Habitat for Humanity of Northern Arizona is one of several qualifying nonprofits for the AZ Working Poor Tax Credit. (For a full list of nonprofits, click here.) What does that mean? Well, if you pay taxes in Arizona, you can donate up to $200 (or $400 if you're filing with a partner) and get all of that money back when you file your 2013 taxes. If you want to learn more, visit the Arizona Department of Revenue site on charitable donations or jump down to the bottom of this post for eligible nonprofits in Flagstaff. Or skip that and hit the donate button now!
What does that mean for us? It means working to keep our community's tax dollar right here! Eric Wolverton has been spearheading several campaigns that support Habitat for Humanity of Northern Arizona and other partners like Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Flagstaff and the Flagstaff Family Food Center. This has taken a few different forms:
The 200 @ 200 Campaign: 100% of every dollar donated to this campaign goes directly into our house build savings account. Eric has been posting regularly on our Facebook page with updates. Thanks to the booming business at our ReStore, your donations don't pay for any administrative salaries. We're counting down from 200 and are at 176, so help us reach our goal for our spring house build! We can keep as much as $9 million dollars in Flagstaff with the AZ Working Poor Tax Credit, so help us to help others!
Educating Our Community Partners: We've been busy talking with local businesses about the AZ Working Poor Tax Credit so that they can do some of the footwork for us. Full Circle Trade & Thrift and Edward Jones are just two businesses that have donated to us to support our work in the community. If your business wants to know more, contact Eric Wolverton.
103.7 The Eagle Advertising Collaboration: 103.7 The Eagle is working with Habitat and all other qualifying partner nonprofits of the Working Poor Tax Credit. This collaboration educates the public on how we can all support our community. For more information, stay tuned to our Facebook page or you can contact Eric Wolverton or Steve Benning at The Eagle.
NRI's Harvesting Change Campaign: Our Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative has been active repainting homes, cleaning up neighborhoods, and collaborating with various partners this year. (See more at the NRI Gallery!) For a successful season in 2014, we need to plant seeds now. That's why we will soon launch our Harvesting Change Campaign for donations for revitalization work throughout our service area. For more information, stay tuned or get in touch with me (by clicking here).
That's it for now. You can click the donate button at the side or check the list of eligible nonprofits that you can support. And don't forget to spread the word!
