Our Vision Statement
A community where a culture of life thrives on the truths found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ concerning the sanctity of human life, marriage and family.
Our Mission Statement
The mission of Options for Women is to confidentially aid those facing abortion decisions in Northeastern Missouri and surrounding area through the complimentary clinical, material, educational, emotional, and spiritual support required to make Christ-centered lifestyle choices.
Pregnancy Resource Center Tax Credit
Options for Women, along with other Pregnancy Resource Centers in the state of Missouri, has received an equal share of $2.5 million dollars in Missouri Income tax credits. Our equal share is $36,231.88. Because these funds are limited, they will be processed on a first come – first served basis.
The way it works is for each $1.00 given you can receive a $.50 tax credit, right off the top of your tax bill. That is the difference between a tax credit and merely a deduction, which just reduces the amount of your income that can be taxed. Or for a more real life example, say you want to donate a net of $500 to Options for Women. You donate $1,000, then receive a $500 tax credit from the state to take right off the top of your tax bill and pay $500 less in taxes. Because the funds are limited, when they are gone, they are gone. We may have access to other centers unused portions, but there are no guarantees.
You complete your portion of the form and return it to Options for Women. We then complete our portion and forward the requests all together to the state. To be eligible for 2016 taxes, you would have to get your donation to us by the end of the year.
