Arizona Charitable Tax Credit

What is the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit?

It allows you to donate to a qualifying charitable organization, such as the Boy Scouts of America, Catalina Council, to receive a dollar for dollar tax credit on your state taxes.

Your generous tax credit contribution enables Catalina Council, BSA to provide outreach programs that serve minority, at-risk, special needs, refugee, foster, and economically diverse youth in our state.

  • Scouting opportunities in low-income neighborhoods.
  • Uniforms and supplies for children who otherwise could not afford to participate in Scouting.
  • Access to camps and other outdoor activities.

By choosing to donate through the tax credit program, 100% of your money will go towards the Boy Scouts of America, and 100% comes back to you as a tax credit! 

Arizona taxpayers are eligible for a tax credit of up to $400 for individuals or $800 for joint filers for donations to Qualifying Charitable Organizations (Q.C.O.).
