Gifts of Cash
A gift of cash is a simple and easy way for you to make a gift.
Gifts of Retirement Assetss
Donating part or all of your unused retirement assets such as a gift from your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plan is an excellent way to make a gift to our organization.
Gifts of Real Estate
Donating appreciated real estate, such as a home, vacation property, undeveloped land, farmland, ranch or commercial property can make a great gift to our organization.
Gifts of Insurance
A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to charity. If you have a life insurance policy that has outlasted its original purpose, consider making a gift of your insurance policy. For example, you may have purchased a policy to provide for minor children and they are now financially independent adults.
Gifts of Business Interests
As a business owner, you have the opportunity not only to build your business and accumulate wealth for yourself and your family, but also to accomplish your philanthropic goals through charitable planning. A gift of your corporate stock or assets can provide you with tax and income benefits and help further our mission.

How the Arizona Tax Credit Works
When you file your Arizona taxes, you can claim a dollar-for-dollar Arizona Charitable Tax Credit that will either reduce your tax liability or increase your refund. Learn More
2 Ways 2 Give
- Qualifying Charitable Organization Tax Credit, single filers maximum gift $400 and married filers up to $800. Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley, Arizona State QCO Code: 20331 on AZDOR Form 321
- Public School Tax Credit, single filers maximum gift $200 and married filers up to $400. Mesa Arts Academy, School Tax Credit TDS Code: 078613101 on AZDOR Form 322
If a couple owes a $1,000 in state income tax, and donates $800, they may subtract the $800 from their tax bill and pay the state only $200.
If they owe NOTHING in Arizona state income taxes, and donate $800, they will get a refund of at least $800 back from the state — what a great way to give to BGCAZ AND get money back, dollar for dollar!
The Tax Credit is available to you even if you do not itemize your deductions on your taxes. And you can take advantage of BOTH tax credits.
If you make your direct contribution to Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley, or Mesa Arts Academy, it must be received prior to your tax filing.
