AZ TAX CREDIT
Use your AZ charitable tax credit to make a difference in your community.
When you give to Defenders of Children for the AZ Charitable Tax Credit, you make a direct impact in the life of someone in crisis. Your donation will directly provide:
- Life-saving advocacy and safety planning for victims of family violence
- Counseling for survivors of child abuse and human trafficking
- Legal representation and REAL access to justice
You will also qualify for a dollar-for-dollar tax credit up to $800 for married couples, or up to $400 for individuals. Plus, you can still qualify for the school, foster care, and veteran tax credits as well.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I claim this tax credit and still donate to the school and foster care tax credit programs?

Must I itemize my taxes to take the credit?
