We are proud to
Embrace Arizona Families and Offer Support
From becoming licensed to be a foster parent, to taking in relatives unexpectedly, to donating time through mentoring or volunteering or a monetary donation, Arizona families care about Arizona’s children. Our organization was founded by parents 19 years ago to support, empower and educate families who love these children whether they are a kinship, foster, or adoptive family. There are over 12,000 children in foster care in Arizona with more than 5,000 living in foster homes.
“We love AZAFAP! We have attended so many great events and our kids know that every time we go they will have fun. Whether it’s shoes, jackets, bikes or whatever they have been over the moon every time. I would definitely recommend them to any foster or adoptive parent!”
We are a foster care qualifying organization, and your donation (new amounts for 2023!) of up to $1,051 for a couple filing jointly or $526 for a single tax filer, may qualify for the Arizona Foster Care Qualifying Organization Tax Credit. Donate online or download the form to mail:

WHAT IS THE ARIZONA TAX CREDIT FOR QUALIFYING FOSTER CARE CHARITABLE ORGANIZATIONS?
Arizona law allows you to claim a tax credit of up to $1,051 for taxpayers filing jointly and $526 (new amounts for 2023!) for individuals’ voluntary contributions you make during any taxable year to a Foster Care Charitable Organization like AZAFAP! Our QFCO code is 10008.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Taking advantage of the tax credit allows you either to increase the amount of refund you receive from the state or decrease what you owe to the state. It also allows a say in what your payment actually does. Our QFCO Code is 10008
IS THERE A LIMIT TO HOW MUCH I CAN GIVE?
AZAFAP will accept donations in any amount. The most you can give for the tax credit starting for tax year 2023 is:

DO YOU RECEIVE ANY FUNDING FROM THE STATE?
