  • Bethany Home Association was one of 25 non-profit organizations in Kansas to be awarded tax credits under the Kansas Department of Commerce’s Community Service Tax Credit Program.
    As the result of a competitive application process, Bethany Home Association was awarded $215,000 in tax credits to be used for the development of its new Homes Plus care facility in Assaria. Upon completion, the facility will accommodate up to 12 residents, providing health care while allowing seniors to remain in their community.
    “Community Service Tax Credits support the fund-raising efforts of organizations that help make Kansas a great place to live,” Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George said. “The nonprofits receiving CSP awards serve communities all across our state by providing a wide range of services that enhance the quality of life and create economic opportunity.”
    The CSP program provides nonprofits tax credits, which are worth 70 percent in rural communities, such as Lindsborg.
    The credits allow donors to financially contribute to a project at a much lower cost.
    A donor making a $1,000 donation would receive a $700 refundable tax credit to be used against his or her Kansas income tax liability.
    “We were excited to receive the news of the tax credits,” said Dale Hoosier, Bethany Home Association development director. “This provides us with a unique opportunity to raise funds for our new Assaria homes plus project. Bethany Home looks forward to delivering quality, Christ-centered health care to residents of rural McPherson and Saline counties.”
    The Bethany Home Association is a not-for-profit, continuous-care retirement community providing more than 100 years of Christ-centered services and care for the aging and handicapped. Located in Lindsborg, the association is a social ministry of the Central States Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. The campus includes a 100-bed health care center, 20 assisted living apartments and 48 independent living cottages and duplexes. The home has a five-star rating by the federal Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services and is endorsed by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.
