IT'S STILL NOT TOO LATE

TO TELL THE STATE WHERE TO PUT YOUR 2017 TAX DOLLARS!

REDIRECT YOUR TAX DOLLARS TO HELP CHILDREN IN FOSTER CARE!

Make your state tax dollars count by making an AZ foster care tax credit donation to Arizona Friends of Foster Care. Your donation creates more than just an opportunity for a child in foster care to participate in an activity that most kids do.  It brings welcome relief to a stressful situation:

 

At just 8 years old, Danny is living in foster care for the second time. The first time he and his baby brother were separated from their two older siblings. This time, he and his younger brother are staying with their grandmother. While they’re happy to be living with their grandparents, Danny was experiencing many emotional breakdowns that his grandmother says were absolutely heartbreaking. She found a great karate studio not far from her job and with the help of AFFCF, has been able to give Danny a safe and positive outlet to channel his energy and frustration. According to his grandmother, Danny leaves his karate class tired, hungry and happy!
AFFCF is one of 32 Qualifying Foster Care Organizations and we are the only one that serves children in foster care statewide. That means  you can receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit for your donations of up to $500 for single filers and up to $1,000 for joint filers . And more importantly, you’ll know that your gift helps children in foster care pursue athletic, educational and social activities that they may not be able to do otherwise.

keep spreading the word. it helps!

If you are a tax preparer, we ask that you share information about the AZ Foster Care Tax Credit and AFFCF. The flyer pictured below can be customized with your company logo simply by emailing Kim Searles or calling 602.252.9445.
