Giving locally to the Hinton Area Foundation allows you to make an amazing impact on the vitality of Summers County. As a thanks to you for your generosity, we’re offering you two ways to save on taxes by contributing to the Foundation.

1) The HAF still has $17,450 worth of Neighborhood Investment Program (NIP) tax credits available to WV residents who contribute to an existing fund or start a new fund of their own at the HAF. The minimum donation amount to qualify is $500. Your charitable gift will earn you 50% of your donation in WV NIP tax credits. And, if you itemize deductions, 100% of your gift qualifies toward your Federal Tax deductions.  See the WV Development Office’s brochure about the Neighborhood Investment Program for more details at:

2) This year only, the IRS is allowing taxpayers to take a Universal Tax Deduction for charitable gifts up to $300 on their 2020 Federal Taxes–whether you itemize or not! If you haven’t made your charitable gift yet, consider contributing to an existing fund or setting up your own with the Hinton Area Foundation. Check out our 2019 Annual Report to see examples of what your money can do and to find a listing of our existing funds.

Please contact Executive Director, Myra Hogan at (304) 309-5502 or by email at for a Tax Credit Reservation Form, to discuss setting up a fund of your own, or to get answers to any of your questions
