Support Catholic Education and lower your Income Taxes

Thanks to our generous donors...
For the 2020-2021 School Year:
2,164 students were awarded MLTF tuition grants
$2,679,611 was awarded across the Diocese

For 2020, our goal is: $3,562,907
Currently we are at 7.2% of that goal with contributions at $254,855 
Remaining Credits: $3,308,052
So, we need your help!

What you can do today:
  • Put a reminder in your calendar to talk to your tax professional about MLTF (or call now!).
  • Like our social media pages and share posts about MLTF when you see them: Facebook:, Twitter: @scdiocese, Instagram: @siouxcitydiocese
  • Offer a testimonial about why you give to MLTF. Send them to: and we will promote those on social media and in our marketing materials.
  • Click on this green button below, and make your donation! We accept cash, stock, and grain! 
  • Tell others about MLTF! Need help explaining it? Here is some wording and a graphic for you below!
Iowa taxpayers, who contribute to STOs like MLTF receive an Iowa tax credit equal to 65% of their contribution.  The amount contributed may also qualify as a charitable donation on federal tax returns.

MLTF receives voluntary cash contributions from Iowa taxpayers and allocates those funds in tuition grants to Iowa school children, who in turn, use those grants to attend one of the schools in our Diocese.  At least 90% of the money received by MLTF must go back out in tuition grants.
Give Today!

Note: Please always consult a tax professional when considering your charitable donations and how they relate to you financial situation.

With the tax bill, school tuition organizations, like MLTF, will have these new opportunities:

  • Restriction on C-corporation donations to STOs of 25% of total contributions will be removed effective July 1, 2020.
  • An automatic escalator will kick in for calendar 2022 – if STOs statewide obtain at least 90% of tax credit allocation in a year, the cap is increased automatically by 10% for the following year.  That automatic escalator is capped at $20 million.

If all STOs in Iowa allocate 90% of their tax credits, we would reach $20 million statewide by 2025.
