Featured Charity Partner - Southwest Human Development

Donate to Support Arizona Youth on this page to support Southwest Human Development (#20390).

Southwest Human Development is Arizona’s largest nonprofit dedicated to early childhood development – and one of the largest in the nation! We know early experiences matter the most. Helping more than 135,000 young children and their families each year, Southwest Human Development provides 40 early childhood programs and services focused on child development, mental health, disabilities services, early literacy, Head Start, family support and child welfare, and professional development and training for families and those who work with young children

100% of your contribution will be forwarded by ECC SAY, LLC to Southwest Human Development along with other designated gifts we secure – in addition, Southwest Human Development will receive a 25% matching grant (up to $5,000) through this Challenge and will be eligible for additional bonus grants ranging from $2,500 (1st place) to $500 (5th place) for those Partners who raise the most donations through the Spring Challenge. Your gift is magnified and provides more support for Arizona’s young children.

Give a Dollar, Get a Dollar – thanks to the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit, you can support Arizona’s young children, often at no net cost to you!  For donations to a qualified charity like Southwest Human Development, a tax credit up to $400 for single Arizona tax filers and $800 for married/joint filers is available.

Remember, donations can still be made up until you file your taxes (April 15, 2021) to receive the tax credit for 2020!

Be sure to revisit our general SAY page after you donate to Southwest Human Development to take full advantage of all available tax credit donations — you may also qualify for up to an additional $500 (single filer) or $1,000 (joint filer) tax credit for a donation to a Qualifying Foster Care Charity.  Donations you make to other foster care organizations will also count towards Southwest Human Development’s total for the bonus grants.
