Working Poor Tax Credit Information

Support Desert Mission by directing some of your tax dollars through the Arizona Working Poor Tax Credit. This is a direct credit, not a deduction. You can reduce your state income tax payment by as much as $200 for an individual and $400 for a married couple filing jointly when you give that amount to a qualifying not-for-profit organization. Make your donation now.

Employee Match

Did you know that many companies offer to match their employee's financial gifts or volunteer time? Check with your company's Human Resources (HR) office to see if it offers matching gifts. If your employer offers these programs, HR should provide you with a matching gift form to accompany your donation. Board members and management spouses may be eligible for a match as well.

  • Monetary Match: Companies "match" the charitable contributions made by their employees. Through corporate gift matching, your employer can multiply your gift to Desert Mission, making it go further.
  • Volunteer Time Match: The hours employees spend donating time and skills to eligible non-profits can also be matched with dollars, giving an added benefit to their favorite community organizations.

Visit our Matching Gift Finder to see whether your company is eligible for Employee Matching.
