Children's Promise Act

Dear parents,

There is a great new opportunity with the update to the Children’s Promise Act to receive a Business Tax Credit while supporting St. Patrick School. The state of Mississippi is offering a tax credit for donations made to an Eligible Charitable Organization, which St. Patrick School qualifies for. Your donation to St. Patrick School can be a DOLLAR-FOR-DOLLAR TAX CREDIT for up to 50% of your Mississippi state tax liability. 

There are 3 Easy Steps:

Step 1- Download and complete the (FILLABLE) Application for Allocation of Contributions Made by Businesses to ECOs.pdf (

Step 2- Once you receive an allocation from MSDOR, simply make a donation to St. Patrick School to receive a credit up to 50% of your Mississippi state tax liability.

Step 3- Send verification of the contribution to the MSDOR. Verification must be received within 60 days of receipt of notification of allocation.

Please contact Emily Thompson at [email protected] ,   Montse Frias  at [email protected] or your local CPA for more information.

There is a statewide cap that will be approved by the Department of Revenue, so the program operates on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Once the statewide cap is reached, no more applications will be approved. The 2020 statewide cap was reached early, please consider helping St. Patrick while paying your business taxes before the 2021 cap is maxed out.

Thank you for supporting St. Patrick School.
