Stock, DAF Direction and Tax Benefits

There are so many ways to give to Habitat NCC! Whether you prefer to give through your donor-advised fund, make a gift of appreciated securities or receive a Delaware State Tax Credit for your qualifying gift, we can help.

Give back - get back. With the NAA Tax Credit, your qualifying gift could earn you a Delaware State Tax Credit worth half of your gift.

neighborhood assistance tax credit

Your qualifying gift to Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County, in the 2021 tax year, may earn you a Neighborhood Assistance Act tax credit equal to 50% of your gift.

Tax-credit funding is limited – and awarded on a first-come, first-served, basis. Qualifying contributions of $2,500 or more from individuals and $10,000 or more from businesses may apply for the tax credit.

Help us help you! Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County will submit your application through the DSHA portal.

The portal opens on January 20. Making your gift online is the quickest and easiest way to secure your tax credit.

To submit an application for the tax credit, contact Julie Karavan via email at or by text at 302-300-0533.

NAA Tax Credit Application

Form 2001AC


DSHA has included the following guidance for 2021 regarding the NAA Tax Credit program:

  • Contributions to traditional IRA accounts are not eligible for NAA credits.
  • Donations to Donor Advised Funds are not eligible for NAA credits.
  • Donations must be dated and received by the non-profit within the 2021 tax year to qualify.
  • Applications must be complete and include NAA application, Form 2001AC and proof of donation in PDF form only
  • Checks made payable to the non-profit for the benefit of a donor must include additional documentation to indicate donor ownership/type of account. (For example, a bank check made payable to the non-profit notating it is coming from a donor account).
  • Stock donations must include donor account statement information indicating the withdrawal and the non-profit statement indicating transfer to their account. Statements should include the donor name. Please note: Stock donations take longer to process as information is needed from the brokers

donor advised funds

You can create a grant recommendation from your donor-advised fund to support Habitat for Humanity.

As with all gift planning, you should consult with your tax advisor and lawyer to determine what planned gift strategy is best for your current tax situation and income requirements
