Local nonprofit agencies give a lot of credit to their donors.

Now they can give $250,000 more.

Six agencies recently got state tax credits to give to contributors in the next year. Donations will fund counseling, medical care, housing and other services for needy people in Elkhart County.

'They create a huge bonus for local contributors who want to support the health care center anyway,' said James Gingerich, director of Maple City Health Care Center, which got the maximum $50,000 in credits. 'It really makes a huge difference in our ability to raise funds.'"
