In early March – when spring training was in full swing, schools were just starting spring break, and before the impacts of COVID-19 were felt in our state – we launched our spring giving campaign focused on making Arizona a Destination for Education. Our work is as important as ever, and we still need your support.
In response to the pandemic, we doubled down on supporting students, parents and educators. In just the last three weeks thousands of people have turned to Expect More Arizona for information and resources, including:
Expect More Arizona's efforts to raise awareness of critical issues and get people involved in advancing solutions has never been more important. While the ways we connect with individuals has changed for now, our team continues to work with communities statewide to find and implement long-term solutions to ensure every student receives an excellent education every step of the way.
Please support our work with a donation today as we help make certain Arizona can be a Destination for Education in the years to come.
All gifts made by close of business on April 30 will be matched dollar-for-dollar! A small group of amazing donors put up a $20,000 match and they have graciously agreed to extend the timeline through the end of April.
Thank you for your generosity!
Note: New Charitable Giving Incentives for Donors to 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organizations
The federal CARES Act, which was just passed by Congress and signed by the President, creates charitable giving incentives for donors to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. Section 2204 of the CARES Act includes a new above-the-line deduction (universal or non-itemized deduction that applies to all taxpayers) for total charitable contributions of up to $300. The incentive applies to contributions made in 2020 and would be claimed on tax forms next year.
Section 2205 of the CARES Act lifts the existing cap on annual contributions for those who itemize, raising it from 60 percent of adjusted gross income to 100 percent. For corporations, the legislation raises the annual limit from 10 percent to 25 percent.
