Tax credits are a great way to support causes that you care about. In Arizona, you can redirect your state tax dollars to charity. This means that tax credits are a great way to make a difference in your community. Let's take a look at several ways in which you can use tax credits for the greater good.
Invest in the Future With an Early Education Program
Education is important. Early on, it promotes problem-solving, creativity, and social skills. Education is what allows future generations to get a head start and develop the skills that they need to be successful. However, it can be difficult for some children and parents. Special needs children, foster children, and homeless families are unlikely to get the proper education that they need to succeed. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the enrollment rate of three to five-year-old children in early education decreased to 84% in 2020. This means that nearly 16% of these children are not receiving the education that they need. This is where you can help. Consider using your Arizona tax credits to contribute to Catholic Charities Community Services and our early education programs. We provide a comprehensive education that lasts year-round to give these children the education that they deserve.
Provide Affordable Housing
Not everyone is lucky enough to have a place to call home. Homelessness is a major problem in many cities. Without a place to stay, people have to brave the elements of the outdoors. They are also vulnerable to theft or worse. With so many other things to worry about, it can be difficult to start a career and save for a home. This is why affordable housing is so crucial. Consider using your tax credits to support Catholic Charities Community Services' affordable housing projects. We aim to provide families with affordable and safe housing. A simple apartment can make all the difference in the lives of those who need them most.
There are many wonderful causes you can support with your Arizona State tax credits. However, investing in early education and affordable housing is a tremendous option. This is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Catholic Charities Community Services. We provide so many other crucial services to the community as well. For example, we have programs for counseling, domestic violence, foster care and adoption, youth development, and veteran services to just name a few. If any of these programs or services touch your heart, please consider redirecting your tax credits to Catholic Charities Community Services. For more information, call us today. We would be happy to answer any of your questions.
