“if something is worth doing, it is worth doing well”

 We invite you to join Matthew’s Crossing in our fight against hunger. Our neighbors in need look like you and I – they just find themselves in that place where things just don’t add up. When you donate your Arizona Tax Credit, we will do the hard work and put it to good use.


When giving to a qualified charitable organization, your gift of $470 (filing single) -or- $938 (filing jointly), gives you a dollar-for-dollar credit on your Arizona State Tax Return. 


A tax credit is significantly more beneficial than a tax deduction. A tax credit reduces your Arizona State taxes, dollar-for-dollar. A tax deduction reduces the taxable income upon which your tax liability is calculated.

For example, If you owe $938 in state taxes and donate $938, you owe nothing. The entire amount comes back to you!
