Who will hear the cries of pain from a child who has been burned, broken and bruised from physical abuse? Or who will see the hurt in the eyes of a child who is going to school hungry, dirty and ashamed because they are being neglected? None of us want any child to hurt ever again. SCAN can stop this childhood suffering with your help.
Each day, SCAN extends the hand of hope and support to some of our community's most vulnerable families. Families in which mom and dad have abused and neglected their sons and daughters. Families that turn to us to learn how to end the violence in their lives so they can be safe and nurturing for their little ones.
You can donate by using PayPal online, or by contacting our main office by phone at (260) 421-5000.
With your help children will build the skills they need to cope with change and adversity caused by child abuse. We can give parents the tools they need to care for their children with love instead of abuse and neglect.

The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) offers up to $2.5 million in Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) Tax Credits annually for distribution by 501(C) 3 not-for-profit corporations. These organizations use NAP Tax Credits as an incentive to help leverage more contributions from individuals and businesses for certain neighborhood-based programs and projects. By contributing to SCAN and utilizing our NAP Credits you can reduce your tax liability to the State of Indiana.
NAP Credits are not currently available. Credits may be re-allocated in the coming months. To be contacted if credits become available in the future, please contact the Resource Development department at [email protected] or 260-421-5000 x 2237. If no re-allocation is received, it is our hope that credits will be available starting on 7/1/2016.
When you contribute to SCAN through this NAP program you receive 50% of your donation in the form of NAP credits, which is deductible directly off of your state tax liability. As an example, a donation to SCAN through this program of $5,000 would give the donor a credit of $2,500 off of their state tax liability. Eligible donors include any person, business, or organization that has an Indiana income tax liability. Donors can make contributions over a period of time as long as it is in the same calendar year and credits are still available. The process is very simple:

First, have your tax preparer prepare your Federal taxes as normal. Be sure to give your tax preparer your donation letter from SCAN for the contribution to claim the charitable contribution allowed by Federal guidelines for the tax year filed. Secondly, you will receive from the Indiana Department of Revenue an NC-20 form, which you will give to your tax preparer to utilize and claim your tax credit from the State. This credit will be fifty percent (50%) of the amount you donated to SCAN. Your tax preparer will use this credit to reduce your tax liability to the State.
For questions regarding NAP Credits, please contact the Resource Development department.
