Vicki Mays (left), Senior Vice President and City Executive/First Community Bank, presented a $500 donation from First Community Bank to the Bluefield State College Foundation in support of scholarship opportunities at the College. The First Community Bank donation was a gift that matched a donation of $500 from Vicki and Watson Mays to the BSC Foundation. Karen Harvey (right), BSC Foundation Executive Director, accepted the donation on behalf of the Foundation and the College. The gift and match qualify for state tax credits through the Neighborhood Investment Program (NIP), available to donors who make qualifying gifts of $500 or more. Donors receive half their gifts back as state tax credits, and their donations are fully tax deductible on federal tax returns. The credits may be applied to business tax expenses or an individual’s personal tax return, and they may be claimed in a single year or over a five-year period.
