What does this mean for you?

As a Missouri taxpayer, whether an individual or business, you can positively impact homeless moms and babies while positively impacting your taxes. This opportunity is available to you at a significantly lower cost than previous years through special tax credits.

Who benefits from your impact?

The mom that is living outside behind a building, wondering if she can even deliver her baby in a safe home. The pregnant mom that sleeps in a car wash stall. The parenting mom and baby that faces the threat of domestic violence from their own family. These are real experiences of moms and babies that call Mother’s Refuge home. You have the opportunity to expand your impact to moms today!


Who Qualifies?

Under the state of Missouri's Maternity Home Tax Credit, donations to Mother's Refuge may be eligible to any Missouri taxpayer, whether an individual or business.

What is the minimum charitable gift to be eligible?

Individuals and businesses who pay taxes to the state of Missouri and make a qualifying donation of $100 or more may be eligible for a Maternity Home Tax Credit equal to 70% of your donation.

How do tax credits work?

In addition to the federal deduction, by using the Maternity Home tax credits, a donor is also able to claim 70% of the donation as a state tax credit.

Am I eligible if I donate, but live in another state?

Tax credits are only available for the state of Missouri.

Will you provide homeless moms and babies the support they need to live and grow in a safe and loving home?


All donations of $100 or more may be eligible for an additional 70% Missouri tax credit.

Donations to Mother’s Refuge pay off in the changed lives of vulnerable young mothers and their babies. They also pay you back in practical ways at tax time.

Mother’s Refuge, a state-licensed maternity home, has been a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization since 1987. All donations are tax-deductible, and you will receive a receipt for all donations for tax purposes.

Remember, Mother’s Refuge is not affiliated with any large organization that underwrites our operation. We depend solely on the generosity of our many friends, businesses and corporations that graciously support us. We thank you in advance for your contribution to help provide a positive environment for homeless pregnant and parenting teens and young moms.
