These Scoutreach programs allow the Catalina Council to better serve families in our challenged neighborhoods by directing more resources to these areas. Your donation makes the Scouting experience a reality to someone that would otherwise be left out.
Reduce your tax liability while helping those who need it most. Thanks to the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit Program for Qualifying Charitable Organization, state taxpayers now have more incentive to make cash donations to the Catalina Council, Boy Scouts of America Scoutreach LLC.
Contributions of up to $400 for an individual tax payer or $800 for married couples filing jointly to the Catalina Council, Boy Scouts of America Scoutreach LLC qualifies for the Arizona Helping Qualifying Charitable Organization Tax Credit. This tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on Arizona income tax, which means your total tax bill can be reduced by this amount.
