Neighborhood Investment Program


The Neighborhood Investment Program (NIP) was established by the West Virginia Legislature in 1996 to increase charitable giving to local non-profit organizations. The program allows 501 (c)3 designated charitable organizations to apply tax credits vouchers. These organizations then distribute the vouchers to businesses and individuals who contribute to the organizations. By donating to approve NIP organizations, contributors can share their communities and earn credits to reduce certain West Virginia Taxes.


Donors may use the credits to reduce liability for the following West Virginia Taxes:

  • Corporate Net Income Tax

  • Business Franchise Tax 

  • Personal Income Tax


For more information, please contact taxpayer services, 1-800-982-8297 or email


Planned Giving


Charitable Giving The Seeing Hand Association is a 501 (c)3 organization incorporated in West Virginia in 1946. The Association is funded through fees for service, sales and community share. 

Bequest through a “will” is a very simple but effective means of making a charitable gift. 

Charitable Gift Annuity is a simple agreement that allows for a charitable gift and provides the donor with a current income, which typically has a higher fixed rate than other investment vehicles and provides for a charitable deduction. 

Life Insurance can be used to make a charitable gift of assets no longer needed. 

Retirement Assets can be used as a charitable planning alternative when the assets are no longer needed. 

There are a variety of other vehicles that can be used to make charitable gifts. Please consult your financial advisor for the appropriate vehicle to match your needs. Always remember to review your “will” at each significant event in your life. (Death/birth of someone) 

As always your gifts are greatly appreciated and are used “to encourage, challenge and empower individuals to maximize their potential in all areas of life.”
