Montana Tax Credit
Rudy Autio

The State of Montana encourages contributions to permanent endowments held by or on behalf of Montana charitable organizations such as the Archie Bray Foundation through a special tax credit.  The Montana Tax Credit for Endowed Philanthropy is available to individuals who make irrevocable deferred gifts to qualified endowments.

Corporations and partnerships may receive the tax credit for outright gifts or planned gifts to the same endowments.

Montana individual taxpayers making qualified gifts may receive a Montana tax credit of 40 percent of the present value of the charitable gift, to a maximum of $10,000.  The tax credit for qualified gifts for corporations is 20 percent if the present value of the contribution to a maximum of $10,000. While a tax deduction serves to reduce the amount of income that is taxed, a tax credit reduces the tax liability itself.  Therefore, every dollar of tax credit reduces one dollar of tax.

Consult with your financial advisor about how to make a gift to the benefit the Archie Bray Foundation and at the same time qualify for the Montana tax credit.

The Bray Society

Rudy AutioThe many friends of the Archie Bray Foundation support the work of the Bray in a variety of ways.  Some donate their time and talents as volunteers.  Others contribute directly to annual operations and special projects.  But none are more important than those who ensure the future of the Bray through a bequest or other deferred gift.

Deferred gifts reflect a belief in the long-term value of the Bray and a commitment to its future.  We are deeply grateful for those that have chosen to benefit the Bray in the way and recognize their commitment with membership in The Bray Society. 

Bray Society members are recognized in Bray Honor Roll and are honored at an annual Bray Society gathering.     They also receive updates about plans for the future of the Bray.  But most of all they give us the opportunity to thank them for their generosity and thoughtfulness.

The Bray is a 501(c)(3) exempt organization under the Internal Revenue Code and all contributions to the Bray are deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
