Direct Your Tax Credit to Help Arizona Families

Donations to AZA United go to programs for families with various types of needs - from teaching basic daily living skills to improving challenging behaviors so children can live with their families and succeed in the community. This is what your donation means to those we serve.

In spite of the extraordinary challenges that families have been facing this year, our kids are resilient and successful Resilient Hearts and YOU can support them!

Arizona Autism United is qualified through the state of Arizona for the Charitable Organization Tax Credit. This unique program allows donors to receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit up to $400 for individuals, or $800 for married couples. You can decide how your tax dollars impact the community when you make a contribution to AZA United and receive a refund when you file your taxes. It is that easy!

Additionally, donors this year are eligible for a $300 deduction on your federal taxes as a result of the CARES Act, even if you do not itemize your tax return and use the standard deduction. Learn more here about this unique opportunity.
