Dear Missouri Girls Town Supporter,

Missouri Girls Town is excited to announce we have received $155,734
in Missouri state income tax credits to offer our supporters. You are
invited to take advantage of this opportunity offered through the
Missouri Department of Economic Development’s Youth Opportunity
Program (YOP). Donors who make donations of at least $100 during a
calendar year and before March 31, 2025, are eligible for the standard
state and federal charitable deductions, as well as a 50% state tax
credit offered through the YOP. Even donors who do not itemize their
deductions reduce their out-of-pocket cost by half!

Your gift is vital to our nonprofit organization. As a provider to
youth in Missouri’s care, we receive just 51% of our operating costs
from government programs:

43% – Department of Social Services’ Children’s Division’s per diem
residential care rate
6% – Medicaid billing for therapy services (individual, group, and
family sessions)
2% – Reimbursements for breakfast and lunch from the USDA’s free and
reduced lunch program

To find out more about how you can take advantage of this opportunity
to mitigate your tax obligation and to help young women in need,
please call (573) 642-5345 or email I look
forward to connecting with you to discuss an investment in Missouri’s

Jenny Preiss
Executive Director
