In partnership with 140 exceptional local programs, Valley of the Sun United Way invests nearly $100 million to address the multiple causes of poverty in the Valley. Part of our fight for neighborhoods includes collaboration with leaders and residents of local communities to identify needs and build long-term solutions together. See what Chief Strategy and Program Officer, Nancy Dean, has to say about community empowerment.
Over the last year, community connections were made, 60,000+ students received breakfast in the classroom, 300,000 hours were spent mentoring kids in after school programs and 7000 adults got jobs. You can join the fight and make this work possible by giving a gift through the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit. Give up to $400 for individuals and $800 for couples and get back a dollar for dollar credit on your state taxes while giving to your community.
