Financial and In-Kind Support
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.
