The Arizona State Charitable Tax Credit is a dollar-for-dollar tax credit up to $400 on an individual filing or $800 when filing jointly, this credit is a crucial way to raise funds for Phoenix Childrenâ€™s. Gifts up to Tax Day (April 18th for 2022) can be applied to the previous yearâ€™s taxes.
Monies raised go to help patients like 17-year-old Ally. Ally has been part of the Phoenix Childrenâ€™s family since being diagnosed at 2 months old with Diamond-Blackfan anemia (DBA), a rare genetic blood disorder where the bone marrow does not produce enough red blood cells. It requires frequent blood transfusions and monthly visits to several specialists.
Throughout her journey, Ally not only has received exceptional clinical care, but she has also benefited from many of the hospitalâ€™s donor-funded family-centered care services. During Allyâ€™s younger years, she absolutely loved the Animal-Assisted Therapy Program (she still does!). As she has gotten older, the teachers at 1 Darn Cool School, the in-hospital school, have helped Ally keep up with her schoolwork so she doesnâ€™t fall behind.
Because of Allyâ€™s unique condition, her family has spent many hours over the years driving from their home in the West Valley to the main hospital campus in Phoenix. Phoenix Childrenâ€™s is expanding and adding new hospital, emergency and specialty services throughout the Valley.
