How is Community Services funded?
Although revenue sources and amounts vary from year-to-year, only about half of Community Services typical funding comes from County General Funds. One-third of revenues are provided by federal and state grants, and of the remainder, some funding comes from non-profit foundations and private donations. Community Services is considered a public non-profit so contributions made to its programs and services are tax deductible. Community Services is also on the State of Arizona’s list of qualifying charitable organizations which is necessary for donations to qualify for the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit. All contributions through the Charitable Tax Credit are a dollar for dollar credit off your state taxes, up to $400 for an individual and $800 for a couple filing jointly.
