Phoenix Children's Needs You This Tax Day
By Claire Natale - Tuesday Apr 19, 2022
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 Children’s. Gifts up to Tax Day (April 18th for 2022) can be applied to the previous year’s taxes.

Monies raised go to help patients like 17-year-old Ally. Ally has been part of the Phoenix Children’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 hospital’s donor-funded family-centered care services. During Ally’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 doesn’t fall behind.

Because of Ally’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 Children’s is expanding and adding new hospital, emergency and specialty services throughout the Valley.

Phoenix Children’s is one of the nation’s largest pediatric health systems. It comprises Phoenix Children’s Hospital – Main Campus, Phoenix Children’s Hospital – East Valley at Dignity Health Mercy Gilbert Medical Center, four pediatric specialty and urgent care centers, 11 community pediatric practices, 20 outpatient clinics, two ambulatory surgery centers and seven community-service-related outpatient clinics throughout the state of Arizona. The system has provided world-class inpatient, outpatient, trauma, emergency and urgent care to children and families for more than 35 years. Phoenix Children’s Care Network includes more than 850 pediatric primary care providers and specialists who deliver care across more than 75 subspecialties.
