Christian Community Foundation continues support of Norfolk Christian Low-Income Financial Aid Program

Program Year July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017

Since 2008 the Dunlap Garrick Christian Community Foundation (DGCCF) has partnered with Norfolk Christian Schools to provide nearly $1.5 million of financial aid to low-income families in great need.  Thank you for your support in providing the treasured gift of Christian education!  

DGCCF has participated in the Virginia Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) since 2009 and again been awarded NAP tax credits for the new program year of July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017.  NAP Credits serve as an incentive for individuals and businesses to make charitable donations towards organizations that are committed to helping the economically deprived.  Through this program, charitable contributions made to DGCCF to benefit the Norfolk Christian low-income tuition assistance program can earn the donor a 65% State income tax credit.

Contributions made through the DGCCF to earn NAP Credits will provide to qualifying families at Norfolk Christian a higher than normal percentage of financial aid to families of low-income who demonstrate the need.

Due to additional organizations joining the state’s NAP program, credits are more limited than the prior year.   Requests from prior donors will be accepted through September 30 for credits to be used by December 30.  Additional tax credits may be available through an alternative tax credit program, please contact Rick L. Nikkel, Norfolk Christian’s Director of Advancement, at 757-233-8448 or rnikkel@norfolkchristian.org to discuss these programs and request tax credits.  We are deeply grateful for your support.


With warmest regards,
