Annual Appeal

An Annual Appeal is conducted in the fourth quarter of each year.  A letter is mailed to past donors and concerned citizens in the Greater Tucson Area who have expressed interest in helping us achieve our mission to support the unmet needs of abused and neglected children in Pima County.

The CASA Support Council for Pima County, Inc. is certified by the Arizona Department of Revenue as a  Qualifying Foster Care Charitable Organization (QFCCO).  SB1216, signed into law in May, 2016, increased the amounts taxpayers may claim for this certification.  It also allows taxpayers to claim a tax credit for contributions to QFCCO.

The Qualifying Foster Care Charitable Organization tax credit is: $500 for individuals and $1000 for married couples.

Contributions do not have to be made all at once.  You may contribute throughout the year and receive a tax receipt for each contribution.

Arizona Tax Credit

A CONTRIBUTION TO THE CASA SUPPORT COUNCIL NEED NOT COME OUT OF YOUR POCKET!

It costs you nothing to contribute as this is a dollar-for-dollar credit, not a deduction.  If you think this is too good to be true, consider that Arizona allows its residents to decide how to spend some of their tax dollars. If you want severely abused and neglected children in Pima County to benefit from your assistance, then please donate to the CASA Support Council for Pima County, Inc. (CSCPC), which is a Qualifying Foster Care Charitable Organization.
SB1217, signed into law in May, 2016,  provides that a charitable tax donation that is made on or before April 15th following the close of the taxable year may be applied to either the current or preceding taxable year and is considered to have been made on the last day of that taxable year.

How to get the Credit:

  1. Contribute to CSCPC using cash, check or credit card by April 15th, 2017.
  2. Acquire Arizona Form 321.  Report the name of the qualifying charitable organization you contributed to, as well as the dollar amount of your donation.
  3. Your tax form booklet will have it or you can download it from www.azdor.gov or call 800-352-4090.
  4. Fill out and file this form along with your Arizona tax return.
  5. This credit is available only to individuals, not corporations or partnerships.  If the State withheld more than you owe, your refund will be higher.  If they withheld less than you owe, you will pay less.
