In addition to donating directly to CCJ, donations can be made as gifts to CCJ through the Story County Community Foundation (SCCF).  We would encourage you to also consider making a lasting contribution with a legacy gift to CCJ.

CCJ has two funds with SCCF, an Agency Fund and an Endowment Fund:

  • Donations to the CCJ Agency Fund are invested for growth and are accessible to CCJ at any time.
  • Donations contributed to the CCJ Endowment Fund are also invested for growth; however, CCJ is limited to accessing five percent of the funds each year.

Donations to qualified SCCF endowed funds are eligible for the Endow Iowa Tax Credits (EITC). Taxpayers may claim a 25% Iowa tax credit in addition to the normal federal income tax deductions for charitable gifts up to $300,000 per taxpayer per year.  Additional information can be found on the SCCF Tax Credits web page.  More information on donating to the CCJ Agency and Endowment Funds can be found on the SCCF Donate web page.
