Arizonans for Children is a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization and therefore your donation is tax deductible if you itemize your Federal income tax return.
Under Arizona law (A.R.S. 43-1088.G.2--tax credit for donations to a Qualifying Foster Care Charitable Organization) Arizonans for Children, Inc. is a Qualifying Foster Care Charitable organization and cash donations are entitled to a tax credit of $500 for single individuals and $1,000 for married couples filing jointly on the Arizona tax return. This credit can reduce taxes for these tax filers more than a regular deduction for contributions to charitable nonprofits, because they may get a dollar-for-dollar reduction in taxes owed. A tax credit is significantly more beneficial than a tax deduction. A tax credit reduces your taxes, dollar-for-dollar. A tax deduction reduces the taxable income upon which your tax liability is calculated.
You do not need to itemize deductions to claim this Arizona tax credit.
100% of your donation goes to the children's programs,
NONE will go for administration or fundraising.
Financial and In-Kind Support
As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, AFC relies solely upon the generosity and commitment of community members to provide critical services to foster youth; and we gratefully accept your tax-deductible financial and in-kind donations in support of our programs or operating expenses.
Call 480-838-0085 if you wish to donate.
