GraceMed, a local safety net clinic, has been awarded $200,000 in tax credits from the Kansas Department of Commerce through the Kansas Community Service Tax Credit Program, according to a news release.

It was one of 25 nonprofits around the state to receive the award and the only one in the Wichita. The credits are awarded to encourage fundraising for the organizations. More than $4 million was given in tax credits statewide.

GraceMed is currently raising funds for Project Oasis, a system of clinics in south Wichita for the uninsured and underinsured. The clinics are being constructed at Oaklawn Elementary School, Jardine Middle School, West High School and Clark Elementary School, and a 29,000 square foot “hub” clinic will be built on the campus of the South Branch YMCA.

Dave Sanford, GraceMed CEO, says those interested in donating and in the credits can contact him at 316-866-2001.

Projects eligible for tax credit awards include community service, crime prevention and health care and up to $250,000 is given for individual projects.
