AZ Foster Care Tax Credit
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.
There are several different tax credits that can be claimed. It is not either/or, contributions can be made to approved charities helping the working poor, foster care, public schools and private schools.
You do not have to make a contribution to Arizonans for Children at one time, you can make it in payments!
What do you get when you combine kids in foster care, goats and yoga? A wonderfully good time! Super BIG Thanks to Lil Goat Town for introducing the children we serve to your goats and yoga. The sunset was stunning, the goats hilarious and the laughter heart warming. This has to have been one of my very favorite events EVER! 🐏🐐🌵💓🧘♀️🧘♂️
The calming serenity of yoga coupled with the hilarity of the goats and the sunset on the beach sand, tiki torches surrounding the area - this was an evening the kids (and a staff, a board member and all the mentors) will never forget. There are times when I've talked to the kids in foster care as we interview them to match them with a volunteer Mentor when the kids cannot remember the last time they laughed. Thanks to Lil Goat Town
What a weekend at Arizonans for Children! Technology, technology and more technology!
We were very fortunate to be part of AZ Give Camp's Hack-a-Thon where teams of developers volunteer their time and expertise to engineer solutions for non-profits. The hack-a-thon started Friday afternoon at 3:00pm and went all the way until Sunday at 4:00pm!
Thanks to my new best friend Chris Huie, Arizonans for Children participated in this fantastic opportunity. Our team Tomas, Mandy and Cindy listened to our agency needs, tossed ideas around and came up with the perfect solution. This team developed an electronic check-in system that will offer faster check in and out times that will translate into more quality time spent on a visit for the families using the centers. This new system also tracks the data creating seamless reports while respecting and protecting the confidentiality of our clients. All of this was done with the knowledge that cost is always a factor in non-profits and th…
