Foster Care Tax Credit

In Arizona, you decide where your tax dollars go.

The Arizona Foster Care Tax Credit helps at-risk foster children and reduces your state income tax.
Your donation is a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on your Arizona taxes up to $1,000.


Your gift is a dollar-for-dollar tax credit, which is more valuable than a tax deduction. A tax credit will help reduce your overall state tax liability and is not impacted by your tax withholdings during the course of the year*. If you withheld more than what you owed, the credit will result in an increase in your state tax refund. If you have no Arizona tax liability for the current year, you may carry the tax credit forward for up to five years. And, you do not have to itemize on your state taxes – so even working teens can give!

Take full advantage of this tax credit opportunity and thereby help the 18,000 children in foster care. Thank you!
