    I noticed that all potential participants have to pre-submit an application, which must be approved, before they can make the contribution. Also, there is an annual state wide cap, which is likely why there is pre-approval process.

      so chances are plenty of people will make contributions.

      I don't remember exactly,   but caps at 75% of tax obligation.   The link has a link to the statute.

      I haven't looked at regulations,  so I don't know what pass through options, etc. do to affect small closely held corporations that have S treatment, etc.

      Nevertheless,  the example at the DOR website shows a couple with a $4000 charitable exemption at the federal level calculation, will also get $1500 credit on state taxes after the caps are applied.   That can easily be 25% of the  state tax burden of a family making about $75K.It is a meaningful shift in tax burdens.
