You give. Our participants win.
Your generous donations have a tremendous economic impact on our community and give valley youth the assistance they need to learn workplace skills, education, and many other opportunities. With this help they will be able to find higher-paying jobs and long-term careers, graduate from high school or earn a high school equivalency diploma. From corporate sponsorships to individual contributions to clothing donations to volunteering, you have many ways to help change lives through the dignity of work.
Arizona Tax Credits
The Arizona Charitable Tax Credit as well as School Tax credits are excellent options to support ACYR. An individual is eligible for an annual one-time tax-deductible donation of $400 (or $800 for a couple) for Arizona Qualifying Charitable Tax Credit. The deadline is April 15, 2018. Those who do not itemize can also take advantage of the tax credit. An individual is eligible for an annual one-time tax-deductible donation of $200 (or $400 for a couple) for School Tax Credit. This deadline is also April 15, 2018. Individuals can donate to both tax credit campaigns in the same year. If you already gave your tax-deductible donation to support ACYR, we sincerely thank you for your contribution. To receive both the federal deduction and the state tax credit, donation must be made by December 31, 2017.
