The Virginia Air & Space Center Opportunity Program, Inc. provides free or reduced educational programs to groups that show financial need through support from individuals, businesses and foundations. Educational experiences have been provided to over 275,000 students since the program’s inception!
Our region is anchored by aerospace and defense facilities, major medical centers and higher education; therefore we attract high-tech businesses and require a highly educated workforce. Your contributions to the VASC Opportunity Program will support this local need and have a direct impact on children in our community. Your support will enable the VASC Opportunity Program to deliver engaging Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) educational programs and live science demonstrations to community children.
Your support is now more critical than ever.
This year, we have been asked to more than double our program delivery capabilities. We are humbled by the overwhelming need for robust science curriculum in our community and we are proud to work in partnership with six of our local peninsula and south-side school districts to fulfill this need with custom designed programs that are SOL correlated. Your private donations to the VASC Opportunity Program, a Virginia State Department of Education Neighborhood Assistance Act Tax Credit Program (NAP Program) for Education, are directed to educate low-income and disabled students and at the same time provide you with the additional benefit of
tax credits as well as regular tax deductions.
The current Virginia state tax credit rate is 65%.
A donation of $1,000 will return a Virginia State Tax Credit in the amount of $650 in addition to regular state and federal tax deductions.
The power of your generosity cannot be understated for our
community children and our Center.
We thank you for your support of the
VASC Opportunity Program!
