Invest in Autism Families on AZ Gives Day

April is Autism Awareness Month, and we would like to invite you to support AZA United's mission to help as many families as possible with individualized supports.

Click here to schedule an online donation for Arizona Gives Day on Tuesday, April 2nd.  
AZ Gives Day is the one day when everyone in Arizona shows support for our state's nonprofits. In previous years, the funds raised by AZA United during AZ Gives Day have given families in need access to critical services and programs. This year, the funds raised will help us reach our goal of expansion, which means that even more families can be helped!

Arizona donors can receive a dollar-for-dollar refund as a state tax credit of up to $400 for individuals and $800 for married couples. All donations stay in Arizona, and 87 cents of every dollar goes directly to programs for children and families.  

Donations made before April 15th can still be claimed on your 2018 tax return!
 
Help us by scheduling your donation here and sharing with your contacts on social media. 
 
Thank you for supporting AZA United and Arizona Gives Day!
