NAP Tax Credits Available

What better way to double your impact than to support the mission of Beyond Housing during this season of giving? Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) tax credits allow you to claim up to 50% of your contribution to Beyond Housing on your Missouri taxes. NAP credits will be offered to qualifying donors making a gift of $2,500 or more. Visit the information page for full details.

Other ways to give

You can sell your stock and donate what’s left over after you pay capital gains tax, or you can donate securities directly so you get a bigger deduction and the charity gets a bigger donation.

Making a gift of stock? Please fill out the information below to receive instructions.

If you have any questions, please contact Chris Krehmeyer at (314) 533-5812

Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning that you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. This makes cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax-efficient ways to support your favorite cause.

Beyond Housing accepts Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Dogecoin (DOGE), and many other forms of crypto.

Employers often match employee donations to charitable institutions. If your organization has a matching gifts program, please fill out the proper paperwork for submission to Beyond Housing.

Thank you for your interest in donating wish list items to Beyond Housing.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Beyond Housing is unable to accept wish list items.

If you would like to support Beyond Housing during this time, consider making a donation to support our COVID-19 emergency relief programs.

Purchasing items from our wish list is a great way to support these families. For example, our Housing Resource Coordination program provides affordable rental homes to low-income families. Wish list items, like cleaning supplies and household maintenance items, will be used to create welcome home baskets. Our Family Engagement Liaisons program provides each school in the Normandy Schools Collaborative with a staff person who can help students and families navigate much needed resources. Wish list items such as winter coats, backpacks and toiletries will help our staff better serve these students.

The items listed below are needed year-round. For health and safety reasons we ask that all donations be of new, unused items. Your donations are welcomed and appreciated.

    • Dish soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, all purpose cleaner, glass cleaner, magic erasers, disinfectant spray, paper towels, gloves, trash bags, sponges, mops, brooms and dust pans

Ears to Hear and Eyes to See

For the last several months, I have been preaching from the book of regional self-interest about the need to invest in our collective future. I firmly believe in the truth that our region is only as strong as the communities within it, and that if we are going to change the trajectory of St. Louis we need to invest in the communities that have historically been left behind.
