When you make an endowed gift to the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque or any of its funds, it will cost you far less thanks to Iowa's generous state tax credit. For example, after the state tax credit and federal deduction, a $10,000 gift will cost a couple in the 35% tax bracket just $4,000.
