Offer Hope, Restore Dignity, & Transform Lives

Donate

Donating to Volunteers of America of Indiana helps increase the reach of reentry services, homeless Veteran services, and housing for low-income seniors and individuals with intellectual disabilities across the state.

Your gift can provide many people with a step in the right direction. For example, it may buy a pair of safety glasses to enable someone to take a certification class, or it will buy a new bed for a previously homeless veteran who recently gained a home. It can also pay for a bus pass to help an individual look for a job and/or housing around the city.

Thanks to you, we've been able to support thousands of Hoosiers in vulnerable situations.

Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) Tax Credits

The purpose of the Indiana NAP tax credit program is to encourage businesses, trusts and individuals to make donations to benefit our work serving low-income persons.

Entities filing State of Indiana income tax returns for 2015 that make contributions greater than $100 prior to June 30, 2015 may receive tax credits equal to 50 percent of the donation. This credit is applied against your Indiana state income tax liability. For example, if you donate $500 you will receive a $250 tax credit on your 2015 Indiana Tax Return. The credits are available on a "first-come, first-served" basis. When VOAIN's allotment of credits is exhausted, the program will end, unless the State re-authorizes the program.

You must complete the NC-10 form with your acknowledgement form and return it to VOAIN to document your intent to claim the tax credit.

NAP donations allow VOAIN to provide counseling services for individuals in Indianapolis. These persons include veterans transitioning out of homelessness, men and women returning to the community after a period of incarceration, children with an incarcerated or previously incarcerated parent, adults who need mental health counseling, and adults seeking substance abuse treatment. Thank you for supporting the mental and emotional well-being of this population.

Contact Mike Perigo, Development Director, at 317-686-5807 for more information.

Used bicycles are donated through Bicycle Garage Indy to the Shifting Gears program. Bicycle Garage Indy has received and donated over 3000 bikes to the Shifting Gears program since its involvement began in August 2006.

The program provides inmates with a job and helps build self-worth.
