Receive a dollar for dollar AZ Tax Credit when you donate!

Junior Achievement is a Qualifying Charitable Organization,which means any donation you make to us could qualify for a dollar-for-dollar charitable tax credit. Donations can still be made for your 2023 tax return! This tax credit is money you as a taxpayer can subtract from taxes owed to the government. Depending on your tax situation, you could claim up to a $421 tax credit if you are filing as “single,” “head of household,” or “married filing separate” or up to $841 if you are “married filing joint”. Essentially, instead of paying those taxes to the government, you are making a donation to Junior Achievement to help more low-income students receive our valuable education. And, by making that donation, you will either owe less taxes or receive a bigger refund, depending on your tax situation.

About Junior Achievement

For more than 65 years, Junior Achievement of Arizona (JA) has been empowering the futures of millions of Arizona students by giving them the knowledge and skills they need to manage their money, plan for their future, and make smart academic, career and economic choices. Delivered by 9,500 business and community volunteer mentors, our hands-on, age-appropriate programs focus on three key areas: financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship.

Thanks to your support, last year we served over 170,000 Arizona students. For every $34 you raise, you will sponsor one Arizona Student through our program! Together, we are empowering young people to own their economic success!
