Pima County makes it easy for its employees to support the charitable organizations that have made a difference in their lives and the lives of others in our community.
Your donation this month to any of more than 200 organizations through the Employee Combined Appeal Program shows how much Pima County employees United as One care about the community we live and work in.
The 2013-14 ECAP campaign begins Thursday, Oct. 10. ECAP solicitors and coordinators in your department will provide you with the forms you need to fill out and return no later than November 1.
If you already give to organizations listed in the agency directory, consider making your donation through ECAP to show how much Pima County employees care about the community we live and work in.
Employees’ pledges and donations to local charities in last year’s campaign increased 6.1 percent to $466,735.62 from $439,748.76 the previous year.
The needs are great. Please be generous.
Give – and get a tax credit
Did you know that giving to a charitable organization through ECAP could cost you nothing?
If you give to a nonprofit organization that provides assistance to the working poor and that has registered with the state of Arizona, you may be eligible for a tax credit that reduces dollar for dollar what you pay in state income tax.
Couples who file jointly can reduce their state taxes by up to $400; individuals or heads of households can claim a tax credit of up to $200. You can give – and receive!
