You Can Direct Your Tax Dollars to Help Families

Many of the families we serve face unimaginable challenges every day, but you can help! Donations to AZA United go to programs for families with diverse types of needs. Your donation today allows children to acquire basic daily skills, like taking their first steps, saying their first words, preparing their first meal independently, and graduating from school. You also support programs to help children learn appropriate behavior so they can live fulfilling lives at home and be integrated in the community.


Arizona Autism United is qualified through the state of Arizona for the Charitable Organization Tax Credit. That means you can get a 100% refund for your donation!

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's that easy!
